Yahoo PR just called to complain that our article — “Cranky shareholders blast Yahoo” — misrepresented the “tone” of the company’s shareholder meeting.
Direct quote from shareholder: “The debacle over the past few months is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.”
S’rly? That has a tone other than cranky?
Even better bit: The rep said we didn’t get the vibe right because we weren’t in the room.
From AP’s coverage of the meeting: “The Associated Press monitored Yahoo’s meeting through a webcast because the company banned media from the gathering held at a Santa Clara hotel.” -Stacy (burying head in hands)
