Marissa Mayer, Meg Whitman Steel Cage Death Match (In Charts)

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- While not quite as entertaining as watching peanut gallery members chirp (AMZN) post-earnings, observing Marissa Mayer haters hate Marissa Mayer lengthens attention spans. Because Marissa Mayer hating illustrates the pretension and inanity that pervades the tech media.

Marissa Mayer haters expect Yahoo! (YHOO - Get Report) to turn around overnight.

Yet, you don't hear quite as much barking about Meg Whitman's five-year plan at Hewlett-Packard (HPQ - Get Report)

Anyhow, I'm not going to rant and rave. I've done enough of that in previous articles on HP and Yahoo. It's clear where I stand, but I will say it would be nice if Whitman received the same level of scrutiny Mayer does. Because, at this point, relatively speaking, she's getting a free pass.
