For the past couple of months I have come across some full-blown anti-google-baloney, targeted at Eric Schmidt, Googles CEO. Owen Thomas and Paul Boutin, of Valleywag, have been obsessed that Schmidt wanted and would be Americas new Chief Technology Officer under the new Obama administration.
Here are some examples of all this crap:
America's CTO does infomercial for Obama
America's CTO bows to the feds on Yahoo-Google deal
America's CTO gets a fighter jet
Google CEO auditions for America's CTO
America's CTO prepares for Google's layoffs
And then two days ago comes this development, by Reuters (Gabriel Madway): Google CEO on Obama tech czar job: No thanks
Google Inc Chief Executive Eric Schmidt said Friday he would not serve as technology czar in Barack Obama's administration if he was asked.
"I love working at Google and I'm very happy to stay at Google, so the answer is no," Schmidt said in response to a question from CNBC host Jim Cramer in an appearance on his television show.
