Google’s Media Barons – John R. MacArthur, the publisher of Harper’s Magazine, has published a strange op ed piece arguing that Google is engaged in “for profit theft” by providing “logistical support for pirating and repackaging everything that we writers, editors, and publishers hold dear.” I’m not exactly sure what MacArthur is accusing Google of doing because he then goes on to complain about Google’s search bias.

Google, according to MacArthur, is elevating free content over pay content. His proof? Harper’s Magazine doesn’t show up when you search “magazines that publish essays” or “magazines that publish short stories.”
