The reason Apple doesn’t talk to: Jason D. O’Grady, ZDNet.

Jason D. O’Grady of ZDnet has a new post out this morning, complaining about Apple PR not answering his emails, calls, etc.

He paints a rather bleak picture for bloggers/journalists who have, at one point or another, fallen out of grace at Apple.

If you dare to write an unflattering piece about Apple or — heaven forbid – post a rumor you’re almost guaranteed to lose your access to Apple. I know this firsthand because I’m the poster child of Apple’s PR blacklist.

I won’t really get into his bogus arguments, because there’s not a single blogger or journalist that hasn’t posted negative stuff about Apple, and they still have “access” to Apple, and receive invitations to their events. I’m not saying that O’Grady isn’t important enough (whatever that means) for Apple to return his calls either.

What I am saying though is that the reason Apple doesn’t respond to these kinds of call-outs is really simple:

Apple doesn’t rush out every time someone decides to write a piece about them “screwing up”. They read, think about, work on, fix it first. Then, and only then, will they speak. Which seems like it would be a good idea for some “journalists” too.
