I don't know that I'd be so quick as to call AppleInsider's reporting offensive either. If Mr. Cook is open about his orientation (as the article suggests), what reason is there for not including such information in a news article about him...?
The article (this AI piece) actually doesn't state that he is open about his orientation at all, quite the opposite really. This is all based on rumor and speculative comments by unnamed sources. Which makes this AI article a piece of bad journalism IMO. Mr Cook is entitled to be whatever he wants, it's his life after all, but nowhere it seems has HE
publicity stated his position. Therefore, I find it obnoxious that DED feels the need to "report" on speculative claims by what appears to be an unscrupulous organization. Whilst his article could appear to be neutral, because he is reporting what someone else said, there is no need to give any credence to this type of trash journalism. If Mr Cook had decided to comment in public then it would be different. Our standards continue to erode on a daily basis it seems. Journalists know to go to the source for information, clearly DED has not done that here.
