John Gruber, from the Daring Fireball blog, was asked by Apple to criticize Dan Lyons' piece, "Apple's Rotten Response", so as to finally put an end to the iPhone 4 antenna saga.

In his article, Lyons writes: This is classic Apple behavior. No matter what the whole world can see with its own eyes, just keep saying that it isn't true, and maybe, eventually, everyone will believe you. By refusing to acknowledge the problem, Jobs just reinforced the image of Apple as a company that is in deep denial and unable to admit a mistake -- a company that has for so long been able to bend reality to suit its needs that it now has lost touch with reality itself.

But, asks Gruber, how do you write a scathing response when you agree with the criticism that Apple really should have acknowledged reality?
