As far as I'm concerned the legitimate press owes us the truth. It's a kind of unstated contract they have with us. The contract of trustworthy reporting.

They have the power to move mountains, and they must abide by their own rules of at least trying to verify a story. And when they can't, it shouldn't be printed without them saying...the company couldn't be reached for verification of this...blah, blah.

In this case, she just printed a "fact". Intel is suing Rambus. She needs to be held accountable for telling us the truth. This wasn't a quote from Mischou... it was her stating an incorrect fact:

"At the same time--and this is the high risk part of the story--many companies, including Intel and Micron, are suing Rambus, challenging its claims of patent-violation."

As far as I'm concerned, Frances breached her contract of telling the truth and being trustworthy, with me.
She and NBC should be held accountable for false reporting.

BTW, I've heard it said that Dell makes its own motherboards, would they have to pay royalties to Rambus for those types of boards?
