For example, Senator Mike Lee of Utah questioned why Google product search ranked third so consistently when product comparison sites did not fare so well on average. Schmidt had to explain that Lee was making an apples-to-oranges comparison.

Lee appeared unconvinced and insisted Google appeared to be cooking its search results.
"I can assure you that we've not cooked anything," Schmidt replied, evidently unperturbed by the government grilling.
