Whoops! Forbes writer mistakenly calls Irish president 'acknowledged homosexual'

    After resigning, he goes on to blame the Forbes culture that demands too much work. The demands in this case were four posts a month.

    It has been a glorious summer in Ireland this year, with other distractions and responsibilities. All of a sudden, I found myself three articles short as July wound down. So after 16 hours of work on the Samantha Power article – for $50 (€38) – I hit the “post” button without that last, last review critical to my lifelong trade. And apparently, not one person at Forbes bothered a look as the post went global.
  2. Well, he's not wrong.

    Which is why he shouldn't be too upset about losing a $50/story job.
