AOL on NBC’s YouTube killer: We still like Google

Internet companies seem nervous that their dance partners will be offended if they also take a spin with new video-sharing service that NBC and News Corp. announced today.

Here’s part of a note I received today from an AOL spokeswoman:

Some of the early news reports today are speculating that this venture is aimed squarely at Google and YouTube. As you’re aware, Google has a 5 percent stake in AOL. Our goal is to provide the largest number of video assets to our audience of more than 100 million unique visitors a month. Just as we continue to work closely with Google in search and other areas, we also work closely with other partners.
