Yang Yanked from Yahoo?

Jerry Yang resigned this week as CEO of Yahoo, but given the collapse in stock price and fall in market share -- as well as the bungled deal with Microsoft -- many wonder if Yang was yanked.

Yang may have been heckled by investors and the financial press, but let's not forget his accomplishments. He co-founded Yahoo a decade-and-a-half ago while in college and built it into a huge brand and a site with many innovative (at least, at the time they were launched) services like Yahoo Mail.

I'd take 1 percent of Yang's success and be happy.
