  • US government sues Google for alleged anticompetitive abuses in search - October 20, 2020

    About time. Add facebook, twitter, and a few others to the list.

    Google literally makes and breaks sites/businesses etc. with their placement algorithm. There is an entire industry devoted to orchestrating a higher ranking on a google search. They appear to play with lives and there is apparently no recourse if your site appears low in the rankings.

    ...An event billed as a free speech rally and a protest against Twitter turned violent Saturday. The event featured some well-known conservative personalities, but organizers were forced to cancel the rally minutes after it started.

    A large crowd of demonstrators gathered at UN Plaza in San Francisco to oppose a small group, holding what was billed as a free speech rally protesting what they say is Twitter's censorship of some of its content.
    ...
    Before the event, the main organizer, Philip Anderson said he was attacked and punched getting his front teeth knocked out.

    Anderson posted photos to social media of his bloody mouth with a front tooth missing and another hanging loosely. He said anti-fascist protesters attacked him "for no reason."

    "Take a good look, you knocked a black man's teeth out," said Anderson.

    Minutes later, Anderson announced the rally was over.

    "Too bad it got canceled, that's what happens when you lose free speech, this is what our country has turned into," Anderson told the crowd.

    Some counter-demonstrators felt victorious...
