Colleagues at my former outlet, PC World magazine, have told me that
Editor-in-Chief Harry McCracken quit abruptly today because the
company’s new CEO, Colin Crawford, tried to kill a story about Apple
and Steve Jobs.
The piece, a whimsical article titled “Ten Things We Hate About
Apple,” was still in draft form when Crawford killed it. McCracken
said no way and walked after Crawford refused to compromise.
