SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A published report says Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson didn’t provide the information that led the troubled Internet company to list a bogus college degree in his official biography.

Thompson told other top executives at a Thursday meeting that he never provided Yahoo with a resume or incorrect information about his academic credentials. That’s according to the Reuters news service, which cited an unnamed person familiar with the matter.

Yahoo Inc. declined to comment.

It’s the first time that Thompson has explicitly denied lying to Yahoo about his educational record before or after the company hired him in January.

His integrity has been under attack because a dissident Yahoo shareholder last week revealed that Thompson’s bio included a computer science degree that he never received.
