I agree it is all about perspective. But if you just do a search for every story on iPhone 4 as this guy did in the video. It would be ALL stories on the iPhone 4, not just the ones that mention the antenna issue. So the comparison just don't add up. Much of the press covered the announcement, eventual release etc.
I am just not buying that the media somehow was picking on poor Apple and hyping this. If Apple had called a press conference 10 days into this issue instead of 22 days, much of this would have already gone away.
