While I was getting ready for BloggerCon, I got a call form a USA Today Journalist, who had his story angle all ready:
'So, you got fired for blogging?'
'No, it wasn't like that. I wrote an explanatory piece, why don't you read it?'
He wasn't interested in that, so I explained a bit more that Apple discourages employees from talking to the press, and that I had found new work through my blogging.
He managed to imply his original line in the story instead.
