Kosner says that "Examiner.com is an affiliate of AEG Worldwide, a sprawling sports and entertainment marketing company, without much in the way of journalistic accountability."
But this seems to be a mistake. Examiner.com bills itself as a "dynamic entertainment, news and lifestyle network" written by "Examiners" who are "self-motivated independent contributors ... able to express through words and photos a deep expertise in a topic." As far as we can tell, the website does not have employees who are "technology reporters."
You can see the online list of "qualifications" to become an Examiner. Charitably, one could say the bar is set rather low.
Examiner.com is a division of Clarity Digital Group, LLC, wholly owned by The Anschutz Company, a Denver-based investment company controlled by billionaire Philip Anschutz, who also built AEG.
