(AP Photo/Paul Sakuma) (Newser) – A really good day turned sour in a hurry for one Google employee. After getting the company memo announcing that all workers were getting 10% pay raises, the employee leaked it to Business Insider. A few hours later, Google honchos fired the unidentified leaker, reports CNNMoney. Google will neither confirm nor deny. "We don't typically comment on internal matters," said a company spokesman.
