Given that Rob Sheridan is still involved with Beats post-merger, it was something of a surprise when USA Today reported that Reznor "reportedly left the company". Reportedly is one of those words, a big blinking sign that says "hearsay".
Over at Rolling Stone, Jason Newman picked up the phone and called Beats, who confirmed " Trent Reznor, Chief Creative Officer for Beats Electronics, will not be leaving the company." I then tweeted about it, saying something about using 470 words to say "Trent Reznor hasn''t left Beats"
It only took me 160 words to get there.
