+ - Why Does M$ Get a Free Pass on Malware?->

twitter writes "Carla Schroder of IT Management asks an obvious question, "Why Does Microsoft Get a Free Pass on Malware?"

It's a funny thing how Microsoft succeeds in getting their logo and the Windows logo plastered on everything — computers, advertising, and even other companies' ads. That "We recommend Windows Vista!" blurb is on every darned ad and product catalog that exists, it seems. Every word that falls from the mouths of Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer is dutifully recorded and reported. And yet the news media go all forgetful when they're reporting on yet another malware outbreak. The most recent example of this is the mass worm outbreak at our largest U.S. military base in Afghanistan.

When you dig into any W32 virus story you find the same thing Boycott Novell has answers about advertising. Boycott Novell is also doing a good job of tracking press manipulation [2], [3], [4], wikipedia editing and abuse of those who refuse to be manipulated. Carla, should also read this to know how personally M$ takes reporter manipulation. The net result of these efforts is massive censorship and a public that no longer trusts it's media."
