+ - Google News and Censorship: Is this a Pattern?

Submitted by Jon Meyer
Jon Meyer (666) writes "The Google YouTube handling of Nick Gisburne is very similar to their News page's handling of Uruknet.

According to Alexa, the web-ranking organization, Uruknet is highly rated as an Iraqi news source. Yet, with no convincing reason, in late January Google delisted Uruknet from Google News. A campaign to restore Uruknet to Google News is underway. See this link for the full story.

Does the YouTube incident, Uruknet and Google's recent defusing of Google Bombs indicate the search giant is entering a new phase of more strident and direct information censorship?"

The biggest difference between time and space is that you can't reuse time. -- Merrick Furst
