Google Refuses Conservative Ad, Similar to Liberal Ad

Google Refuses Conservative Ad, Similar to Liberal Ad -- 05/04/2005

I found this interesting considering how much I use Google! Now what does one do? But - read the story and it's pretty clear there's something going on with Google which is not friendly to Conservatives.

He noticed an anti-DeLay ad for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that stated, "The Truth About Tom DeLay - Learn about DeLay's many scandals and help us clean up the House! dccc.org." Greene attempted to purchase a similar ad that stated, "Truth About Nancy Pelosi - Learn about Pelosi's many scandals and help us clean up the House! RightMarch.com"

"That's all we did," Greene told Cybercast News Service. "We took the liberal ad and changed the words to make it a conservative ad."

But Google refused the ad.

Then at the end of the story you'll find this which is even more curious. Pornography is preferable to Guns. Hmm.
This is not the first time that Google has been accused of bias. In October 2003, a federally licensed firearms dealer in Connecticut complained that Google was accepting ads for pornographic websites - which illegally made materials available to underaged children - but would not accept ads from licensed gun dealers selling a legal product to adults. At the time, a spokesman for Google said the policy was "part of our terms and conditions."
