Speaking at a newspaper conference, Google CEO Eric Schmidt might have spilled something which he should have kept to himself. Or should we give him the benefit of the doubt and just think that he did not mean what he said and was just trying to please the newspaper crowd?
Well according to reports, Mr. Schmidt made a rather insulting statement to bloggers that says:
There is an art to what you do. And if you’re ever confused as to the value of newspaper editors, look at the blog world. That’s all you need to see.
That was surely a painful, trite remark – putting down the billions of bloggers worldwide, right?
Incidentally, in case Mr. Schmidt has forgotten already, Google happens to host possibly billions of bloggers running its AdSense business. Google also runs several company blogs being updated by Google employees who can be called “bloggers.” And we here at Search Engine Journal who consider ourselves as one of those “bloggers” have been covering Google News, praising Mr. Schmidt’s company for great new products and services.
I don’t think we all deserve that insulting remark.
