Google exposed

From USAToday:

As it claws for greater power, the Democratic Party has found a newly rich ally in one of the fastest-growing U.S. companies: Google.

Google employees gave $207,650 to federal candidates for last year's elections, up from just $250 in 2000 when it was still a start-up. And 98% went to Democrats, the biggest share among top tech donors, a new USA TODAY campaign finance analysis shows.

The online search giant's beefier political profile reflects moves by the broader tech industry to defend itself in recent years as Washington debates Internet taxes, offshoring of jobs and other hot issues.

It's been pointed out lately that Google is showing quite a bit of bias in its policies regarding who included in its news section.
