Why is that "almost certain"? It's not like Apple has some kind of special command over the laws of physics.

Agreed. LG messed it up but Apple has made its own share of gaffe in the past.

Also LG has been a long term partner with Apple for these kind of tasks. LG reportedly did a lot of engineering for the early iMacs while manufacturing them.

LG saved about a buck off the BOM by not shielding they're damn monitor (it's not difficult).

Quick question for anyone who owns a 5K iMac.

Does this same issue occur?

I don't own a 5K iMac but my guess is no, this issue does not occur.

So if it does not happen on 5K iMacs, Gruber is right whe he says:

Well the apple displays have aluminium frames so this is probably true.

Stroke! Stroke!:
I guess they took that Class C rating seriously: must be fucked up by interference but must not fuck up anything else.

Most normal people will try to block interference, not take it.

Is it just poor shielding on the cable? How about putting one of those donuts on the power cable?

Would covering the back with tinfoil solve the issue?
