Submission + - Is Wired Trying to Kill Digg?

ClamIAm writes: "Wired's latest article about Digg is interesting. But with the parent company of Wired also owning reddit, are there hidden motivations behind it? Michael Arrington of TechCrunch thinks so, and suggests that Digg sue Wired. From the article:

Reddit was acquired in late October. By December, Wired had predicted the fall of Digg, saying "Digg Becomes the New Friendster" without disclosing that they were a sister company to a competitor. .... Today Wired takes another, more elaborate shot at Digg. In a piece of investigative journalism, Wired reporter Annalee Newitz used a service called User/Submitter that pays people to Digg a story, which resulted in it getting to the home page of Digg.
