Scott Rosenberg: Do you kick Yahoo?

Excellent Salon piece by Scott Rosenberg about Yahoo and the negativitiy feeding frenzy: "Yahoo's news triggered a media frenzy of Yahoo-whipping utterly out of proportion to the company's state. 'Yahoo struggles to survive,' the company's hometown paper, the San Jose Mercury News, declared in its lead headline -- as though Yahoo were some underfunded, two-bit e-commerce outfit that just discovered people won't buy cat litter online." And: "Plainly, the market's pundits were way off a year ago, at the pinnacle of Net stock mania; so why should we put any more stock in them now? Their downside is looking just as insane as their upside." Right on.
