Precision of height values determined with Google Earth

How precise are height values determined with Google Earth? Is the precision for all areas, where 3D is available, the same or are there some differences?

Interesting comparision:

Stuttgart TV Tower ( ): 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.
