The media is chockers with news that Murdoch and Microsoft are talking about cutting out Google and giving all the attention and content to Bing.

Let’s take a glimpse of Google without News Corp: no great loss:

Here’s a search for “lieberman public option” and “wall street journal,” but with results from and filtered out — in other words, what Google would return if they weren’t allowed to index News Corp. pages.

All but the top two results — irrelevant HuffPo stories — show you exactly what Lieberman said in the Wall Street Journal. And would conceivably show you a link to the WSJ. So, no big loss.
