PR, Larry Ellison style: “Hey Jerk”

In this age of thrift, Silicon Valley’s chief executives are finding a new way to cut costs — by handling public relations directly.

First we had Steve Jobs telling people to hold their iPhones differently.

Now Oracle’s Larry Ellison is on the offensive, offering guidance to reporters writing about his pal Mark Hurd’s debacle.

Ellison sent this fireball to Fortune’s Philip Elmer-DeWitt today, with the subject line “Hey Jerk.”

Adelyn Lee went to jail for a year for falsely accusing me of sexual harassment. Why did you leave that out of your story you scum bag? Let me guess … your job is telling half-truths. Fortune Magazine must be very proud of you.

Who needs Fortune when you’ve got your own, right?
