Google attacks Michael Moore's Sicko

Google has now apparently rescinded the offer to counter-program against Michael Moore's movie Sicko that a Google employee, Lauren Turner, made on the Google Health Care Blog.

Many of our clients face these issues [of horrible PR because of evil practices?]; companies come to us hoping we can help them better manage their reputations through “Get the Facts” or issue management campaigns. Your brand or corporate site may already have these informational assets, but can users easily find them?

[Google] can place text ads, video ads, and rich media ads in paid search results or in relevant websites within our ever-expanding content network. Whatever the problem, Google can act as a platform for [mis]educating the public and promoting your message. We help you connect your company’s assets while helping users find the information they seek.

If you’re interested in learning more about issue management campaigns or about how we can help your company better connect its assets online, email us. We’d love to hear from you! Setting up these campaigns is easy and we’re happy to share best practices. |Does Negative Press Make You Sicko? - Google Health Care Blog| |Emphasis and Sarcasm mine|
Good to see that Google is taking sides in this debate.

Back when Network Neutrality |Wikipedia| was a hot potato in Congress, I used searches on network neutrality to demonstrate Google bias before. Searching other sites like Clusty or Exalead returned quite different results in Clusty and Exalead during these exercises.
