CNN statement in support of Tech writer Mark Milian

On Thursday, March 31, Tech writer Mark Milian wrote a story about Google's plans to introduce facial recognition technology into an application. After the story was published, Google issued a statement suggesting the story was a fabrication. Here is CNN's statement in response to Google's accusation:

“Google’s claims do not fit the facts of the situation. This interview was prearranged – on the record – and staffed by a Google PR rep, who raised no objections at the time and did not deny what the engineer said. Additionally, we have an audio recording of the interview, as does Google. We stand firmly behind Mark’s reporting.”
