Yahoo CEO says he didn’t mislead companyBy Michael Liedtke
SAN FRANCISCO — Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson says he didn’t provide the information that led the troubled Internet company to list a bogus college degree in his official biography. That’s according to a person familiar with the matter.
The person asked not to be identified because Thompson made the remarks in a private meeting Thursday with other Yahoo executives. His comments were first reported by Reuters.
Thompson assured his colleagues that he never misled Yahoo about his academic credentials.
Yahoo Inc. declined to comment.
It’s the first time that Thompson has explicitly denied lying to Yahoo about his educational record before or after the company hired him in January.
Thompson’s integrity has been under attack since last week when it was learned his bio included a computer science degree that he never received
