Ignore the woman behind the curtain: I caught this on CNN's Inside Politics a couple of days ago and was waiting for the transcript to pop up so I could share it. The story was about a report on the number of women (not enough) on corporate boards and serving as corporate officers. It prompted the following quote.
KIM KELLY, PRESIDENT & COO, INSIGHT COMMUNICATIONS: I don't mean to be flip, but I did notice the report highlighted two companies that had neither women executives or women directors, NTL and Adelphia. And they are about the two biggest bankruptcies we have had this year.
WOODRUFF (voice-over): No one at today's public release of the report suggested women are more honest, but they did note that women tend to take their responsibilities more seriously, and:
Umm...yeah. Kim Kelly didn't at all suggest that women were more honest. Nope. What you just heard didn't really happen.
