Second-guessing Jerry Yang’s shareholder speech, the GOP’s lame attempt at courting the young, who really owns speeches, and learning from Warren Harding
Tasteless speech of the month: British journalist Martin Bashir, famed for his interviews with Princess Diana and Michael Jackson, told a group of Asian-American journalists that he was “happy to be in the midst of so many Asian babes,” and also said, “In fact, I’m happy that the podium covers me from the waist down.” Bashir later apologized for his “moment of stupidity.”
The speech Jerry Yang should have given: Financial Times writer Richard Waters offers his version of the speech Yahoo! CEO Jerry Yang should have given to shareholders earlier this month. In part, Waters says that Yang should have taken the opportunity to resign, and to acknowledge Carl Icahn’s plans for revamping the faltering company.
