Bob Boorstin, Google's Director of Policy Communications, wrote a letter
to the Rose Foundation
, suggesting that the foundation stop funding Consumer Watchdog
, an outspoken Google critic.
Google later apologized
for sending the letter. The latest accusations involve claims
that Google lobbied Congress to gain the ability to profit from the sale of electronic medical records, a claim that Google denies
. Consumer Watchdog countered that Google should back up its denial
by fully disclosing its lobbying efforts.
