This isn't about any single individual, though he certainly did not contribute positively to the situation.

Schmidt's response was no better. Are we to imagine he would not have sent the same sternly worded memo to Jobs had the roles been reversed?

IIRC this report fits in with earlier stories which reported that Jobs was active in pushing for no-hire agreements to be set up in the first place. That does make him look worse than Schmidt, who afaik hasn't (yet?) been revealed as an initiator. Though neither man looks like an oil painting now.
