Skip to comments.GOOGLE's Anti-Conservative Agenda
Posted on 05/03/2005 11:33:07 AM PDT by Bob J
This CONSERVATIVE ALERT is a special message for Bob Johnson from RightMarch.com: ALERT: Do you think we have a hard time fighting against the left-wing bias of the liberal mainstream media?
Well you're right -- but it's worse than you thought.
Now, it turns out the people running the big search engines are liberally biased, too -- and they're CENSORING conservative search ad results!
Specifically, we're talking about the biggest search engine: GOOGLE. Everyone uses Google. It's even a verb now -- "I'll Google that to find out."
But it's also an advertising vehicle -- you can pay Google money, and they'll put your short ad on the right-hand side of the page of search results, based on what people are searching for.
Well, we saw that if you typed in "Tom DeLay", all of the ads were ANTI-DeLay ads. So, we took the time and spent the money so that our PRO-DeLay ad would show up too -- first.
But then we wanted to also put up an ad that exposed the hypocrisy of the Democrats -- basically, showing how the Democrats are going after Congressman DeLay for things that they've done MUCH WORSE in. So, we copied one of the ads posted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee almost WORD FOR WORD, but changed "Tom DeLay" (the GOP leader) to "Nancy Pelosi" (the Democrat leader, who violated ethics rules much worse than what DeLay is accused of).
That's all we did -- we took the LIBERAL ad, and changed the words to make it a CONSERVATIVE ad.
And Google CENSORED our ad.
They pulled the ad, and the reason they gave was, "Google policy does not permit ad text that advocates against an individual, group or organization."
But the LIBERAL ad is still up. Click Here to take a look at the liberal ad; then look at our ad (and Google's rejection) by clicking here.
OUTRIGHT DISCRIMINATION! So now we need YOUR help to expose this blatant anti-conservative bias at the largest search engine on the planet!
TAKE ACTION: We're launching a major media blitz TODAY, with press releases to every media outlet in the country, plus broadcast interviews and an expose' on our weekly radio show this week. We're also placing this Action Alert across a network of major news websites, and dozens of blogs are already picking up this story. Google may think they have a "right" to apply their rules differently to different people -- but WE have a right to SPEAK UP when we see them exhibiting BLATANT liberal bias!
We need YOUR help. We've set up our site so that you can send messages to YOUR local media -- newspapers, television, radio, etc. -- DEMANDING that they report on the LIBERAL BIAS of the largest search engine in the world.
You can only send to five local media sources at a time on our system, but feel free to use our pre-written form repeatedly to FORCE the media to DO THEIR JOBS and report on this bias. Click here NOW to send your messages (we recommend you re-write the letter in your own words, to have a better chance of getting it published):

We don't have to sit idly by anymore when we see this kind of anti-conservative, pro-liberal bias ANYWHERE. Be sure to send this Alert to EVERYONE you know who wants to help DEMAND that the mainstream media report on Google's ideological discrimination. Thank you!

The 650 area code (SF burbs) is all you need to know. It doesn't get any more blue statish than this!
snopes.com is another growing anti-conservative site taking advantage of the built up users
Use DogPile.com. It's a search engine that searches all other search engines. You get results from all the other search engines on the net on one page!!!
Are there any search engines that are not biased or are conservative based?
I already do - I still Yahoo
No need to take the interstate if you have the time for an enjoyable drive on the back roads. ;)
It lists all available articles and which search engines they were found on. You can avoid all the radical left wing engines and web sites.
There isn't a SINGLE sponsored link in a Pelosi search.
There are several with DeLay, all negative.
Thanks for the link to http://clusty.com/ - looks like a good resource.
I just had a look at dogpile. It looks good. Thanks, I'l start using it.
I will be interested to see if this affects their stock price. They are flying high at the moment, at 227/shr. Since that is way inflated, this could be the pin that pops their bubble, if it is done right.
Are you sure about that?
One of the founders went bezerk on Michael Moore (in person) and repeatedly called him a liar (face to face).
She eventually was mocked by the media for losing it, and did a partial, slight retraction, but I do know that she (and either her husband or partner or whatever) voted for Bush.
In the website itself, under a 9/11 thing, its referanced.
There's no reason why bloggers can't make Google as....ahem.... popular..... as Air America, right? Let them both die an agonizing death. They've made their "choice" of whom to serve.
From what I've read, yahoo is a big democratic contributor.
"Are there any search engines that are not biased or are conservative based?"
I find the Yahoo search engine to be very easy to use and basically without political bias.
It is very effective to find out if an author of a hate GW, conservatives or Christians article is a long time Gay Advocate pusher or just a lib who hates America, GW, conservatives and Christians.
