Reading comments from folks who couldn't even get a job in Apple Engineering demeaning this guys credentials is what makes AI truly a place of humor.

We're a hero-obsessed culture. The myth of the lone genius. Those who say Steve Jobs just took credit for others people's accomplishments need to have a conversation with those who proclaim Apple is doomed without Steve. He was either riding Woz's coattails (what the Slashdotters believe), or the lynchpin that make Apple work (the mainstream press).
The truth has to be between those two extremes. One thing the press and media people do is create heroes and myths.

Well put and people like to have villains too. As soon as Scott's leaving was announced, the agenda was to simplify everything wrong and tie it to his character - skeuomorphic UIs and faulty maps and how Jony Ive was the hero character to counter him.
It won't stop happening because there's some natural reaction that takes over when we hear drama vs news. Part of what drives it is our inability and lack of desire to access all of the information relating to any particular scenario so the highlights get taken and the gaps are filled in to prop up the story.
