    BusinessWeek article keeps moving up to the top of the list on Yahoo Finance...

    This BusinessWeek article dated March 30, 2009, 12:01AM EST.....

    Serious Threats to Sirius Radio
    Web outfits like Pandora, Foneshow, Stitcher, and Slacker broadcast portable and mobile content that makes Sirius look overpriced and stodgy
    By Olga Kharif

    ........keeps moving up to the top of the list on Yahoo Finance.

    http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=SIRI

    The date and time next to the article keeps changing to make the article seem as if it was just released. It first showed Monday 12:01am, then Monday 5:08pm, and now Tuesday 12:46am.....

    Nothing has changed in the article and there have been no updates or corrections noted. This isn't the first time I have seen this type of thing with negative BusinessWeek articles about SIRI - I have seen negative stories from them that were weeks old just pop up at the top of the Yahoo Finance news list as if they were new.

    Who is responsible for this and why?

    Is it someone within Yahoo or BusinessWeek that has an agenda?

    Is someone getting whores and drugs to pull this off?

    Is someone trying to manipulate the SIRI news flow?

    Demian-

    Not only do they show "updated" Businessweek articles on Yahoo.com, but over the past year there have been so-called "new articles". Then, when you click through to the article, the date of article is about 6 months or so ago. If this had happened once, I would think that this was a simple mistake. But this posting of outdated article has happened repeatedly.

    One only wonders who is in charge of this.

    Yes, every time a "unsophsicated" Sirus stockholder sells because of that bs, they win. They dont care and yes its very purposeful. Ive noticed that as well. When you see blood, they will take it. Yesterdays takedown attempt, day 2. When common sense returns to Sirius stockholders, it will go back up again.

    Mcgraw Hill owns BusinessWeek and S&P...

    Isn't Sirius located in the Mcgraw Hill building?

    Couldn't Sirius just walk down the hall and sort this out?
