Daring Fireball: Regarding the WSJ’s Report That Steve Jobs Had a Liver Transplant
This is such a great breakdown on this story. Not that I would expect any less from Gruber. Here is my take on what happened:
- WSJ gets a tip from hospital.
- WSJ confirms with multiple sources and records from hospital.
- WSJ goes to Apple with story.
- Apple makes deal for exclusive if WSJ does not source and times release to print per Apple’s direction.
This is the only thing that makes sense to me.
