This comes via SearchEngineLand who picked it up from the New York Post.

Federal regulators are expected to close a year-long probe of Google’s search business without finding any antitrust violations, The Post has learned.

The Federal Trade Commission is expected to announce before the end of the year that Google’s search engine did not cause any consumer harm or favor its own businesses, sources close to the situation said.

So we can conclude that the FTC is blind. Now perhaps it will be passed on to the hearing impaired DOJ.

The only hope is that the not-so-"dumb" media exposes them, then public sentiment can do it's work.
