It’s been about a week since talking head Jason Calacanis unleashed his anti-Apple tirade on the masses, an article overflowing with mistakes, inconsistencies, and shockingly moronic reasoning. Since then, Calacanis’ article has been debunked, refuted, and challenged quite nimbly by a variety of folks more intellectually capable than Calacanis himself.
I would have imagined that Calacanis read some of these responses, but a recent tweet indicates otherwise, and if anything, points out how self-important Calacanis considers himself to be.
In a tweet posted this past Thursday, Calacanis writes:
The Case Against Apple talked about on the excellent MacBreak Weekly http://twit.tv/mbw153 interestingly, CNBC, CNN, NYTimes haven’t discssd
Apparently Calacanis views his article as a solid jumping off point for intellectual discussion about Apple, so much so that he’s genuinely surprised that media outlets like CNBC, CNN, and the NY Times haven’t joined in on the fracas. Is this guy for real? Is he so self-delusional that he thinks his surprisingly uninformed ramblings are worthy of being mentioned on stages as large as CNN and the NY Times? Did he only read comments which praised his work, and ignore comments and responses which clearly show the logical fallacies in his writing?
But the kicker is, even if Calacanis wrote a spot-on article about Apple and its app store policies, how arrogant and self-involved do you have to be to express genuine disbelief that your opinions aren’t being picked up and discussed by the most well-known and influential media outlets in the country?
