Verizon (VZ +0.4%) rebukes a NYT article that says it is nearing a deal with Google (GOOG +0.2%) on web pay tiers that could lay the foundation for a system in which companies would pay to move their content faster. The article "fundamentally misunderstands our purpose," Verizon says, and any suggestion of a business deal between the companies is "entirely incorrect."
