Google Inc's Suppression of Free Speech and Retaliatory Action Against CNET News sign now

We herein show our disgust and condemnation for the actions taken by Google Inc in attempting to surpress free speech by banning its staff from talking to news outlet CNET News as a result of supposedly unfavorable coverage.

In particular, we refer to the following:
On July 14, 2005, CNET News reporter Elinor Mills published a story revealing wealth, earnings, and hometown of Google Inc. CEO Eric Schmidt. Mills broke no laws in uncovering this information, and demonstrated that this information was in fact already in the public demain..obtained by using the technology of Google's own search engine.

The story can be found at:

In response to the innovative and careful reporting of Mills, Google has placed a ban on talking to CNET for 12 months.

We pledge to cease using Google search or any other Google product for no less than one month, and for as long as Google decides to continue taking such action against media outlets.

By signing this petition, we object to the hypocrisy of Google Inc. in offering and promoting a product which it then decides should not be used to research Google Inc. and its executives.
