No. Actualy, either you're wrong, or you're shilling for Slaughter. The facts are very simple.

Barry Lynn wrote an article critical of Google. Google Chairman Eric Schmidt complained to Anne-Marie Slaughter - CEO of think-tank New America - about the Lynn article. After hearing Schmidt's complaint, Slaughter fired Lynn.

That's it.
