Nope, I think he's right in this case. They're not entitled to Pagerank (or traffic) and didn't a court at one point rule that Pagerank was an opinion? Thus Google is entitled to their opinion of the paper's paid links. All they had to do was slap nofollow on those suckers and no harm no foul - they still get paid and they keep their Pagerank. Unless the links really *were* sold for Pagerank.
