Reuters should fire Scott Hillis right now

Reuters.com - No Spin. No Agenda. Just the Facts. As they happen.

CORRECTED - Intel touts power of new laptop chip

Wed Dec 14, 2005 01:44 PM ET In Dec. 13 SAN FRANCISCO story headlined "Intel touts power of new laptop chip," please read in 12th paragraph ... has one-upped Intel ... instead of ... is looking to one-up Intel next year ... (corrects to show AMD has already released a 64-bit laptop chip).

Original was here.

Reuters.com, like all news media, lives by reputation of being true to the facts.

If Scott Hillis lied, he should be fired, no question about it.

If Scott Hillis hadn't seen or heard the word "Turion 64", which had been all over the place since Q2 (it was even over the sky of San Francisco), then he should also be fired, Reuters can't have such low quality IT reporters spewing misinfo.

If Scott Hillis had seen or heard the word "Turion 64", but did not realize "64" means 64 bit, then he should be fired too, because he is too dumb.

Either way, Scott Hillis should be fired right now.

If Reuters does not fire Scott Hillis, then Reuters should remove its mantra and admit that it is OK to lie or its reports are low quality or some of its reporters are dumb.

Well, I don't know about that story, but I was suprised to see a story by Scott, about Entropia Universe, where he failed to mention that it is really a casino disguised as an online game. It is not good journalism to perpetuate such deception, unless of course, they paid him well to ignore the truth.
