Google News High Standards, Exhibit C
Google News won’t list LGF. They’ve given us two different excuses: 1) they don’t list “one person” blogs (we now have a staff), and 2) they don’t list simple “news aggregators” that don’t do original stories (this one is just silly; a look through Google News will find numerous examples of “news aggregators”). And they never responded to my email answering their claim that LGF doesn’t break original news stories. (Maybe we should get references from Dan Rather and Maurice Hinchey?)
But they have no problem with uruknet.info, a radical left pro-Saddam propaganda site in Italy. In fact, they recently reinstated uruknet.info as a news source, which means that a human being looked at the site and decided it met their standards.
