In an article dramatically titled "Facebook's day of reckoning," The AP portrays today's earnings as the end-all-and-be-all. You think the handing down of The Ten Commandments was a big deal? Just wait until we hear whether Facebook hit Wall Street's consensus estimate of 12 cents a share on revenue of $1.16 billion.
