Apple "Colleagues at my former outlet, PC World magazine, have told me that Editor-in-Chief Harry McCracken quit abruptly today because the company's new CEO, Colin Crawford, tried to kill a story about Apple and Steve Jobs. The piece, a whimsical article titled 'Ten Things We Hate About Apple', was still in draft form when Crawford killed it. McCracken said no way and walked after Crawford refused to compromise. Apparently Crawford also told editors that product reviews in the magazine were too critical of vendors, especially ones who advertise in the magazine, and that they had to start being nicer to advertisers."

Yeah, ditto. I am also a guitar player. A geek guitar, weird combo, I know. Guitars that had they been reviewed 10 years ago as having shoddy fretwork, large gaps in neck pockets, sloppy gluework for set-necks, mis-aligned pole pieces for pickups, etc are now reviewed as being "some minor cosmetics flaws, but overall a fantastic value!"

It happens in all industries, unfortunately.
