Google has announced it will start punishing “Fake News” sites by refusing to display ads on their articles. Google made this announcement after the 2016 USA election did not go the way all the Main Stream Media announced it would. Google and other liberal companies publicly blame the major news networks’ failure to get their candidate elected on third-party news sites. They are certain they can have their political way, if they can only shutdown any non-approved news outlets.
So the question is, Will Google punish NBC, CNN, and other sites for presenting skewed/fake polling data? You know, multi-million-dollar fake news sites that function as propaganda outlets for certain political parties? The “real” news sites that present skewed polls intentionally to get voters to vote the way everyone else supposedly is voting?
So, if Google’s employees don’t like your news, or find it inconvenient, you can expect to be labeled “fake” and have your advertising revenue cut. Google should be warned that MicroSoft played games like this ten years ago, and now they lost their main OS monopoly to an upstart OS called Android. Google may find itself marginalized (along with their OS and search engine) if it steps on enough consumer toes.
Many disgruntled Internet users are suggesting the use of duckduckgo.com instead of Google as a boycott of Google’s censorship efforts. I’ve found myself using duckduckgo more often these days, too.
