After Molly and Tom were gracious enough to let David Pogue take up podcast time to defend himself and air his side of the story, he just came off as rude.
You could tell Pogue had an agenda to put Molly and Tom "in thier places." Even after professional apologies from the BOL hosts, Pogue continued to press his individual points against comments made last Friday. His behavior came off as petty.
Meanwhile, Molly and Tom had a lingering valid point on the perception of objectivity: Pogue DID receive a substantial service for free. That alone erases the perception of objectivity, and this issue still applies to Pogue. Tom and Molly purposely (and politely) deflected the accusation from Pogue and onto themselves, collectively. However, with the flair of a seasoned politician, Pogue would not address it as it applied to his situation.
My respect for David Pogue has diminished substantially ... for a second time.
