Dumbest Moments in Business 2009...Midyear Edition

by Fortune Staff
Wednesday, July 1, 2009provided by

1. GM Partners With Segway
2. Tropicana's Botched Redesign
3. KFC Runs Out of Chicken
4. John Thain's $35,000 'Commode on Legs'
5. SEC Bars Madoff...Just in Time!
6. Not-So-Stressful Stress Tests
7. Yankees' $200,000 Seats
8. U.S. Debt is 'Safe.' Seriously. Stop Laughing
9. Geithner gives few details, tanks the market
10. Obama's spending cuts...a ways to go


I have a problem with this.

First while I thought the GM Segway issue was something that might not see the light of day, it also came out when everyone was crying that the car companies did not have a smart car here in the US.

HMMMM?

Second does not Fortune have articles about Madoff and his brilliance.

HMMMM?

Third that numbers 8 & 9 are both about Giethner, I guess they wanted to not use his name twice in the titles, it may seem like they were targeting someone or an administration.

HMMMM?

And lastly, Fortune had articles just like the issue they bring up about Obama, where they recommend cutting your newpaper and $5 coffee's to save money.

HMMMM?
