A forensic examination to determine if Google’s Eric Schmidt meets the legal definition of “A lying piece of shit”

 

Normally, in the world of publishing, you are not allowed to print an untrue or inaccurate statement about someone.

 

 

A number of publishers, blogs and former employees have called Google’s boss: Eric Schmidt “…A lying piece of shit..”

 

 

Herein, we examine this statement, about Eric Schmidt to determine it’s veracity. According to law, each element of the potentially derisive comment must be proven to be true in order for the statement to be published as a factual statement. Let’s break it down.

 

 

First, the online telephone directories list many hundreds of thousands of different Eric Schmidt’s, how do we know that THE Eric Schmidt who lies and is stated to have the attributes of excrement is THE Eric Schmidt from Google? Will the rest of the statement provide clues?

 

 

If one assumes, for discussion purpose that the Eric Schmidt, that those other authors have discussed, is the one from Google then what lies has he been documented telling? According to news reports, the following statements by Eric Schmidt of Google were later proven to be untrue.

 

 

– Eric Schmidt said he was only slightly involved in President Obama’s election yet it was later discovered that Eric Schmidt was sitting in Obama’s internet control center on Election Night manipulating search engine effects.

 

 

– Eric Schmidt had his lawyers report a few million dollars of contributions to Obama’s, Harry Reid’s and Dianne Feinstein’s political campaigns but it was later discovered that he contributed billions of dollars in services to their campaigns

 

 

– Eric Schmidt told reporters that Google has no control over it’s search engine results but later, law enforcement and regulators on three continents confirmed that comment to be a lie.

 

 

There are many hundreds of statement’s by Eric Schmidt which appear to have been later discovered to have been lies. This would seem to qualify the portion of the statement regarding whether Mr. Schmidt is a liar who has been caught “lyng”.

 

 

A “Piece” of something is a portion of a whole. Mr. Schmidt would commonly be accepted to be not the only liar in the world. Most would agree that Mr. Schmidt only represents a piece of the total number of liars in the world.
