Orbitz distinguished Mac users from PC users; Orbitz complains about WSJ

NBC Nightly New/Brian Williams went with a story about how Orbitz is serving up pricier hotel lists to those using Mac computers than those on PCs. Orbitz CEO Barney Harford was quoted on NBC.

The Wall Street Journal had broken the story, but Orbitz complained:

In a Tuesday tweet, Orbitz CEO Barney Harford said the Journal's "confusing headline" and subscription paywall that prevented non-subscribers from reading the whole story sent a "distorted message about @Orbitz Mac users recommendations. Editors need to fix."
