TechCrunch blogger Michael Arrington reports that John Golson was fired from Valleywag, the Silicon Valley gossip Web site, after he posted an item criticizing his boss for cutting his pay. Golson complained in the post that his rate of pay — which is based on the number of page-views for his items — was being reduced, but he didn’t know by how much. Golson tells Arrington that he doesn’t know why he was fired, but says it probably wasn’t solely due to the critical post. It may also have been due to a “lack of enthusiam” following the pay cut.
