Daily Finance, an AOL site, is reporting that Microsoft's lobbyists hold weekly meetings where the discussion revolves around taking on Google. In attendance are consultants and others who oppose Google. The meetings have become known as "screw Google" meetings by DC insiders.
I used to work in politics. I used to work in DC. These type of meetings happen all the time, in all sorts of industries and with all sorts of issues. It's not a Microsoft or Google thing. It's not a Democrat or Republican thing. It's a politics thing.
Google lobbyists meet to discuss Microsoft, I would assume. If they don't, then Google should fire them for being crappy at their job.
Move on, there's nothing to see here. Just politics as usual in the nation's capital.
