President Obama is all for demonizing large American corporations that avoid taxes through income shifting…except when those large American corporations are dumping money in his campaign coffers. Bloomberg is running a big story on Google’s lucrative use of the very loopholes Team Obama wants to eliminate: Google Inc. cut its taxes by $3.1 billion in […]
Helpful Tip for Obamaniacs: Turn Off Google’s ‘Auto Complete’ Feature Before Searching For Info About Your Hero
**Written by Doug Powers By way of Moonbattery, it’s time once again for “Fun with Google’s ‘auto-complete’ feature.” If you’re a fan of the president, you might want to just turn it off: That really happens. Go try it yourself. I hear Chris Matthews uses it as his version of “thinking about baseball” when he […]
**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers I’m a little punchy after a day of listening to Elena Kagan doing her best impression of the love child of Betty Friedan and Nathan Thurm, so I hope I’m reading this story wrong, but knowing Google, I highly doubt it: Google plans to pay gay employees more Google is […]
**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers Last year on June 6th Google celebrated the 25th birthday of Tetris: On June 6th the year before that, Google recognized the birthday of Spanish painter Diego Velasquez: But today, June 6, 2010… nothing: Google is purposefully ignoring a big event, aren’t they? Don’t they know that this is the […]
Gmail has been down for at least an hour. But don’t complain too loudly about it. You know how Rahm Emanuel likes to exploit a crisis…and the last thing we need is another Email Czar. *** Tip: If you go to igoogle, you should be able to access your gmail.
Don’t be evil.
This would be funny if it were not so pathetic. Newspaper publishers want Google to adjust its search engine rankings to give preferential treatment to Old Media. The industry is in trouble and it’s looking for any help it can get — and anyone to blame: Major media companies are increasingly lobbying Google to elevate […]
Just Google it.
I still get a dozen e-mails a week expressing outrage about the sophomoric Google bomb linking President Bush with the phrase “miserable failure.” In case you haven’t heard, you’ll all be happy to know that Google has now addressed the issue (via NYT): Google announced on Thursday on its official blog that “by improving our […]
Zeroing in the mortars in Basra: Soldiers from the Royal Green Jackets based at the Basra Palace base said they had considered suing Google Earth if they were injured by mortar rounds that had been directed on the camp by the aerial footage. “Even if they did blank out the areas where we are based […]

The NYTimes spotlights moonbats who have nothing better to do with their time. Like Bryan said last week: These are the people who are going to build a nuclear Google bomb and drop it on the GOP? For some reason, I feel less threatened by this than I guess I should. Their cyber nuke will […]
Charles at LGF sends word that left-leaning Google has now registered a political action committee. The Guardian writes: Google’s PAC will be run by a five-person board of directors who will be guided by the recommendations of an advisory committee made up of Google employees. It will raise its funds through voluntary donations from staff. […]
…more trouble for conservative users, if Google News’s and Google execs’ campaign donations records are any indication. Here’s the official word on the buyout: Google Inc. (GOOG) snapped up YouTube Inc. for $1.65 billion Monday in deal that catapults the Internet search leader to a leading role in the online video revolution. The all-stock acquisition […]
No e-mail. No search engine. Seems like it’s been down all morning. Anyone know what’s going on?
Again. Daveed recommends: If you find the inclusion of al-Manar as a Google News source outrageous, I encourage you to send a polite but firm e-mail to source-suggestions-at-google.com encouraging them to remove al-Manar as a news source. Pamela at Atlas Shrugs has all the background you need. Filou, too. *** Previous: Google’s news sources Google’s […]
Betsy Newmark is back and blogging up a storm. She notes other blogs affected by Blogger’s incompetence (Viking Pundit, Fausta, and Stolen Thunder) and adds: I got a message from Blogger saying that they had recovered my blog and that somehow I had gotten caught up in some massive “automated spam prevention system” action that […]
What happened to The People’s Cube? Maybe Al Gore’s people at Google Current TV can find out for us and report back. *** LGF links to an update.
…doesn’t like me. Wonder why? Maybe it was the China Google Protest Logo Album.
Lots of new entries for the China Google Protest Logo Album coming in. Here’s the best of the second batch. Posted at Discarded Lies: Sent by reader Herman F.: From Junkyard Blog’s Bryan Preston: Sent by reader Jorrit P.: Posted at SheepDog blog: From The Unalienable Right blog: From reader THW (a clever anagram of […]
I’m collecting photoshopped/altered Google logos by bloggers and others in response to the search engine company’s decision to kowtow to China. Let a thousand protest icons bloom! Here was mine: Murdoc: Pam at Atlas Shrugs, who’s calling on you to divest from Google: Point Five: Dean Esmay: Got more? Send ‘em in. Meantime, Pajamas Media […]
What will Google’s search engine logo look like tomorrow? Here’s my suggestion: Via Breitbart/AP, Google capitulates to China’s censors: Online search engine leader Google Inc. has agreed to censor its results in China, adhering to the country’s free-speech restrictions in return for better access in the Internet’s fastest growing market. The Mountain View, Calif.-based company […]
While there’s a lull in the action on that important troop withdrawal vote, take some time to stop by these blogs. They all used the Just Google It graphics or made their own versions. Lifelike Pundits Eric’s Boredom Revealed The Owner’s Manual Halbert’s Cubicle The Red Vee Dub SoCalPundit The Kellino Zone UrbanGrounds The Shape […]
The response to the Just Google It graphics has been amazing. Many blogs have taken the graphics and posted them on their sites. I actually don’t have a straightforward way of keeping track of just how many there are, but I’m sure the number is over 100 now. I’ve been looking for them via trackbacks […]
The Bush administration is finally and concertedly pushing back against the Deaniac Democrat lie that President Bush somehow lied us into war in Iraq. The president has delivered two speeches in the past few days that take direct aim at those Democrats who voted in favor of the war but now claim that the administration […]
