    Oh don't worry, i'm sure FOX News will pick them up.

    That zinger out of the way....

    I don't think Google News should turn up any webpage that is an editorial / opinion piece because, well, it isn't news.

    News is "reporting the facts as we currently know them to be" and leaving it at that.

    News is not "Ok heres what happened, now lets bring out a pannel of pundits to yell at each till the next commercial brake, but if the ratings stay high we'll keep 'em around another 5 minutes.".

    I would block everything of the later varity from coming up on Google News (being able to find it on a regular Google search isn't a problem) but that isn't what they seem to have done... they're just blocking some sites because somebody didn't like what they read.

    I'm very disapointed with Google's actions.

    Is Google suspressing conservative news sites? Wouldn't surprise me in the least, considering Google is ever so willing to do China's bidding to keep its dissidents under control so that alternative thinking can't reach ordinary citizens. There's some interesting information on the founder of Google in the article I recently posted entitled "Partisan Politics: A Threat to Our National Survival."

    05. Wal Mart, Rush Limbaugh, the Pope, Jerry Falwell, et al
    04. Democracy
    03. Capitalism and private property
    02. Traditional Families

    Google cooperated with the Chinese GOvernment to implement the government desired censorship. I wish it wasn't such a damn fine search engine.

    You people are all nuts!

    There is a reason for the nickname GOPgle. Its news searches provide more NewsMax and Freep hits than I thought were even possible.

    Maybe editorialized hate speach just doesn't cut it as news? Oh, wait, that might be too reasonable an explanation! It must be a CONSPIRACY!!!! We're under attack!!! Save us! We're VICTIMS!!!! And, don't forget to save Christmas too!!! Aaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!111oneoneone
