Clamming Up in Redmond December 22, 2005

Posted by David Card in Media.

The most surprising thing about this Washington Post story, which is, as a Microsoft flak characterizes it “a rehash of stories previously published in other publications,” is that Microsoft refused to offer up an exec to respond.

    Microsoft bristles at this kind of talk and refused to make a top executive available for this story.

I am shocked. One things Microsoft has done best over the years is manage its commentariat brainwashing information exchange. Microsoft knows that the best way to get its vision across is to expose the brains of its very bright senior managers via access. (Ever tried to talk to Google? Or Yahoo?)

Redmond must be really PO’d at the way the AOL-Google deal came out.
