Indian Billionaire Joins Buffett, Gates(?)

December 1, 2010 at 9:46 PM

The chairman of Wipro Ltd., an Indian company focusing on IT and computer related technologies, transfers billions in shares to a trust to fund philanthropic work in India “after Warren Buffett urged billionaires to give more of their wealth,” Bloomberg reports.

Actually, the lede suggests a cause-effect relationship for which the article itself provides no evidence.

More vague journalism: “Gates said in Beijing on Sept. 30 he may attend a philanthropy event in India in 2011.”

In related news, Johnson said on Nov. 3 he might walk to 9th Avenue and get a sandwich from that one deli.
