    Google's top executives received an improper subsidy on fuel purchased from the federal government for their private jets worth millions of dollars, according to a report released by the NASA Inspector General on Wednesday.

    Notice that the article makes no mention of the government asking Google to pay the money back, only that they should "explore possible options to remedy the situation". The question really is whether it really was a "misunderstanding" or if it was intentional and they've just been caught cosying up to Google.

    I'd say it's fair

    The company paid NASA $1.4 million a year to rent 70,000 square feet of hanger space at Moffett Federal Airfield, about four miles from the company's headquarters. As part of an agreement with H211, NASA was able to collect climate data during more than 200 flights conducted by H211 at no cost to the space agency.

    They paid the price for a service they received and that means the bonuses at the expense of the tax payer is completely unfair.
