Google Purging Conservative News Sites II
A while back, there was substantial controversy about GoogleNews dropping several conservative blogs from their site.
Interestingly, one of the main ones at the center of that controversy, Jawa Report, is back (via email tip from Joe Gandelman). Since the controversy broke, I’ve also noticed that the libertarian-right QandO is featured and the very conservative Michelle Malkin startup Hot Air (here). Such sites as Conservative Voice (here)and Gandleman’s The Moderate Voice (here)are also included.
The criteria for selecting and not selecting–and even purging–blogs from the search results remains unclear. Some of these sites include actual reporting; others don’t. Clearly, though, it’s not a purely ideological decision.
