Google Caught In Terror Storm Censorship
Viewing totals reset despite runaway popularity of Alex Jones video
Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones/Prison Planet.com | September 25 2006
Google is again embroiled in a censorship farce after its Google Video sub-division was caught altering viewing statistics for Alex Jones' Terror Storm documentary, resetting runaway growth curbs to prevent the video making the website's top ten and its online viewership exploding exponentially.
Following last week's buzz about Terror Storm being available for viewing free on Google Video, numerous websites linked to our promo page and as a result viewing figures for all versions of Terror Storm at Google Video began to climb rapidly.
However, upon checking the same viewer figures on Sunday, Alex Jones noticed that many had been reset to zero and had only begun to climb into the hundreds and early thousands, nowhere near their previous levels of tens and hundreds of thousands for the previous days. The trends had been artificially reversed and this prevented Terror Storm from entering the top ten list of Google Video which would have ensured an explosion of further circulation of the video.

The web is losing its freedom, too. One step at a time. Boiling frogs comes to mind again. Phew! It's getting hot in here.

losing what freedom? They own google and they have the RIGHT to reset it whenever they so choose. If you got a problem with it, create your own search engine with alex jones and all will be right again.
