Forbes V. The Free Market

When Apple struck a "gay cure" app off of its store list, most people were glad they'd done the right thing and sent the homophobic snake-oil peddlers packing. But not Victoria Pynchon at Forbes.

Pynchon objects to Apple becoming our "national gatekeeper" by controlling what content goes out on their bit of the Web. Hmm... I can't help thinking it's ironic of Forbes to be advocating against the freedom of business and pushing the notion that Apple should somehow be forced to carry a product that they and the majority of their customers find offensive. Oh, I get it: the free market should only be free if you're not a big ol' lefty corp like Apple or Google. Sorry. My bad.
