Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer busted the Huffington Post for phony reporting on her, Poynter reported.
According to an editor’s note on HuffPost’s website, it had said Mayer and her husband Zach Bogue “bought the most expensive house in San Francisco history” but it turns out the couple didn’t buy the pricey house.
Mayer alerted HuffPost to the error in a tweet reminding “don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.”

Poynter has a screenshot of the bogus Sept. 6 story, which has since been deleted.
