Citing 600,000 Google Results in Senate Argument

Killing time before my flight home from Southern California today I glanced at the TV which had CNN. It was a senator (didn’t catch his name) urging his fellow senators to set up hearings to investigate the steroid scandals in sports. The argument that CNN showed? “Just to give you an example, I went on Google and searched for ‘buy steroids.’ Guess how many results? 600,000! Ladies and gentlemen, this is a big big issue.” Hmm…something tells me this guy doesn’t have a clue how Google performs searches and that after the first, say, 300,000 results I have to wonder if every single site actually shows how people can buy steroids online.
