Google's arrogance exceeds its common sense

Schmidt erred by complaining to Slaughter. If you're going to bankroll a think tank while allowing it to have the appearance of independence, you don't call the CEO to whine when it disagrees with your profit-making ideology. At most, you write or have written a propaganda piece paper that refutes the original claims, then walk away. See "Streisand Effect." The credibility of Slaughter and her tank have tanked. Nice shot, Schmidt!
