Church, State and PCWorld

1: Draft (or edit) an article called “Ten Things We Hate About Apple”

2: Get a call from your business-guy CEO who likes getting calls from Steve Jobs – asking to kill the article

3: resign. editorial integrity is everything.

4: End up a hero on the web – including slashdot.

Fantastically well done to former PC World Editor in Chief Harry McCracken

Foolish publisher of the year awarded to heavy handed PC World CEO Colin Crawford. (no comments on his blog – I wonder why…)

If only other editors would follow Harry’s example. I’m thinking of those that run large TV cable networks in the USA. We really are very lucky here in New Zealand where editorial really is separated from business.
