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.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
