"The Justice Department described as 'inaccurate' a news report today indicating the government had decided to break up Microsoft, although it stepped away from providing details about ongoing negotiations with the company.

Justice Department spokeswoman Gina Talamona responded to a story in today's USA Today indicating government lawyers had reached a consensus on splitting Microsoft into at least two companies. ... 'The story is inaccurate in many respects. It does not accurately represent our view,' she said.

Talamona, however, did not go so far as to say government lawyers had not reached a consensus or planned to break up the Redmond, Wash.-based software maker. She also declined to specify the exact inaccuracies."
