The New America Foundation released three emails in response to articles about the firing of Barry Lynn, who was planning an event critical of Google, the major funder of the think tank. Lynn is a specialist in the danger of monopolies.

I read them, and it sure looks like Lynn was fired for offending Google. At one point, Anne-Marie Slaughter, president of NAF, mentions a meeting including Susan Molinari, a former GOP member of Congress from New York who is currently a registered lobbyist for Google.

Message to the New America Foundation: When you are in a hole, stop digging.
