Yahoo CEO apologizes, but doesn’t comment on how or why it happened.
“I want you to know how deeply I regret how this issue has affected the company and all of you,” Thompson said in a memo obtained by CNN. “We have all been working very hard to move the company forward, and this has had the opposite effect. For that, I take full responsibility, and I want to apologize to you.”
At his position, it doesn’t matter if he actually got a CS degree or not, but he should still be fired.
His earlier jobs after graduation may have been obtained because of this lie, so it’s like a chain reaction that ultimately landed him CEO at Yahoo. If he started off honest, he may not be where he is now
