Good Google news
: GoogleNews has dropped the nazi site. Says InternetNews:
“Google News does not allow hate content,” said Google spokesman Steve Langdon. “If we are made aware of articles that contain hate content, we will remove them.”
Langdon said news media must apply to be included in Google News and that they are evaluated by editors before inclusion. He wouldn’t provide a list of news media that Google News indexes, nor would he give details of the evaluation process or criteria for inclusion.
I still want them to be transparent on that list and on their criteria. And note that some editor did decide to include the nazi site in the feed.
But it’s gone now. Good for Google.
