A comparison: Reasonable claims of Google News' bias
, versus unreasonable claims of Google News' bias.
Cory Doctorow certainly is agitated about a single right-leaning source; I wonder if the half-dozen representatives of the rabid left (even lacking Daily Kos) bother him likewise?
I don't have a problem with either Kos or LGF (or any other partisan sources) being indexed in Google News, as long as any and all submitted sources are. Without the strictest guidelines for neutral sources, for Google to make any judgments at all is hypocritical. Selectively rejecting some (as is
the case for LGF, and not
Kos, as its removal was by request) for being partisan, but not others (Powerline on the right; Infoshop, Antiwar.com, Democratic Underground et al on the left) is a cowardly sop to a half-hearted vision of nonpartisanship.
