Google Hiring Twelve Lobbying Firms

Google plans to hire twelve lobbying firms to deal with the Federal Trade Commission's anti-trust investigation. And you guys thought I was kidding when I said Google was going to be busy this summer with legal stuff!

Google said Friday it will hire a dozen new lobbying firms in a sign the search giant is taking the Federal Trade Commission’s upcoming antitrust investigation seriously. "We have a strong story to tell about our business and we’ve sought out the best talent we can find to help tell it," said a Google spokesperson via email.
