Seems like Jim Buckmaster wasn’t happy with the way Amber Lyon interviewed their founder Craig Newmark. According to Jim Buckmaster Amber ambushed Craig with surprised questions about topics which Craig wasn’t prepared to answer. He was supposed to be interviewed for his talk on veteran’s affairs which happened last May 20.
Jim’s feisty post was created after Amber Lyon requested to set up an interview with the company’s spokesperson or Jim himself. Jim claimed that Craig though he is the founder his is no longer in management and he is not the company’s spokesperson. And that it was not fair to ambush their semi-retired founder Craig Newmark with questions he doesn’t have a clear idea or he hasn’t prepared for. What makes Jim so mad is that the network was able to air the “misleading” piece a number of times. The CEO has no problems with the network but he was only attacking Amber Lyon.
