Dvorak Uses Mac Users: Petition To Fire John C Dvorak & Call To All Websites Not To Report His Stories
On Friday a very alarming video was posted to the internet; John C. Dvorak admitting on camera that he often made up stories just to incite Mac Users to respond and to bump up hit totals artificially.
He explains how he basically writes stories like Mad Libs, filling in inflammatory and sometimes untrue but educated statements just to be linked all around the internet.
For years, this well respected (by those who care not to really know him) reporter has defamed and in my opinion hurt Apple severely. Now he admits that he has (almost maliciously) conspired to do so.
PC Magazine should fire him immediately and I sincerely hope that this video exposes him enough to the public at large that no one will report or even comment on his news stories again. PERIOD!
I'll start a petitiononline petition soon and post here ... I hope all of you will sign it.
