Google News - So long as you agree with us liberals you can stay

If Google keep on acting the "ass", they could be heading for litigation as it has become clear that it's been censoring conservative news sites and taking them out of their so-called "news feeds".

Why litigation? Well I spoke with an civil attorney who specializes in that type of case and he said "Yes" Google could very well be sued for excusionary practices. No matter what your EULA states, it cannot violate freedom of speech laws and potential discriminatory actions.

That would be - for the Google defenders - judged by a jury.

They are especially in danger is a conservative news site is excluded and "minority owned"

....heh.

This could catch fire. Something their stock doesn't want.

UPDATE: Google's past and present legal problems:

Sued for profiting from Child Porn.

As well as other trouble pending from Click Fraud. Like I said, a publically traded company's investors get real nervous when this kind of activity is taking place.

UPDATE II: Just a little clarification. Do I think the case - if any - against Google would fly...perhaps. As I said, the day Google began to become a publically traded company and not so much a "privately owned directory", changed everything. Google touts itself as a Free News Service, yet if they censor, the question is of course - are they really free?

I know of course that there are news services that are blantantly biased in their reporting such as Raw Story and The Huffington Post, neither of which is considered credible as a "News Source".

Whether anyone actually challenges them in court would be interesting to watch, but as it stands now just the bad press may be enough. After all who would want their logo to be remembered as:










UPDATE III: A little background into how Google does it.

Speaking of overt bias, I submit this to date unexplained and quite frankly childish sample of what happens when you search the term "liar" in Google. Before it returned Tony Blair as the first hit, it had President Bush (note that I and many others think Clinton would be a better choice - but I digress). The fact is there is nothing in the page construction that would allow that type of return unless an editor at Google "set it up" that way.

Case closed.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Monday Morning Intelligence with Kool Aid and the NY Times - UPDATE

Followup to previous post.

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
