John Furrier’s timing is impeccable again – he just published the first ever podcast interview with Steve Forbes.
This goes out as the blogosphere is still exploding in anger over the Daniel Lyons article on blogs that is in the current print edition of the magazine. Shel Israel wrote an open letter to Forbes magazine yesterday that was beautifully written. In his post, Shel says:
I was embarrassed for both you and Forbes today, when I read your one-sided, fact-bashing diatribe. I would have expected this level of journalism to have come from other sources such as the New York Post or the online Guardian.
As far as the silliness of calling us a lynch mob, Daniel. My free advice to you is to be very grateful on a personal level that your charge is without merit.
John recorded the interview on Friday, just before the blog story broke. I would have loved to have heard Steve Forbe’s comments on the story but, alas, the timing was off by a matter of hours.
