A month ago I took Forbes and Dan Lyons (aka Fake Steve Jobs) to task for his articles about SCO that turned out to be profoundly misguided.
To his credit, he has admitted that he got it wrong. I admire him for that.
The part that still bothers me is that his apology is “I got it wrong.” Reporters are supposed to report, aren’t they? While Lyons might be off the hook for me, I still wonder why Forbes feels the need to be a journal of opinion rather than reporting.
