Interesting comparision:

Stuttgart TV Tower ( http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=2661 ): 216.6 metres according entry, 216 metres according Google Earth

Nevertheless Google Earth has a problem with lattice towers like electricity pylons as such objects are not modelled properly and it does not work in rural areas as there are often no 3D-information available.
Are we talking about the classic old google earth app or the new browser one?
If latter is the case, I would love how you can measure heights there since the tool, similarly to google maps only allows for horizontal measurements and not vertical ones...
