Getting Gagged By Google

Google has banned advertisements critical of The ads, placed by a firm working for Republican Senator Susan Collins’ re-election campaign, were, according to Google, removed for violating trademark policy. I'll bet! Google certainly seems to be, shall we say selective, in its enforcement of policy.

According to this article, the banned advertisements said, “Susan Collins is MoveOn’s primary target. Learn how you can help” and “Help Susan Collins stand up to the money machine.” The ads linked to Collins’ campaign Web site with a headline reading “ has made Susan Collins their #1 target.” The Collins Web site claims that MoveOn has contributed $250,000 to her likely Democratic opponent and has run nine ads against her costing nearly $1 million. The Web site also displays’s controversial “General Betray Us” ad.

Google seems to be learning much from their Chinese friends. Also, check out this article at American Thinker.

What exactly is the Google agenda?
