Correct me if I'm wrong, but the sites in question were just removed from Google News, not Googles general search? So all they did was refuse to label the sites as "news", which after skimming the three linked articles I would have to agree that they are not.

I must admit I've never looked at Google News until today, so if it really is all opinion then I guess these sites have as much right to say what they will as anyone else. If Google chooses to ban them because it's hate speech (unquestionably), that's Google's choice although I can't say I agree with it.
