Adventures in Bad Cisco Ledes

Before:

Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO) may begin one of its largest workforce reductions in August by eliminating about 5000 jobs.

After:

Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO), the largest networking-equipment company, may cut as many as 10,000 jobs, or about 14 percent of its workforce, to revive profit growth, according to two people familiar with the plan.

I’m so sad. I really liked the implied calendar bucketing in the first (bad) lede.
