Ouch, totally forgot Google buying AP /AFP /Reuters feeds. That's a major one since they cover virtually 100% of news and putting an AP story linked to Google.com/news/Bin-Laden-was-captured... sure takes away lots and lots of traffic that news sites got before. In the past Google sent you to washpost.com or nytimes.com etc to read the feed or maybe their own story about the subject, now you read the feed on Google and for most people there's no need to keep getting any more details.
Stepping on a lot of toe$, but should "never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel."
