Big Brother is Googling You

Google, which already essentially steals the work of journalists, is now out undercut newspaper on-line ad sales. The association representing the world's major papers wants anti-trust investigations of Google's actions. That might fly in the EU, but it won't get anywhere in the States. And in Canada? Don't make me laugh. This is a country whose regulators say there's no proof of collusion in the gasoline industry.

Could you explain, for those of us in the cheap seats, how Google steals the work of journalists?

True, enough, Google News doesn't pay for the content that it displays. But it does direct people to journalism and their home newspapers which a lot of people would never see otherwise.
