what is the generally policy of citing stories or rumors on macrumors? If a statement is made (say by the NYT) but then is talked about in gizmodo in a written piece, i find macrumors tends to include the story and then link to gizmodo although the original news is from apple (via NYT). Another example is with: Google Claims That Apple Did Reject Google Voice iPhone Application [Updated] and more specifically the Update: Silicon Alley Insider reports that Apple has issued a statement reiterating its contention that the Google Voice iPhone application has not been rejected. But Silicon Alley Insider simply got their story from Reuters who got their story from calling the company. Why not just cite the original source (the company) and why include the whole silicon alley insider aspect to it? It makes it sound like Silicon Alley Insider did the work and called apple but thats not true. Why not just say.. Update: Apple spokeswoman confims apple didn't reject ... instead of Update: Silicon Alley Reporter reported Apple Spokeswoman confirm apple didnt reject. granted I am using a few data sources where it tells me apple spokeswoman commented to reuters. Maybe you dont have access to that..but i just felt its a little misleading. or maybe your policy is to quote wherever you are reading the news even thought that news might be originally from somewhere else. i'm just curious.
