The mood shifts against Google

John Battelle summarizes the current anti-Google mood in the media. An excerpt:
    There's blood in the water. WashPost (reg required) rounds up the scathing headlines and commentary here. The Merc, NYT, WSJ, the Post, the FT....the list goes on and on. The journos are piling on. And Google is in a quiet period, so it can't defend itself. But there are plenty of folks willing to say nasty things, especially those on Wall St. who felt snubbed by Google's middle finger of an S-1.
This cycle seems familiar. The press hypes up something beyond all possible reason, then gleefully tears it back down.
