Google's New Search Protocol Buries Left, Anti-War and Progressive Websites

You are not living in the free and open society you think you are. Traffic to left wing websites has PLUMMETED this year as Google has changed its algorithms to protect their establishment partners. Its been a coordinated assault on alternative media. The algorithms are just one aspect. De-monetizing alternative news outlets has been another method.

for one it is NOT censorship. it is not a government doing this. it would be censorship and a violation of GOOGLE's first amendment rights for the government to tell Google to NOT do this.

it is not a free speech issue this guy is either a liar or just ignorant of what free speech means.

IF anything it is GOOGLE finally doing what it has already been busted doing to right leaning sites. (Same with facebook and twitter)

but again this guy is not very bright or not very honest... in this case, it is GOOGLE's free speech/press RIGHT to do whatever it wants in this regard.

With Love, Honor & Respect for all of you...no matter how I argue or disagree my heart is full of love for you all...

Government should break up Google.

Really? I googled "anti war" for the hell of it and the first thing I got, on top of the page, was a site with that very name.

Google is burrying alternative sites.... mostly right wing though.

But who cares. Google is the past. Duck Duck Go is much better:

They don't even track search history. Check it out.

Anti War is a libertarian site.

Hey, I didn't know that one. Have to keep it in mind. I searched "Prince" and of course got articles about our guy (in Dutch) plus an advert for a Prince Hotel in Mandalay.
