Early yesterday morning the Inquirer reported that "WELL PLACED SOURCE" had told them Google would be buying Valve "any minute now". [more info] Gaming news sites began redistributing the information. Unconvinced, MTV Multiplayer asked Valve's vice president of marketing Doug Lombardi for a comment. His two word response was "complete fabrication".

This is exactly why I check as many sources as I can before accepting an article as anything other than a rumor. And if I'm not mistaken this isn't the first time the Inquirer has been accused of just plain damn making shit up.
Something to note here, Lombardi HAS said before that Valve is up for grabs. [more info] And there is some speculation that Google might be interested in the game publishing. [more info] So technically it COULD happen. But honestly, buying Valve? Highly unlikely.
