Submission + - Wired trying to bury Digg? Or after a good story?

thefickler writes: Bloggers and social news site aficionados are accusing Wired News of trying to damage social news site Digg, after a story appeared on Wired News in which the journalist claimed she bought "diggs" to make her ridiculous story "popular" on Digg.

Wired News is owned by CondéNet, which also owns Digg competitor reddit

A more likely scenario is that Wired was simply after an interesting story...
