I'm confused. At what point does he provide evidence that Microsoft is paying Pachter?

Microsoft owning Viacom that owns the guys that made game trailers that has Michael Pachter. He says that this is easily goggled.

That still doesn't prove anything. Pachter is an analyst at Wedbush Securities. He gets pretty much all of his money from them, as that is where he works. Pach Attack is a small thing he does on the side.
You also have to keep in mind that there are plenty of people on Gametrailers that did not like what Microsoft was doing at all. Look at Marcus Beer and, to a lesser extent, Kyle Bosman. If GT was "payed off by Microsoft" they'd be singing their praises to the moon.

Microsoft does not own Viacom. They struck an advertising deal back in 2007 to distribute Viacom properties through the LIVE marketplace in exchange for Viacom giving its unsold ad space to Microsoft.

"Follow the money man! It's all there!"

Yeah, I'm not clicking that link. From what I've seen of Patcher even though I don't always agree with him he's fairly reasonable. Most of the time what he says follows a fairly strong logic and he can argue his case fairly well. Ontop of that I watched his post-E3 analysis bit and he was hardly being kind to Microsoft. All he said then was that Sony put the knife in Microsoft and that Microsoft was probably too proud to back peddle although they should. All he said about Nintendo was that they weren't even trying to compete.

Things that I think any reasonable person said post-E3.... and he was actually wrong about Microsoft

For those who don't know how business works: conspiracies happen all the time, and I do mean all the time. Never heard of corporate takeovers for example?

I don't know what accent he's using...is he using the "high school dropout trash" accent?
Whatever it is, it doesn't sound like anything a college graduate would use, or target any consumer of expert analysis.

As for Geoff Keighley: I'll defend him here. He's the guy that got Don Mattrick to leave MS in shame for exposing his ignorance all over the internet. So, if he was really a Microsoft spinner, he would not have made his "colleague" look so stupid.
