Integrität von (IT-)Redakteuren
… PC World Editor in Chief Harry McCracken has resigned. The reason he resigned—the company’s CEO killing a story entitled „Ten Things We Hate About Apple”—shows how the magazine’s editorial is fighting hard to keep its integrity, and that McCracken’s departure shows that he’s not going to put up with this crap.
You see, CEO Crawford apparently told editors that their reviews and articles were too critical of the vendors—the same vendors who advertise in their magazine. Hence, the order came down that they „had to start being nicer to advertisers.”
… according to Wired, the newly minted CEO of PC World, Colin Crawford, used to be CEO of MacWorld. When Colin was at his former job, Steve Jobs would call him up any time the Apple CEO had a problem with a story MacWorld was working on. The two mags, MacWorld and PC World, are owned by the parent company IDG.
