Google's Schmidt talks to Post reporters, editorial

Google CEO Eric Schmidt dropped by The Post yesterday to talk to reporters and the editorial board. In a wide-ranging, hour-long conversation with us, he spent a lot of time talking about net neturality, stressing his firm's support of the FCC's move to create new rules. The Post's editorial board has come out against the proposal.

To be sure, he believes the role of the FCC is to act as watchdog of access providers -- Comcast, Verizon and AT&T -- who act as the onramps onto the Web. He doesn't believe, contrary to some carriers, that the rules should include content companies such as Google. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said yesterday he feels the same way.

Here's Mike Musgrove's story today from our interview.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt deigns to talk with Post reporters. Reporters, recognizing that Google provides virtually all of's revenues, slow-pitch him softball questions and then don't fact-check the answers.
