Google's Post-Hearing Spin


A man passes under the Google sign at Google headquarters in Mountain View, California on January 5, 2010.  Google unveiled its new "superphone," the Nexus One, marking the online search giant's first leap into the smartphone market.  UPI/Mohammad Kheirkhah(UPI/Mohammad Kheirkhah)

Google was in full spin mode this morning, blasting out the positive coverage of yesterday's Senate anti-trust hearing to its blog and email boxes around town. But one lobbyist who received the greatest-hits compilation sent me an interesting observation: 
"The entire Google strategy for government relations seems to come back to: we're better than Microsoft - even at GR tactics. Every clip they have here is about style - not substance," said the K Streeter, who doesn't have a dog in this fight. 
What do you think? I've included the blog post after the jump. Shoot me a note and weigh in.
