Install rpmrebuild package and run rpmrebuild -e -p /path/google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm.

This will open .spec file of the package. Find line %dir %attr(0755, root, root) "/usr/bin", delete it and save the file.

rpmrebuild will now build a new "valid" package, it should be located in ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/google-earth-stable-7.1.4.1529-0.x86_64.rpm (it will print the path).

Simply install it using sudo dnf install ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/google-earth-stable-7.1.4.1529-0.x86_64.rpm

(And of course, fill a bug as @skytux suggest. This is a really bad package.)
