Hey, WCVB-TV, you're an awesome news station, no doubt, but in a recent report on your program and article on your website you name-dropped G4 in the following way:

"Grainy video of teams placing the devices around the city was posted on the gaming network G4 as part of the national promotional campaign."

We're flattered. We really are. And the money would be nice. But while we did stream video of the installation of the devices on our website, and we have been reporting on every detail of the case, we're no more a part of a national promotional campaign than you are.

We admit, Aqua-Gate info has been showing up on our site and channel faster than it has been showing up on, say, yours, but that's not because we have any inside information. It's just because we're faster.

We'd also like to take exception to your reportage that the public has "decried" these marketing tactics. I've been noticing mostly people chuckling.
