Thanks to our listeners and supporters, we have once again topped Google’s Trends. Now, for the first time ever, three terms, “Google Evil,” “Spying on Drudge” and “PrisonPlanet.com Censored,” have simultaneously charted the influential hot trends list.
Here’s why we initiated a buzz around those terms:
#2 “Spying on Drudge” – Horrifying revelations emerged today via an FOIA request that show that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) engaged in spying on Matt Drudge, of the DrudgeReport.com, and other media outlets (like those of Alex Jones) after they contributed to a nationwide revolt against the TSA. Further, a leaked TSA memo refers to these dissenters as “domestic extremists.” Bob Barr, who has spurred an investigation into the TSA’s standdown during the Thanksgiving Holiday to avoid “opt out” controversy, is behind the FOIA request.
#3 “PrisonPlanet.com Censored” – An extension of “Google’s Evil” is the fact that it has de-listed PrisonPlanet.com and Infowars.com from Google News listings in the immediate wake of the full-on TSA revolt which the DrudgeReport.com and PrisonPlanet.com played a major role in pushing. Blocking our site from these listings is a discriminatory practice which prevents frequent news readers from stumbling upon Prison Planet articles while browsing. Ironically, it also prevents PrisonPlanet.com articles from being linked to #1 Google Search terms with which they are associated. Note: This is not the same as being blocked altogether from Google.com searches.
Thanks again for your support in driving these important issues into the mainstream.
