When one combines this with what I have heard about what Google is doing with their search engine, its kind of discouraging.  I heard about this from Russ Baker and I then tested it.

I did a four part series on the Kennedys and Civil Rights.  If you punch that rubric into Bing or Yahoo, it will come up on the first page 2-3 times.

If you punch it into Google, it comes up once. Maybe this is why?

There is a war on for the space between your ears.  And these guys will try anything to win.  As Thomas Jefferson said, the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. 

Jim,

There is one reason I use BING and not Google.  Because It's Not Google.

Thanks

A long time ago, I used to use meta search engines like MetaCrawler and Dogpile.

I haven't used them in a long time.

Got out of the habit, I guess.

I'm not familiar with the intricacies of the bigger subject this article broaches.  I freely admit I'm technologically inept.  But I thought it might relate in this thread.  In that the topic and article both relate to being able to participate in the JFJ Assassination Debate.  As well as searching for information relating to it.

The issue is simple.  If all or mostly all information comes from a small pool source and any information to the contrary is excluded from that source by personal opinion by those sources corporate entities, does this hurt or stop freedom of thought and/or expression?  If so, there is a problem.
