Buzzfeed : Apple CEO Tim Cook Is Calling For Bloomberg To Retract Its Chinese Spy Chip Story

“I feel they should retract their story. There is no truth in their story about Apple. They need to do that right thing.”

Egg. Meet Bloomberg’s Face 🤝

More seriously, this is looking like a major fail for Bloomberg, who put so much effort in promoting this peice. I think it highlights the dangers of well-meaning reporters getting it so wrong, when they clearly don’t fully understand the subject matter. This type of thing happens in the Scientific world regularly and is hard to remedy after the horse has bolted. But fundamentally, either Apple and its contemporaries, the governments of the USA and the UK are all lying, or, Bloomberg has just got this plain wrong. There’s no shame in that, but I believe they should admit that.
