Likely true: Bill Gates discovered he had like half a dozen VP's blowing smoke up his butt. It depends on the company and whether or not it's family owned, though.

Occasionally they are used as scapegoats and take the fall from the owners who "knew nothing about THAT." Walmart comes to mind...

The people at the top surround themselves with people who shield the top guys from any information that could be problematic down the road. It's standard operating procedure for large companies, especially with laws on the books that say company owners can be held personally liable for things like gross safety violations resulting in death, if they are aware of them. The solution? Make sure the top guy is kept in the dark about the dirty deeds of his company.
