: I’m not ready to accuse Google News of bias but I’m just asking. I’ve seen a few headlines up top from odd sources. Right now it’s:
from Albawaba Middle East News.
Senior Baath Party official captured;
Thousands of Iraqis demand US forces to leave
What’s interesting about this is that unlike the mortally boring J-school and blog discussions about whether and how the NY Times or FoxNews or the Guardian are biased, in this case, you can dig into the Google News algorithm and find out precisely what the bias is. Computers don’t lie.
Google should open up its new algorithms to public scrutiny.
