NYT Quotes Tuck Professor, Refers to “Dartmouth University”

You just don’t like to see this: in an article about the faltering leadership of BP chief executive Tony Hayward, the New York Times quotes distinguished professor Sydney Finkelstein at “Dartmouth University’s Tuck School of Business:”

“People want to know someone is in charge, that the right person is there, but someone who says the stuff Hayward has said doesn’t engender confidence,” said Sydney Finkelstein, a professor of strategy and business at Dartmouth University’s Tuck School of Business. “We understand he is overwhelmed, but that also might suggest he’s not the right man for the job.”

The quality of writing and editing at the NYT continues to demonstrate why the Old Gray Lady has been obliged to sell herself to Carlos Slim.
