Old media attempts to break up Larry and Lucy

BusinessWeek is trying to call a halt to Larry and Lucy's wedding! We get that Google is killing your print-ad sales. We get that being dependent on Web searches for, say, half of your traffic or whatever scares the bejeezus out of you. But really, mainstream media, this is a low blow — trying to put a pause on marital bliss with a conveniently planted scare story on billionaire prenups?

Another ink-stained wretchery has already called foul: New York suggests BusinessWeek, in running the article right before Google cofounder Larry Page's wedding to Stanford Ph.D. student Lucy Southworth, is attempting to cause trouble in their tropical paradise. It's all quite silly. Valley billionaires don't give their brides prenups — they give them funding.
