Past the shelf life? Yves has a good example of why:
What gets me so worked up is The Observer's total lack of journalistic integrity in this case. The Fourth Estate has a responsibility to the general public to report the truth. To the extent it can enrich investors, corporate executives have a responsibility to obfuscate the truth. Selling 20 column inches on the front page directly to BofA's PR dept. would be less harmful than what was done here. Calling this piece an "interview" suggests the reporters did their duty to ask tough questions and filter fact from corporate fiction. But they did nothing of the sort. The result is that readers are badly misled.
