Default Netflix's Hastings Worst Tech CEO of 2011: Poll

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Netflix(NFLX_) CEO Reed Hastings is the worst tech CEO of 2011, according to a recent poll of TheStreet readers.
Of the more than 200 people that voted, 58% named Hastings as the most terrible tech titan of the year after a series of blunders that included mishandling a subscription price hike and confusing consumers with plans to split up the company's DVD-by-mail and subscription businesses.

Shares of Netflix have dropped nearly 60% since the beginning of the year as consumers have lashed out against their once-beloved company.

Ouch not good news.

No surprise. A vote of no confidence should have been brought to the surface by now.
