According to Business Insider, the board of Yahoo went out of its way to make sure news about Marissa Mayer being named the company's new C.E.O. didn't break with Kara Swisher, the wry and aggressive AllThingsD reporter whose sources within the struggling web behemoth are leakier than a faucet.
Instead, it appeared that Yahoo placed the exclusive with Andrew Ross Sorkin of The New York Times.
Swisher's initial silence on the matter did not go unnoticed:
Still nothing from @karaswisher— Lauren Indvik ★ (@laureni) July 16, 2012
"FYI, I permanently live in the air vent above your office, and I ain’t going anywhere, no matter who the CEO of Yahoo is, and no matter what bare-knuckled assistant — Hey, Judy! Hi, Roxie! — is deployed to try [and] kill me."
