Kind of curious to learn how Google allows [a company] to get away with ads like this.

Black Friday: $87.99 HDTV
Samsung 50" LED HDTV for 95% off! Black Friday Blowout Sale. Buy Now.

I have seen similar ads were major players are advertising products that simply are not available. Realize that Google can't check the accuracy of all their ads. People must be complaining, is Google simply looking the other way and lining their pocketbooks in the process.

I don't see how Google could or would police the ads to see if bait and switch tactics were taking place.

I would think it's more of a matter between the company, its consumers, and the attorney general.

I wouldn't expect a newspaper or a TV channel to monitor the ads it publishes, so why should Google be any different?
