I’m all for calling people out when the deserve it – not discluding me. I called myself out for Phandroid’s Live Blog Failure and more recently, our Official Cupcake hitting US article was admittedly premature since it was for Dev Phones only, although a consumer upgrade announcement came soon after. I won’t point fingers at others I’ve called out in the past but today I’m calling out Suzanne Choney from MSNBC.

suzanne-chomneyHere is the first paragraph from her article titled, “Palm Pre prepares to battle ‘iBerry’ juggernaut“:

For the first time in nearly two years, the iPhone faces a showdown with what could be a true iPhone challenger. It’s not a BlackBerry. It’s not an Android phone. It’s a Palm and it’s called the Pre.

For the first time in nearly two years? While acknowledging the existence of Android? That’s just nonsense. I tried to “X” out the tab in my browser… but it bothered me too much – and now here we stand/sit. The iPhone has one manufacturer. WebOS has one manufacturer. Android has…. forget it… I’m preaching to the choir.
