Google "Beneath the sheen of do-gooder ideology, FairSearch can be most charitably described as a Google watchdog. It seeks to fan the flames of disapproval where they've started organically, originate them where they haven't, and generally disseminate negativity toward the Google brand. Think of it as a PR firm working to destroy rather than create goodwill." To make matters worse, FairSearch' work isn't even very good.

Do you think Red Hat is going to turn around some day and go all close source and scorn the open source community?

Red hat is actually not a good example for the point that you are trying to make. They have demonstrated already that they will go as far as the license permits to gain advantages over their competitors. It was big news when they made the commit history of their RHEL kernel source non-public in order to combat Oracle Enterprise Linux.
