You are, it's called /. -- It's about the furthest thing from Fox you can find.

And if you wait a few moments until the global news oligopoly passes the story to all the other rags it owns, you can read the exact same text elsewhere too: http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&q=world+bank+computer+intrusion

Oh, I'll one-up-you on the Troll...at least it's not the New York Times; there's a chance that this story is not made up fiction.

Matt Cutts has debunked this story, and Google's AdWords team has also posted to their blog to debunk this. I think it's funny that people beat up on Google for buying ads, when Yahoo just takes the screen real estate for free. Try a search for [online advertising] on Yahoo. They hard-code a shortcut to their own products.

But dollars? That often screws it all up. I guess we'll get to see soon enough..." Relatedly many users are calling the 'nofollow' tag "Google's embarrassing mistake". Justin Mason is just one of many to take a look at the current status of nofollow and what may still be in store for that particular tool.
