Stephen Colbert poked fun on Google and Bing copying of search result drama

Few days back, Google claimed that Microsoft Bing copied Google search results. Late last year, Google had run a sting operation that it said proved Bing had been watching what people searched for on Google, selected on the sites from Google’s results, then used that information to improve Bing’s own search listings.

However, Bing denied this. Microsoft's Bing Team then hit back at Google over accusations that it stole Google search results for its Bing search engine, accusing Google of engaging in a honeypot attack and going after the Bing because it was worried about its growth. Microsoft reiterated that they do not copy results from any of our competitors. Period. Full stop.

Stephen Colbert, an American political satirist, writer, comedian and television host, the host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, poked fun at the drama this week. Watch him on the video below:
