Google Censors Our #OccupyWallStreet Report
Over the past few years, we have had a few cases were Google decided to censor a report of ours from their search results. We documented one case publicly here. We usually don’t make a big deal about it online because people tend to just dismiss us as “crazy” when we do. However, this latest case is blocking our new report on the #OccupyWallStreet movement and we would like to bring it to the attention of the many supporters within the movement. The post is entitled, “A Report from the Frontlines: The Long Road to #OccupyWallStreet and the Origins of the 99% Movement.” After we published it late yesterday afternoon, when we checked Google and typed in the full headline, it was featured at the top of their search results . However, as of this morning, Google has removed our post from their results.
Phi Beta Iota: Our operating assumption is that Google has joined NSA and CIA to create in internal version of “Total Information Awareness,” with the other side of the coin resident in Singapore, where the government very uncharacteristically (foolishly) bought into American snake oil offerings. Google is superficially nice to have, but at root it has become part of the larger evil.
