Harker Asks: 'Is Pandoraâ€™s Westergren A Pathological Liar?'
April 9, 2010 at 12:44 PM (PT)
HARKER RESEARCH takes PANDORA CEO/FOUNDER TIM WESTERGREN to task in a blog on their website. In a staunch defense of traditional radio, they write, "Why are so many statistics and factoids TIM WESTERGREN, PANDORA’s founder, utters a distortion or lie? Is it because he doesn’t understand? Is it because he is misinformed? Or is it purposeful, a willful effort to distort and mislead?
"Were he just talking up his service, we could let it pass. The problem is that WESTERGREN seems to go out of his way to talk down local radio, fabricating false and misleading comparisons to denigrate local radio."
It's hot, and you can read the full blog here.
