Google may be a good company. They certainly do what they do very well, and are constantly coming up with new ideas and innovations all the time. (Side note: I use a subsidiary of Google to post, although my actual site is hosted elsewhere.)

TimeWarner, Inc. may be a bad company. The massive amount of disparate media controlled by one gianormous corporation has led, I believe, to a poorly-informed American public. That’s an argument for another time.

However, even if you accept my initial assertions, it’s difficult for me to then conclude that Google is worth more than Time-Warner. Google is worth 80-billion-with-a-“b” dollars? Really?
