I can see Matt Cutts sitting in front of an fact-finding committee of Senators already... being grilled for 8 hours on CSPAN.. on why Google did not take the proper steps to assure a large company like JCP could not harm thousands of little guys who are struggling in the economy
But is there any law that requires google to ensure the most ideal world? When even god cannot ensure the most ideal world, how can a govt. expect a company to ensure it in the SERPS? And there is no law that says that those operating search engines should ensure no harm arises to anyone due to their faulty algorithms.
Taking another example, viruses attack computers running windows OS.Does that mean govt. should grill microsoft for not ensuring an OS that cannot be hacked in any way?
If you extend this to articles in the press, sometimes I do feel like people are expecting google to acts as gods!
