CNET News.com's Holly Jackson spoke with Drudge Retort owner Rogers Cadenhead. For another perspective, Charlie Cooper chatted with News.com's editor in chief, Dan Farber.

Believe it or not, there's more news on the Yahoo front. This time another activist investor --no, it's not Carl Icahn--has an idea how to better populate the company's board of directors.
