"These people" FTW!

Freshly-ousted Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz gave an exclusive interview to Fortune‘s Patricia Sellers. With great candor, Ms. Bartz recounts both the lawyer-approved cellphone call from chairman Roy Bostock informing her she was axed (“I said, ‘Roy, I think that’s a script. Why don’t you have the balls to tell me yourself?’”) and her motivation behind breaking the news by dashing off an email to all 14,000 of Yahoo’s employees.  Ms. Bartz summarized her feelings on the matter thusly, “These people fucked me over.”

The real question is: How long before this headline Carol Bartz exclusive: Yahoo ‘f—ed me over” eclipses this one Carol Bartz to Michael Arrington: “F*ck Off” in the Google search results?
