Google Takes Bricks from Great Wall
Edward Wasserman, Miami Herald
Google, the media giant that makes its money by running the most successful Internet search engine on earth, has its fans, but I have never been one of them. True, as Google labored to meet an endless succession of new online needs and has gotten unimaginably rich in the process, I have at times watched with admiration and awe.
But I'm uneasy about Google's enormous size, and I disapprove of a business that brings in $24 billion a year for stocking its shelves with products it does nothing to create and pays almost nothing for.
