Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know what the facts of this story really are:
presumably Google will have an anodyne explanation for
this "misunderstanding".  In any case, I remain convinced that it would be a very good thing if the European Community sponsored one (or preferably more than one) European search engine.  By now Google-like search engines are recognizably a valuable tool in protecting
the modernized version of "freedom of the press", and
as such is much too valuable to be left in the hands of
a monopoly or oligopoly.

I remember when they delisted Indymedia.org from Google News because someone in the open publishing column (comperable to the diaries here and at dKos) used a term like 'zionist nazi' or some such.  people pointed out that a different referenced site used the word 'islamofascist', and also that google could link only to 'editorially approved' indymedia articles, but no matter.
