Google Total Results Provides Logic and Reasoning

This is the first time I have ever heard of someone using Google as a method of providing a logical explanation for a unsupported statement. What am I talking about? In Danny Sullivan's post he discussed a conversation he had with Fox news where a reporter asked him his thoughts on using Google's "total results" figure to determine whether or not the BBC is anti-american.

His logic was that by typing in to Google bbc anti-american a total results of 51,300 came up.

Shocking that people would use Google as a means to provide support to an argumentative statement. Danny's response was (not quoting here) that Fox news was more anti-american because they had 54,000 for fox anti-american. They are 2,700 more results anti-american then the BBC. This is too funny.
