Just How Did Apple “Journalism” Get This Bad?

Ian Betteridge, for Macgasm:1

By those standards, David Gewirtz’s piece over at ZDNet entitled “iOS developers abandoning sinking Apple mothership: biggest drop ever” isn’t just bad journalism. It’s beyond that. It’s anti-journalism. Where journalism is about fact, Gewirtz brings us speculation. Where journalism adds context to make things clearer, Gewirtz removes it in order to make things more difficult to understand.

Skewered.


  1. This is a terrible name for a website. Never include the suffix “-gasm” where it doesn’t belong, like on a tech site. ↩︎
