Pot. Kettle. Google.

If Google was truly serious about competing with TWC, they would offer their TV product for less than $120 a month.

$120/month not too bad since it includes 1Gbit. But they should include voice service. Maybe something like include an Oooma box, which has option to directly setup with Google Voice service.

$120 a month for Pay-TV is ridiculous, when the local cable company offers it for $30-50/month.

The tv service is $50 on top of the $70 internet. Voice service is a joke. Honestly there are so many VOIP services out there to choose from. You could get ultra cheap to a more expensive reliable service depending on what you wanted.

No, the TV service is $120/month.
You can't buy it for a penny less.

^Wrong. TV and 1GBit Internet combined is $120. So TV is additional $50..

Google internet is "free", according to most cheerleaders here, even though it costs $300.

If you want TV, you'll pay $120 a month.

It ain't free either.

So forced bundling is only "evil" when Verizon does it?

No, if GOOG really wanted to compete you wouldn't need their internet product for their TV service. the STB would be Internet based an you could use any ISP with it.

$120 includes 1gig internet PLUS an 8 stream DVR and channels that would only be available on higher TW packages, even ignoring speed, time warner can't touch this price-wise, and they are no where near offering an 8 stream dvr.
