Via Google News: ‘Republicans Return to Their Homophobic, Right-Wing Base’
Well, let’s see what Google News doesn’t view as “hate speech,” shall we?
With a hat tip to a NewsBusters reader, Google News Saturday morning posted the following article from Capital Hill Blue: “Republicans Return to Their Homophobic, Right-Wing Base.”
Nice headline, huh? And, according to the reader that gave me this tip, this headline was at the Google News main page when he opened his browser this morning. Must have gone down real nicely with his Wheaties, dontcha think?
For those that don't believe Google News would really include such an article in its news crawl, please click here.
But, the best was yet to come, for the piece began: “We're not surprised that Republicans plan to return to their extreme right-wing base to try and save their asses in the November mid-term elections. When it comes to support, all the GOP has left are the homophobes, bigots, racists and religious wing-nuts."
Hmmm. So, it appears that Google news is opposed to articles that discuss Islamic extremism and its relation to terrorism, but they don’t find objectionable referring to roughly 35 percent of Americans as “homophobes, bigots, racists and religious wing-nuts.”
Joseph Goebbels would be very pleased.
