    I agree that the CEO unthinkingly allowed his corporate mindset to speak. However, the distressed baby Mama appeared on CNN last night making the same claim that she made at, i.e., . . . ."how he exposed the most searing experience of our lives . . . " and on CNN " violated their privacy" when, in fact, if she and her husband had not revealed themselves to the public only AOL insiders and a few personal friends would have made the identification of their child as the "distressed baby." The question was even asked if she" intended to sue." She commented, " I'm not sure, yet." She also indicated that the CEO had called with what she called, "a genuine apology . . . he has children . .. I believe he is sincere." She is definitely looking to cash in on her fifteen minutes of fame.
