Most startups don't have coverage from TC/VB/etc. Crunchbase listed around 90,000 companies at the moment, probably less than 5,000 of them have had coverage in a startup news source.

It's mostly recently funded companies that seem to be getting all the coverage. Self-funded or profitable - not so much.

Made me want to blog about it.


It is worth noting that Arrington had a history of investing in the very companies that he was covering. And had personal connections with many of the other investors who might invest.

Thus improved access to tech blogs can be considered one of the benefits of having well-connected investors.
