Jobs Chides BusinessWeek Reporter for Wrong Story

Peter Burrows, BusinessWeek:

My posterior had hardly hit the couch for my post-keynote interview with Steve Jobs when he ribbed me: “Well, I guess your story looks pretty dumb.” He was talking about a story Ron Grover and I did earlier this month that suggested Apple would probably not be able to get Universal and Sony to support Apple’s new movie rental service.

I still stand behind that story. As I told Jobs, we had multiple reliable sources. But Jobs insists there was far less drama involved than we, and some other pubs, suggested.
