Talking paper

"After the close, a New York Times report said that Morgan Stanley (MS, Fortune 500) was considering a merger with Wachovia (WB, Fortune 500) or another bank." Posted to cnn.com 9/17/2008 by "Senior Writer" Alexandra Twin.

In my world, only human beings can actually "say" things. To me, it follows logically, therefore, that someone capable of, you know, "saying" things would be described in the past tense as having, you know, "said" something. I'm delighted at the progress modern science has made now that reports can actually speak. And kudos to cnn.com for harnessing the technology to disseminate the news of the day.
