Google, Oracle Ordered By Judge to Rat Out Their Phony Journalists

Fallout from the Oracle vs. Google case has landed on unexpected — but not undeserving — heads: Those of propagandists masquerading as journalists.

In a terse order issued today, San Francisco District Court Judge William Alsup mandated Google and Oracle to list the names of all the phony journalists in their employ.

“The Court is concerned that the parties and/or counsel herein may have retained or paid print or internet authors, journalists, commentators or bloggers who have and/or may publish comments on the issues in this case,” reads Alsup's order.

“…Each side and its counsel shall file a statement herein clear (sic) identifying all authors, journalists, commentators or bloggers who have reported or commented on any issues in this case and who have received money (other than normal subscription fees) from the party or its counsel.”

The tech giants have 10 days to name names.
