There are those who might say that Kara Swisher is a leftist Lesbian who, because she is married, to a female executive at google, has an inherent conflict of interest in reporting on their #1 competitor, nearly incessantly - yahoo. Did you see any other major media outlets report the breakdown in alibaba talks . . . swisher was the primary source quoting as usual, anonymous sources - - -other outlets pick that up and run with it. It's bad when the media relies constantly on anonymous sources such as those swisher cites . . .and is equally as horrifying but very believable that you can have such blatant conflict of interest in today's media . . .after all, web-based outlets are the new cable news - only one step below them.
Swisher gets her info from her lesbian wife - senior Google Exec who she's married too. Google has been behind a lot of the leaks through their channels and connections that lead to Swisher . . .some, many, mucho people might assume

OMG! Say it ain't so!
Well newbie, how long did it take for you to make that assumption? I doubt that anyone on this message board since forever did not know that tidbit you just threw out. As to the association of the parties you have named in your post please note the disclosure at ATD. That association factoid is made very clear. Perhaps you might in the future post something of interest on the board; it would be refreshing as so many others no longer do.
anything goes these days. journalism is not what is used to be defined as. it's entertainment first and so it's all about scandal, negative stuff, finding skeletons that you can be the first to post online about. the days of quality, credible news focused journalism are over. is swisher in the pocket of google, news corp, or whoever - who knows - but in a lot of people's opinion, she is the typical new blood of bad journalism. i have noticed how she breaks ever negative story on yahoo but can't remember anything that she's broke that has moved the stock UP and not DOWN! the times broke the recent 'story' about discussions being back on with Asia. everyone knew they were never truly off, but swisher reported it as such.
the more i read about Kara Swisher, the more somethings seems faulty here. Yes, you have a lesbian who is married to a senior google executive but yet she claims to not have any say in her partner's finances . . .right. Agree on what other poster said . . .this underscores that Gay or Lesbian Marriage is, to many, about sharing the same bed vs. sharing the household duties and finances. . . .Conflict of interest - sure. Ethically challenged, I'd say so . . .News Corp owned website that Swisher walks for . . .no comment but this is the same company that regularly tapped phones, bribed people, etc . . .
My bigger problem are the Yahoo loudmouthes that go crying to her when things don't go their way.
I keep hearing about all these "talented" execs that leave.....the same ones that were around when the company was sinking.
