Link: Siri doesn’t hates abortions, it just hates you

Peter Cohen for The Loop:

In what is surely the most ridiculous, manufactured controversy in — well, at least 15 minutes — Apple has been accused of having a pro-life stance because Siri, the voice-based assistant built in to the iPhone 4S, is unable to locate nearby abortion clinics upon request. I won’t be linking to any of the relevant links, because they’re not worth your time, and I don’t want to give them traffic.

Regardless of my personal and professional relationships with Jim and Peter, this is why I love The Loop. They actually understand what the job of journalism is about. No bullshit “he said / she said” false equivalence. The failure to apply critical thinking to a story is the greatest failure of modern so-called “journalism”.
