TVNewser has a question well worth asking (although we don’t know what led him to write it):
Is today NBC News President Neal Shapiro‘s last day in that post?
UPDATE: Answer? Well, insofar as he’s going on vacation, yes. But he’s expected to come back. But then again, one can still ask: Why does this rumor start every time Shapiro goes on vacation? Many, many people are able to vacation without people thinking they’re leaving their jobs for good. What’s going on at NBC News?
