U.S. GOVERNMENT ASKS GOOGLE TO REMOVE ALMOST 4,000 POLITICAL ITEMS FROM SEARCH

 

 

” Reports came out yesterday in the UK covering Google’s newest release of their “Transparency Report.”  Turkey has been known for it’s total lack of press freedom, and now reports show the U.S. is approaching the same leagues as Turkey.

  The report was presented on the blog of Susan Infantino, the Legal Director of Google.  She and her legal team launched the annual Transparency Report three years ago, in hopes it would “shine light on the scale and scope of government requests for censorship and data around the globe.”

  From January to June 2013, the search giant received 3,846 government requests to remove content from its search services, which represents a 68% increase over the second half of 2012.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr. President: Take down this film!

  ” The film, about as offensive to Muslims as “Piss Christ” is to most Christian (and many non-Christian) Americans, was seen by the administration as a perfectly plausible reason for these riots (and murders) to have happened. “Piss Christ,” meanwhile, which received an award and a $15,000 National Endowment for the Arts grant when it was first exhibited, is on display in a gallery in Manhattan this week.

Though Obama and Hillary Clinton have yet to be heard on this depiction of Jesus submerged in a jar filled with urine, they have been filled with remorse at the insult to Muslims. So remorseful, in fact, that they spent $70,000 on ads airing in Pakistan. As the wonderful Mark Steyn informs us, “Obama and Clinton are currently starring as the Siskel & Ebert of Pakistani TV, giving two thumbs down to ‘Innocence of Muslims’ in hopes that it will dissuade local moviegoers from giving two heads off to consular officials.” “
