The recent federal court ruling in favor of censorship on the part of Internet companies representing the interests of the Business Roundtable - Comcast, AT&T, Verizon and Time Warner - is a serious threat to the dissemination of critical information vital to the functioning of our democracy.
The consolidation of media companies that has occurred in traditional media outlets, such as newspapers, radio and television, has led to the strategic dumbing down of the U.S. population.
Under tight control by the most powerful corporations on the planet, U.S. mainstream media has become an omnipresent propaganda system designed to divide, distract, confuse and create apathy among the U.S. populace.
In the process, mainstream corporate controlled
media has obscured, isolated and suppressed dissent and understanding of our
present ruling class.
Thanks to the tireless hard work of citizen
journalists (bloggers) across the political spectrum, a growing number of
American citizens have become informed and engaged to a level not seen since
the pamphleteers enlightened the citizenry and sparked the first American
We carefully worded and submitted our information to meet Google’s requirements.
However, after waiting several days, we received a form email stating that our request had been denied. Unlike Rupert Murdoch, who obviously has no understanding of how the Internet works, I know it is vital to get listed on Google News.
(Note to Stupert Murdoch: Not getting listed on Google News is like not having your
newspapers displayed on newsstands.)
We then decided to put much effort and our limited resources into Search Engine Optimization. At least we could maximize Google’s general search results. However, when I released my report “The Critical Unraveling of U.S. Society,” Google blocked it from appearing in their general search results.
I wrote a brief post about Google censoring my report and tried to contact Google several times but never got a response.
Thankfully, after I had submitted my emails of complaint and many other
sites had picked up the report - well over a million people had read it -
the report suddenly reappeared in their search results.
On a personal level, they have published all my
recent reports. (How ironic that a site called The Public Record has come to
So, even though we were censored, we have been able to still get our work listed in this vital online newsstand. However, the powers-that-be at Google seem to have caught on to the fact that The Public Record is publishing our work. My latest report is the first report that The Public Record has ever had removed from Google News search results.
This is obviously a case a selective censorship!
Rory O’Connor, co-founder of MediaChannel, adds:
I have repeatedly reported, in detail, with ample evidence and supporting material/links to back up my claims, that the US government, tax system, economy, stock market and Federal Reserve have been seized by an organized criminal operation that is tactically destroying middle class America.
I am fully aware that these claims may sound
extreme to Americans who have been subjected to the omnipresent mainstream
media (propaganda) system. However, those of us who use the Internet as our
primary means of research and analysis know that the evidence supporting
this claim is overwhelming and could be proven in court given the
So for all of you who wonder
what the Internet may end up looking like when the Comcast, AT&T, Verizon
and Time Warner (all members of the Business Roundtable) interests take it
over, you need to only look at the actions of Google News in censoring my
call for a movement to restore democracy and the rule of law.
With this in mind, please consider reading the report that Google News has censored:
