BBC News - Harvard researcher rejects Google's 'personal attack'

Considering the fact that Google VP Marissa Mayer has acknowledged Google engages (or at least used to engage) in favoritism (see, e.g., 2007 quotes in this page), it seems rather hypocritical of Google to accuse a Harvard Business School researcher of being biased

Ben Edelman, an associate professor at Harvard Business School, published a study this week claiming Google boosts its own products in search results.

The Californian company responded by suggesting he was actually working on behalf of its rival, Microsoft.

But Mr Edelman told the BBC that Google was launching "personal attacks" to distract people from its own behaviour.
