I’m probably being to hard on this gal from Yahoo! Style who carries the title of news editor. But I think she’s an idiot. Or maybe just an overworked incompetent. I’d expect that an adult being paid to be a “news editor” would have some basic knowledge of finances. I’d expect that she’d know that one’s net worth is not the same as one’s income. So, in an article about the richest people in the United States, she claims that Christy Walton has an income of $30.2 billion:
She does not. That is her net worth.
But worse than that, is this claim about Steve Jobs’ widow:
Mr. Jobs’ widow is not Alice Walton, it is Laurene Powell Jobs. But I can see how you’d get those names mixed up.
