    Danny Sullivan seems to be a man on a mission. He’s always been a little too close to Google for comfort – more of a pet poodle than an Industry watchdog. But recently, it seems that he has become more directly involved in delivering Google’s company line than usual. Currently, Danny Sullivan is to Google what Fox News is to the Republican party.

    This interview appears to be just another strand in a carefully contrived PR war. From search neutrality, to Universal Search, to Google’s European anti-trust troubles, Danny’s arguments are all based on a misrepresentation of the issues that are little more than propaganda. You only need to read around the subject for a few minutes to see what I mean.
