Google Sucks - Yep, back to that

So much for 'don't be evil'. Google's supposed company motto is apparently 'don't be evil, unless it helps your political pals, then hey, go for it".

Google has banned ads purchased by a committee to help re-elect Susan Collins (R)ino, ME. Apparently she has become a target of Moveon.Org and they've helped her opponent raise over $250,000. But when Senator Collins attempted to purchase ads on Google to rebutt the attacks, Google said that they would violate trademarks, copyrights or some other such nonsense and wouldn't allow them.

Funny how Google allows ads that denigrate all kinds of others like Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, President Bush, et al, but has zero problem banning advertising that attacks their buddies at Moveon.Org.

I can't say it's censorship because only the government can censor people's RIGHT to free speech. Google can truly choose who they want to sell advertising to, being an independent corporation.

However, perhaps next time you're doing a search, you'll choose Yahoo, Dogpile, or some other less obviously biased search engine.

Yep... Google Sucks
