Microsoft Jack Defends Microsoft's Other Attack Dogs (Friend Helps a Friend)

Hyena



Summary: A pack of Microsoft hyenas serves Microsoft's recipes and then reacts as a group when someone from the pack gets denied

AS ROUGHLY DRAFTED MAGAZINE pointed out a few years ago, Rob Enderle and Daniel Lyons were cross-citing each other with Microsoft-sourced or Microsoft-inspired talking points about Microsoft or SCO. As revealed in the case of Maureen O'Gara [1, 2], both Microsoft and SCO do use journalists as their stooges with whom to attack other journalists and spread disinformation. As we have stated before, Microsoft's sockpuppet TurboHercules (Microsoft obviously uses them) also has this PR person called Carina Oliveri trying to control coverage by befriending journalists. It's a dirty business and part of an industry totaling close to a trillion dollars per year in the United States alone.



Microsoft/SCO recruited or assembled its share of flunkies to lie about the SCO case and one of those who participated in it was Daniel Lyons, who is now being rejected by Apple (and had his employer more or less embargoed too).

To Levy, "this is like hiring Rush Limbaugh as your White House correspondent" and expecting to get interviews. Lyons's "most notable professional accomplishment is a vicious satire of Apple."


The article is worth reading as whole. Lyons lied about the series of events, which ought to show just how dishonest he is. He admitted this. And guess who comes to his rescue? It's Microsoft Jack [1, 2, 3], who is spinning for Lyons. It's like they work as a group. As one person points out in the comments: "Pathetic story. Shows the bubble that journalists live in if this is considered news."

“There is nothing so bad but it can masquerade as moral”

--Walter Lippmann (American Journalist, 1889-1974)
