Dan Lyons slams CNBC reporter over Jobs' health

Rumors of Steve Jobs' demise may have been exaggerated, but clearly, something was wrong. Fake Steve Jobs takes Jim Goldman to task for poor reporting.

As you've undoubtedly read by now, Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs is taking six months off to concentrate on getting healthy. The blogosphere has been abuzz with rumors for months, and some of the mainstream press bought in, while others have been in complete denial.

CNBC reporter Jim Goldman got the Steve Jobs story wrong from day 1, while outright mocking sources, specifically Gizmodo, suggesting that Jobs was sick.

Dan Lyons, aka Fake Steve Jobs, takes Goldman to task, starting at 3:33 minutes into this video. It's both amazing and painful to watch.
