Google Admits Cernovich Had Another Scoop, Agrees to Stop Censoring InfoWars, Cernovich Accepts Apologies
April 18, 2017
Google will not remove InfoWars from its search engine results, Maxwell Tani of Business Insider reports:
Google said Monday that a vendor mistakenly told staffers working for the search engine that InfoWars should be ranked as a low-quality site.
The prominent right-wing website — which has been known to stoke conspiracy theories — blasted Google on Monday after pro-Trump media personality Mike Cernovich shared screenshots that showed a Google contractor saying InfoWars should be rated as a “low-to-medium” reliable site since its stories are “often debunked.”
When Mike Cernovich exclusively reported that Google hired a contractor to target InfoWars for censorship, haters claimed he was wrong. As when Cernovich broke the Susan Rice story, among others, before everyone else, this mistake is understandable.
