Demand Google News Transparency

• Views: 1,494

Following LGF’s report that Google News has added neo-Nazi site National Vanguard to their index of news sources, Jeff Jarvis demands transparency.

We’re demanding transparency of mainstream news.

Well, it’s high time we get transparency from GoogleNews.

Instapundit and LGF point to a nazi site — complete with “love your race” graphics — that is part of Google News, while mainstream sane blogs are not.

Enough.

Google: Release a complete list of your news sources now. And institute a means for questioning those choices and for suggesting other choices now.

Google: It’s bad enough that you won’t share information about ad revenue sharing. But not to share information about your means of selecting news sources is inexecusable… in this case, evil.

Indeed.

UPDATE at 3/22/05 9:30:05 am:

Another “Vanguard” site, the openly antisemitic Vanguard News Network, has been compiling and publishing names and addresses of Jewish professors: Hate Group Casts a Wider Net. (Hat tip: lykeios.)

A few weeks ago, participants on an anti-Semitic Web site became angry when a law professor at the University of California at Los Angeles refused to participate in an exchange of e-mail messages.

The professor was Jewish, and the Web site responded by placing photographs of and biographic material about UCLA professors and anti-Semitic diatribes online. In recent days, the Web site — Vanguard News Network — has expanded its campaign, which it says is designed to draw attention to the high percentage of Jewish professors on law schools’ faculties.

The Web site is now publishing a variety of information — photographs, results of Google searches, phone numbers — of faculty members who are Jewish (or have Jewish-sounding names) at leading law schools all over the United States.

Among the institutions who have faculty members discussed by name on the Web site are Georgetown, Harvard, New York, Stanford and Yale Universities; and the Universities of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Most of the comments attack Jewish faculty members at law schools, with a theme being that they make up a larger share of law school faculties than do Jews in the U.S. population, and that this over-representation signifies Jewish control of American society.

But some of the professors attacked are not Jewish or law professors. A black female professor is described as “Mammy Stormtrooper for Jooz.”

And a few professors who are listed teach in other disciplines. Harry Jaffa, a professor emeritus of government at Claremont McKenna College, is described by one of the Web site’s authors (verbatim) as “a troll jew at CMC, next to my school, Pomona, in Claremont. He’s the major Lincoln liar — the leader of the school that refurbishes reality to fit current jewish political needs, ie claiming lincoln was a liberator rather than dictator.”

UPDATE at 3/22/05 10:26:54 am:

Roger L. Simon has removed Google Ads from his site: Is Google Progressive or Reactionary?

I wish I had them so I could remove them too.

UPDATE at 3/22/05 11:03:13 am:

The usual anti-LGF stalkers and nutjobs are showing up in the comments to Jeff’s post: Comment on Demand Google News transparency.

UPDATE at 3/22/05 6:01:30 pm:

The left’s dumbest blogger, Oliver “Smirky” Willis, chimes in with another turgid “Charles Johnson is a Nazi Hitler” comment. Love you too, Smirky, but you really need some new material.

Charles Johnson of the hate site Little Green Footballs is calling out Google News for including a Nazi hate site.

I guess there’s competition in the hate blogger space and Charles wants to carve out his own niche.

UPDATE at 3/22/05 6:53:11 pm:

On a more positive note, I greatly appreciate the eloquent defenses of LGF posted in Jeff’s poor abused comments page by LGF readers Ariel, cat dancing, Donna V., E. Nough, goldsmith, Pablo, and many others. Thank you, lizardoid minions, for your help in advancing our plan for complete domination of the Earth.

UPDATE at 3/23/05 7:22:44 pm:

Google News has removed National Vanguard from their index of “legitimate” news sources.
