In a recent case, a writer for the Australian magazine Zoo Weekly was recently fired from his position, and he claims that it was because he refused to bow to pressure from Rockstar Games to write a positive review for Red Dead Redemption. His employers, on the other hand, claim that he was fired for a number of reasons, not least of all the fact that he chose to post a section of one of his correspondences with Rockstar marketing staff on his Facebook page – correspondence which was supposed to be strictly confidential.
