Quote, unquote: He sucked. Did not.

"Although Jack is an extremely accomplished executive, I concluded that his leadership style and approach did not mesh with Time Inc. and Time Warner."
-- Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, explaining to staff why he fired Jack Griffin as CEO of Time Inc.
"My exit was clearly not about management style or results. I leave behind a first-rate team and wish them all the best of success."
-- Jack Griffin, responding after being ousted as Time Inc. CEO by Time Warner  CEO Jeff Bewkes after Griffin was only six months into the job
