Submission + - Google: Evil as long as it aligns with the agenda (wnd.com)

ChristTrekker writes: Apparently, Google doesn't mind being a little bit evil, as long as it fits a certain political alignment.

In the wake of the revelations about Obama's Social Security number and the questions raised by the report, that Google was suppressing access to information about the report, linking to completely unrelated stories when consumers would search for the issue on the site's news tab.

Now a similar search of the web portion of the site brought up several warnings. For a reference to the report at hunsbergers.net, another at cleanclock.com, and a third at ccweldingco.com – all just on the first page – Google warned "This site may harm your computer."
