In the News What about a little Nixonian intrigue? A respected public relations firm has been caught executing a secret smear campaign against Google to large media outlets, trying to make Google looks bad (or worse, depending on your point of view). Who hired this firm to do this? You'd think Microsoft or Apple, it's right up their alley - but no, it's actually Facebook.

Not really - Microsoft puts their misinformation campaigns right on their site (viz. Get The Facts), while on the odd occasion Apple slanders someone, Jobs will just get on the phone or in front of a camera and start delivering flat insults.
