Google Moving To Shut Down Alternative Media By Ranking Sites On “Facts” Rather Than Popularity

FK – While I can see by reading the other links that this is a real threat, linking to ‘before it is news’ doesn’t help this story’s credibility. That is an obvious dis-info site.

FK – They’re already censoring the net(From Wikipedia):

Search engine bias

Although search engines are programmed to rank websites based on some combination of their popularity and relevancy, empirical studies indicate various political, economic, and social biases in the information they provide.[21][22] These biases can be a direct result of economic and commercial processes (e.g., companies that advertise with a search engine can become also more popular in its organic search results), and political processes (e.g., the removal of search results to comply with local laws).[23] For example, Google will not surface certain Neo-Nazi websites in France and Germany, where Holocaust denial is illegal.

Biases can also be a result of social processes, as search engine algorithms are frequently designed to exclude non-normative viewpoints in favor of more “popular” results.[24] Indexing algorithms of major search engines skew towards coverage of U.S.-based sites, rather than websites from non-U.S. countries.[22]

Google Bombing is one example of an attempt to manipulate search results for political, social or commercial reasons.

FK – It will only get worse unless we make it illegal for these now giant corporations, in league with tyrannical governments, to determine what the average dumbass is exposed to.
