The WSJ is back to their link bait ways with another Verizon iPhone rumor. I will not even call it a story.  The latest rumor they posted is here  (Yeah link bait worked again for them).  What I think is most frustrating about this latest rumor is that it is just a rehash of a rumor the same "reporters" spread back in the spring.  While the internets never forget it does appear WSJ editors do.  

But the real reason to call total BS on this is the lack of any real sources. That is unless you count "people familiar with the matter" or "these people" or "people briefed on the phone" or "One person familiar" or "people briefed on the matter" and "a person familiar with the matter". With harding hitting fact check journalism like that the WSJ must be proud to have their name linked to this BS.

Sorry for the tone and temper of this post - but come on WSJ it was bad enough the first time you brought up this rumor but to completely rehash it and just update the dates is plain lazy.

  • TOTALLY AGREE... I was so annoyed with this and it got tweeted and re-tweeted all day that day so I was hoping you would comment on it. LG, Nashville

  • I totally agree... i'm going to write an article and send it to every major publication about apple and microsoft merging! i'll even site "people that have been briefed" just to see if it gets published... that would be soo funny!
