On run, starts blog

19 Nov, 2012

TheHinterlandJohnMcAfeeMcAfee starts a blog called The Hinterland, the same name of an upcoming graphic novel about McAfee by Essley. In one of the first posts he takes issue with Gizmodo’s writer Wise:

How did I end up as a murder suspect on the lam? The world press certainly has not helped. Autonomous and self-serving, the press does what it does best – sensationalize. And my character and the recent events of my life have been sensationalized to the max. Take Jeff Wise and his recent posts to Gizmodo as an example. Jeff has made a life work out of smearing my character. Beginning with Fast Company some two odd years ago and continuing non-stop through the present, he has gone beyond the call of journalistic duty to bring my dark side to the attention of the world. You might think that moral duty or a search for the truth has been driving him. But, sadly, this is not the case.
