Yahoo Puts $1,000 Bounty On Employees Who Leak Info to the Press
New Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz wants to crack down on company employees who are leaking information to the press — and Bartz is ponying up the first $1,000 in a "weekly bounty" to track them down.
But it's hard not to see the irony of this information being reported by the Wall Street Journal after they obtained a "leaked copy of the email".
In what's becoming a weekly, company-wide email, new Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz demanded again last Friday that employees stop leaking to the press.
Someone emailed Carol's first company email to AllThingsD and in Friday's missive, the CEO wrote: "I hope whoever did it, feels bad enough to come forward and resign."
"Maybe we should have a weekly bounty on such people. I will throw in the first thousand dollars," Carol wrote in another leaked copy of the email, obtained by the Wall Street Journal.
