The Inquirer has made a truly mischievous offer to Carly Fiorina, former CEO of HP. The company, resulting from the merger of Hewlett-Packard and Compaq, is in considerable difficulties, as the inquirer has merrily written about in articles like The three ways HP has screwed up and How HP totally lost the support plot.
But now in a remarkable offer they have asked Ms Fiorina to write a column. It seems unlikely that Ms Fiorina will take up the offer given the consistent history of criticism that she has faced from The Inquirer but perhaps she will? Who knows? What if she does say yes? Will the inquirer find itself publishing a series of articles criticial of itself? A revenge on months of sniping?
It seems unlikely. But stranger things have happened.
