1. Would you give up your sources if it came down to it? I hope not but when it is a fight for survival you never know. Maybe it'll end up being 'Apology for the reporting vs Outing the sources and playing the blame game'
2. I recall there have been incidents where stocks have been manipulated via sensationalist rumors. I am not saying that you did that or that is even the situation here but wouldn't you think that your initial report would influence prospects for this company? Do you feel you hurt the company with this news and should apologize (once the air clears perhaps?)
All this being said, someone has to report. There are times you will be right and there will be times you will be wrong. But there will always have to be someone to break the news and so don't let this setback take away the courage of journalism that you provide here (okay a little too melodramatic but you know what I mean). Just don't get super crazy paranoid cautious with your reporting in the future.

@nathanielmott @dawizard Don't use it doesn't mean I can't have an opinion about it. These are free products, so it shouldn't really 'affect' anyone because you choose to use them, no one is forcing you. You wrote a big rant about how incompetent Instagram video is and emphasized how brilliant Vine is, which is fair enough but I don't think it affects you in any way either other than coming out in strong defense of Vine.
I don't hate Vine, this is just my reaction at seeing such a strong negative response to InstaVideo. My point was that Instagram Video should get a fair chance, I would have said the same thing had it been any other company.
The only thing I do agree are the sentiments that there is absolutely nothing Innovative about it. It cloned Vine and I can see how some people may be pissed off about it and find nothing good about it either.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Narcissism in motion: Instagram’s new video features are a vanity mirror, not a communications tool
This post is sponsored by Vine and Vine fanboys....
I don't understand the hate (albeit a strong term) for a product which was rolled out literally hours ago and is probably not firing on all cylinders just yet (i.e. buggy) but have you seen the junk that gets published on Vine? Apparently there is a lot of crap on Vine too, without filters etc, it'll be everywhere, any new tools or existing tool. And to call it a tool for communication and Instagram a vanity piece is starting to sound like an Apple vs MS debate where MS (Instagram) has added a lot more features/frills but Apple fanboys love the simplicity and will never like Instagram.
Disclaimer - I don't use either. I am a consumer of Vines though through Twitterati. Give it some time, I think instagram will settledown. Give it some time and then bring out the pitchforks.
"$45 Heist"? Sorry pando but these typos are starting to reflect the quality of work at PandoDaily (Point being this is not the only time you have messed up the headline). I hate being this cynical but just disappointed.

@Praveen Mittal And I once again got link-baited by PandoDaily having read this article earlier via their twitter feed. This time the twitter feed said "EXPLAINER:blah blah blah for Startups"...figured it was some more intelligent reporting but turns out a link to the same article as earlier. I can bet twitter or Sarah Lacy will come up with yet another deviation of the Title and link bait this. Getting really tired of Pando's link-baitiness...whatever that is.

@fengtality Seriously WTF...Pando is turning into a link bait trollish articles collection or so it seems sometimes....I find it amusing how many links are pushed out via Twitter with gimmicky catch phrases and different kinds. I don't know how many times I have clicked on the link to the same article more than once just with these different catchy headlines pushed out every few hours. Sneaky, sleazy, whatever. But I digress....off to sleep now. Will catch up with Pando tomm.

Sounds like you are saying Investors have a gambling problem and they are afraid to lose. They should not be gambling across different games with varying payouts and lower risk and instead be focused on high stakes at a few casinos which have the potential to make them big winners. Albeit, gambling is perhaps a different type of risk but you know what I mean...?

I agree with some of the sentiments. Change is never easy, I like the general UI and feel of the site. BUT the larger font size and a lot more scrolling AND the fixed banner at the top literally reduces my viewing space of just half the browser width (and on my 13" mac it looks really bad, reminds me of 90's) . And the ticker on the right is also consuming a good amount of space away from the rest of the viewing area.
So my problem is really not with the structure or UI but more so with the readability/spacing here. Get rid of the fixed banner at the top and we are even.
Please take a look at the site using smaller sized laptops - 11-13" (I know the main audience is probably the 15-17" beasts from Dell....just kidding)

@paulcarr w00t! I will have to give it a shot. Do you track how many RSS subscribers are out there? It feels like a cave-man technology now but it is pretty darn solid and I love reading articles out there. Perhaps because it is easier to do that at work :D
