Example of controversy

On August 8 2006, developer X's game 'Generic' was covered by writer Y. In wich he/she spoke positively about this game. Writer Y has been friends with developer X since 2003 and are relatively close, something reflected in their tweets exchanges,[2] blogs or even past articles where they talk about living together, visiting each other or even working together before.[3] These connections weren't disclosed in the article.
