Hey Google: welcome to Evil Corporationism

Sad to see this but Google is following the inevitable path that hugely successful American companies get pulled into: that of the evil corporation. I’m not saying Google is evil. Quite the contrary. What I am saying is that the bigger a company gets, the bigger the target on its back becomes ripe for accusations from those that want “fairness”. I hope Google comes out of this better than Microsoft did.

Google is under siege in Washington like never before — and it says an “anti-Google industrial complex” is to blame.

In an interview with POLITICO, a Google spokesman argued that a cabal of antitrust lawyers, lobbyists and public relations firms is conspiring against the Internet search giant. The mastermind? Google says it’s Microsoft.
