CNNMoney did not push back on their interviewee’s comments and, apparently, didn’t do the homework required to ask better questions. It’s too bad. In fairness to the writer, the piece does disclose that the interview had been edited. Makes you wonder.

Correction: Donna Rosato’s story originally ran in Money, and that is where Rosato works. So the story should say “Money’s Rosato” rather than “CNN Money’s Rosato.” CJR regrets the error.
