Fake Steve Jobs outed on purpose?

That’s Valleywag‘s snarky take on the New York Times’ outing of a Forbes editor as author of the Secret Diary of Steve Jobs.

Valleywag questioned whether the outing was nudged along to promote an upcoming book.

I wonder if the outing is payback for the satirical blog’s particularly sharp (and relatively unfunny …) jabs at the New York Times lately.

Payback or not, the blog seems to go off track when it does insidery media critiques. Would Steve Jobs bother to parse the coverage of Microsoft’s financial analyst meeting?
