PC World editor resigns over apparent ad pressureCNET:
Award-winning Editor-in-Chief Harry McCracken of PC World resigned Tuesday over disagreements with the magazine's publisher regarding stories critical of advertisers, according to sources.Good for Harry, who's a great guy and, evidently, has a lot of guts. Bad for PC World, which just became a heck of a lot less interesting. And bad, frankly, for Apple: It's insane desire to constantly control the messaging raises its ugly head so often these days (witness: Suing blogs, trying to prevent publication of "iCon," and so on) that the company just seems diabolical. That Crawford is an ex-Macworld guys speaks volumes, by the way. This whole thing is just sad.
