+ - Leaked: Microsoft Secret Dossier on Reporter

Submitted by BillGatesLoveChild
BillGatesLoveChild (1046184) writes "Microsoft's PR Agency accidentally send Wired Reporter Fred Vogelstein its secret dossier on him. The dossier shows how much effort Microsoft goes to in stage managing articles. Vogelstein said he felt downright weird reading it: It was "strange to see just how many resources are aligned against me when I write a story about Microsoft". The dossier is here with updates here and here.

Asher Moses of SMH.com.au points out the dossier doesn't bode well for Wired either, since it shows how much influence Microsoft has over its reporting. (Wired chose to run the piece, albeit underneath a Microsoft-Friendly one proclaiming "How Blogs Opened Up Microsoft".) Given the recent Press releases-cum-news on the X360 Elite ("We do not comment on rumors or speculation.. that's E-L-I-T-E") and the misleading Vista sales announcement, might we just as well be getting our news straight off Microsoft?"
