Green Goblin once went to the Daily Globe to obtain additional information on Spider-Man. However, in an effort to protect everyone the Green Goblin was threatening, a young man who worked there said that he was Spider-Man. The Green Goblin tested the boy's claim by tossing him out of a window, with the real Spider-Man saving him just in time for Goblin to escape.
Edward Brock used to work for the Daily Globe up until he started writing stories about the Sin-Eater murders. Eddie soon started publish interviews he had with the Sin-Eater and protecting his identity under the First Amendment. However, with the stories he wrote, came pressure from authorities to reveal the Sin-Eater's identity.
Eventually, Brock caved and wrote a story detailing the Sin-Eater's real name. The Daily Globe newspaper the story was printed in sold out very fast, however it was not long before Spider-Man caught the real Sin-Eater, revealing Eddie's story about the interview and his identity he printed in the paper to be false. The identity of the Sin-Eater was Detective Stan Carter, while the man Brock had been interviewing was actually a compulsive confessor.
The Daily Globe was embarrassed, as was Eddie when he was fired by the Globe and laughed at by his fellow journalists.
This unfortunate turn of events began a deep hate that Eddie started to develop towards Spider-Man that would lead him into becoming the first host of the Venom symbiote, vowing to kill Spider-Man for ruining his life.
