PC World editor back in charge

by Paul Jay, CBC News online

In a reversal of fortune, Harry McCracken has returned to PC World as editor-in-chief of the magazine and Colin Crawford, the CEO, has been moved to a new position within the organization at IDG (owner of the publication).

As we wrote earlier this week, McCracken reportedly left the magazine after 12 years over an article entitled "Ten Things We Hate About Apple", which the magazine eventually published.

The news that Crawford is out at PC World means a discovery of ours makes a whole lot more sense. As we pointed out on Tuesday, Crawford's response concerning McCracken's departure on his personal blog appeared to have been removed, though it is cached here.

Mystery solved, and chalk up a point for editorial control. Though, as many have pointed out, the actual article at the heart of the controversy was fairly lame.
