Google A Advertising Monopoly?

Bam, with all the good news floating around these days, I was not much too happy to read the article on Bloomberg about President Obama's nominated Antitrust chief, Christine A. Varney, might be gunning for Google.
“For me, Microsoft is so last century. They are not the problem,” Varney said at a June 19 panel discussion sponsored by the American Antitrust Institute. The U.S. economy will “continually see a problem -- potentially with Google” because it already “has acquired a monopoly in Internet online advertising,” she said.
But Barney has also praised Google previously;
"The Mountain View, California- based company, owner of the world’s most popular search engine, is a “spectacular” innovator that became the dominant online advertiser through “terrific work,” Varney said. She also said Google had “lawfully” obtained its monopoly."
I for one will be watching this!
Bloomberg article takes you through her role in previous governments and anti trust case against Microsoft.
