85% ...of readers say Interpublic Group of Cos. was not right in moving John J. Dooner out of his role as CEO of the holding company and back to the helm of McCann-Erickson WorldGroup. Only 15% of respondents said Interpublic made the correct decision.

"I don't understand how he is sent back to McCann where he was in charge when all the account mess happened."

"[I'm giving] John the benefit of the doubt. He inherited most of the financial trouble...and to move him back to McCann is better than dumping him on the street, as happened to many acquired IPG agency people....I credit him with the honesty and fortitude to bring it all to the front. It has cost stockholders deeply."

Terry Fagan

Retired from McCann/Interpublic/Atlanta

"He should be out, not [moved] over."
