    use the search engine bing or yahoo or others to search "10 examples freebeacon google"
    read the top article that comes up by freebeacon..

    i am now a permanent bing user..

    the internet shall not be censored.

    facebook recently got caught doing the same.. i already do not use facebook and cannot stand it, not much i can do about that..

    hope this helps some of you. o_O

    all search engines make their money by selling ads and steering searches-all have their own agendas-if you think any different you are incredibly naïve-big brother has been watching, listening, influencing and programming us for a very long time...that said thanks for the info!

    google works fine, but when they start making edits and changes to what people see in searches and search results, it does not work fine.
    it cannot be trusted for accurate search results.
    this is big and interesting news in my opinion.
    it is bad when the tv news media does it..but once the algorithms in search engines start getting manipulated on the open internet, things have gotten out of hand.
    i have been on the net long before google was around, i have many alternative engines to use. people need to be made aware of what google has chosen to do and that is what i am doing.

    some lesser known alternatives with similar search algorithms:

    Bing (my new default on all my machines)

    DuckDuckGo

    StartPage Web Search


    5 Secret Search Engines Way Better Than Google » Big Oak Internet Marketing

    Escape Google With These 12 Search Engine Alternatives | Search Engine Watch


    i am done with google.

    the internet should be open, free, and uncensored.
    i have to search out news on tv by watching so many sources and coming to my own conclusions, and that is bad enough. tv media corporations are old and corrupt, i do not expect them to ever change and report just the facts.
    now i have to deal with corruption online because the world's largest search engine company decided to become biased? i do not think so..

    people need to know this is happening since so many use google as their go-to search engine.

    i want the facts when i search, not opinions or edits..

    why is this posted here? because this is one of few places i communicate with people online, and i am hoping it will help people who may not have known this was otherwise going on.

    If there were no liberals there would not be a 707 horsepower 200 mph car available to the public. Conservatives are old and boring.

    Blaze I take what you say seriously but I can't help hearing the music from Les Miserables playing in my head when I read this ("Do you hear the people sing, singing the songs of angry men....").

    However I feel there needs to be one pure source of unfiltered information and that is the Internet. Libraries are dead.

    i love libraries and spent a great deal of time there as a child and will still go and get lost once in a while. there is treasure everywhere there...

    i guess i cannot stop fully using google as a tool, but it disappointing they did this in my opinion..

    Big shocker there blaze.

    Kinda like NY post or daily news printing all of those extra copies and dumping them so they can keep numbers up and charge stupid advertising fees. It is a real scam and people who work hard have to pay

    Blaze- good on you to see the truth, take a stand, and do something about it. While what other have said about making money off search (via ads) is true, manipulating what is on the internet (and found via organic search) is *not* something that should be tolerated. Bing is a good product and is honest in the results it gives. While I would prefer to not get into particulars, lets just say I know from first hand experience this is the case with Bing and not so much with other search providers.. ;)

    You can laugh. But there has been a lot of talk about transgender issues in the UK. Some schools have removed the boys / girls sign from the toilet doors so not to offend. Some schools have put in specific transgender toilets. Whilst I feel sorry for the poor buggers that wake up every morning wondering if they should be a boy or girl today. WTF. The problem with the UK is it tends to over react to the few and ignore the masses. F**k political correctness. Deep breath and now back to google

    *whispers* Below is the actual header that I cut and pasted from the Off Topic section and the descriptor. Please alter future discussion in this thread accordingly, as these subjects often quickly spiral out of control and then I must don my "Mean Moderator" outfit again. Thanks for understanding!
