When my old college buddy Owen posted a story on Valleywag about Google’s plane landing at Moffett Field, I forgave him, since the entire purpose of Valleywag is to write gossipy stories about Silicon Valley culture. But when the New York Times picks up the story and actually calls sources to try to confirm or deny the rumor, that, my friends, is a Google sneeze.

All the news that’s fit to print? I think we might have saved a tree on this story.
