The article reports that Google has opposed a report published in the "Wall Street Journal" which revealed that Google has approached a number of large cable and phone companies with a proposal that could give the company's traffic preferential treatment on the Internet. Richard Whitt, Google's telecom and media counsel, claimed that the report was based on misunderstanding of the way open Internet works. He added that Google is doing a fairly common practice among Internet service providers and application and content providers, and that the company is not seeking preferential treatment that is unavailable to anyone else.
