Dan Lyons muzzled

Has Newsweek thrown the gag around Dan Lyons?

Dan Lyons aka Fake Steve Jobs is well known for his abrasive style posts where no-one is immune from his sarcastic wit that can cut to the bone at times. All the time he was working at Forbes and writing under his FSJ persona the world was treated to some great writing. Now though with him working for Newsweek things seem to have changed and not for the better.

Case in point was a post he wrote yesterday about the ouster of Jerry Yang that was a great reminder of why his Fake Steve Jobs blog became as famous as it did. Unfortunately his masters at Newsweek didn’t seem to be in agreement and as a result his Jerry Yang out post has turned into a 404 page
