    This is an interesting claim to me because I’ve noticed for quite a while that my two go-to news aggregators, Google and Bing, seem to carry very different content under the Top Stories category. Bing has far more stories sourced from Fox News. Google seems to really like CNN.

    Maybe the stories they pull up for me are based on my own prior clicking habits.

    I leave it as an exercise for the reader to fill in the details.

    This is just more diversion: try to soften up Google and other internet companies and put them on the defensive. Can’t see it as a genuine effort to try to “regulate” Google.

    I use Google News too. You can set preferences e.g. which news sources to block completely. I have blocked the ones that now require paywalls or that I just find idiotic – and not just right-winger sites, either.

    No Duh!
    Try this test. Search “Trump Has Herpes” on all three (Smeegle, Bing and Yahoo!) search engines and see the results. Then make up your own mind.

    “Search “Trump Has Herpes” on all three (Smeegle, Bing and Yahoo!) search engines and see the results. Then make up your own mind.”

    Ok, I did that (am assuming smeegle is your term for google though I have no clue as to why). All three search engines report an incident of a hacked Caltrans message sign as the first result.

    What point am I missing?

    Ooo! Way to rock the mojibaki, cbaravelli!

    That brings back memories. Let’s see. 1997, system software 7.6.1, Netscape 3, maybe they had NS 4 at school by that time. Unicode was already there but was still many years away from gaining mainstream acceptance, so bringing up duobyte text like Japanese and Chinese glyphs on a machine set up for Latin and Cyrillic text usually resulted in that.

    “How Bizarre” OMC and something by the Spice Girls were a couple of big cuts at that time.

    Now all that remains of that old school is a hole in the ground. Literally, it’s the biofilter swale in at the end of the athletic fields in front of where the new building stands that was constructed 2002-2004.

    No surprise that POTUS, a petulant manchild with no moral compass, accuses the media of slanted coverage when the fact is THERE ARE more negative coverage stories to be found then supportive ones. He brought this on himself by attacking the media from the get go.

    This is just another attempt at distracting the main stream away from all the real news about what drumpf did, what his “great people” he appointed did, and the fallout that is happening now.

    drumpf knows he is in trouble, the GOP is in trouble, and in two months more than likely his impeachment will not be conjecture. If the already foregone switch in House control isn’t enough (72.5% chance of switching control per 538), the Senate races in the toss up states are currently showing a real squeaker. It takes 67 votes in the Senate to convict the bastard in chief, so it would take some Republican votes. My guess is that by the time the case gets to that vote, Mueller will have put the final nails in drumpf’s presidential coffin.

    ThIs IS 2018. (sic)

    . . . Coming from the guy who still says “Nipponese”.

    You, sir, have just lost what little credibility you had on this forum.

    Amazing you’re not calling it “Japland”. I kind of figured you would be, you know, since you’re already using one dated ethnic slur.
