So basically it's just going to promote bs; sketchy sites with made up news.



Sure...The exact opposite of what we have right now.

Really?

I think this will be rather impossible but it's a good start...most people can be bought or given false information to perpetuate some idea....

Problem we have here is that anything can be considered propaganda, so who is the one that makes the decision as to what is, and what isn't propaganda that goes up from this search engine?

Crowd sourced info isn't immune to propaganda.

The ideal of an Anti-Propaganda Search Engine is interesting. It's just impossible for one or more humans to program, curate and/or manage such a thing objectively - it's not in our nature.

Education is the best way I can think of to identify bias and agendas in popular news sources. A discerning eye will read several sources and identify the facts beneath the bluster and bullsh t.

This quote from the linked article isn't good:


Think about it: Google heavily promotes Wikipedia, a discredited disinfo and defamation website largely edited by corporate-funded trolls hiding behind anonymity. Even though Wikipedia was co-founded by a "porn king" and carried child porn imagery on its site, Google gives it high rankings while punishing the independent media websites that actually publish the truth.


Even if you agree with the sentiment, the language is emotive, disparaging and epitomises propaganda.

The 'Code of Ethics' could be a problem too...


No indexing of sites promoting porn, gambling or Big Pharma.
• No surveillance of users and no storage of search history from users.
• No sharing of search data with the NSA or other spooks.
• No "gaming" of search results to favor my own projects (such as Natural News).


The 2nd and 3rd bullets are already available through the DuckDuckGo search engine although the 3rd isn't really a choice - NSA et al intercept using man-in-the-middle tech.

So...About the same that's out there right now?

I don't know. Do currently available (and popular) search engines censor results to present only one side of the story on popular issues? Unless you can prove that, this is definitely not the same as what's out there now.


Here's an idea. Use both and dive into the middle.

I see this a lot on ATS — people who think the way to find out the truth about an issue is to read all shades of opinion and make up their own minds. Really? Is that how you people out there do it? No wonder the world is such a mess.

The way to find out the truth about an issue is to obtain the facts, preferably at first-hand. Shades of opinion have absolutely nothing to do with it.
