ATLANTA, May 4, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The world’s most popular search engine just lost points with Political Conservatives by turning down ads placed by RightMarch.com. William Greene is founder of the firebrand conservative web site that dispatches millions of emails to its grassroots base. His organization has published full page ads in national newspapers supporting US conservative politicians Don Rumsfeldt, Tom DeLay and John Bolton.
But just as RightMarch.com attempted to launch a new wave of ad buys with Google.com, much to their amazement, Google refused the paid ad. Greene took an existing anti-DeLay ad and changed the name “Tom DeLay” to “Nancy Pelosi” (a left-leaning Democrat) yet Google refused the anti-Pelosi ad and continues to run the anti-DeLay ads.
Greene said, “Simply put, Google is censoring conservative search ad results. Nancy Pelosi violated ethics rules far worse than what DeLay is accused of. All we did was to take a liberal ad and make it conservative. Isn’t turnabout fair play?”
The official reason Google cited for refusing the ad was: “Google policy does not permit ad text that advocates against an individual, group or organization.”
The question remains, said Greene, “If Google allows ads advocating against Tom DeLay, does this mean that Google does not recognize Tom DeLay as being a human being?”
