NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It's hard to quantify the level of embarrassment, if not the grossly pathetic punch line that has become search giant Yahoo! (YHOO - Get Report). As a recent shareholder, learning that Scott Thompson has been ousted as CEO arrived as another black eye on the company. It seems to me that Yahoo! saw this as a way to address its own lack of credibility -- by getting rid of Thompson who has been battling credibility issues of his own due to an alleged bio that included a college degree that he never received.Although the company has forced Thompson to fall on the sword hoping that all of this goes away, it only serves as a reminder to investors of the company's own past failures with due diligence. In plain point and fact, the company and its board have now become an absolute disaster. The question now is, what's next?
