Newsbusters Loses Its Mind

Don't make a habit of reading Newsbusters too often, but I comb it every now and again to see how the librul media has been brainwashing me into thinking rapid inflation is a bad thing, or lots of people dying is undesirable, or any other crazy mantra the dreaded mainstream media has thrust upon an unsuspecting world.

Every so often, I stumble upon something truly fantastic, like this gem about a Google conspiracy to censor any anti-Obama website on the Blogger platform.

Yes, it sure seems that Google has begun to go through its many thousands of blogs to lock out the owners of anti-Obama blogs so that the noObama message is effectively squelched. Thus far, Google has terminated the access by blog owners to 7 such sites and the list may be growing. Boy, it must be nice for Barack Obama to have an ally powerful enough to silence his opponents like that!

Wow. That's possible. Alternatively, some joker could have gone through and simply clicked the "Flag Blog" button like the one you see at the top of your screen now and the automated system then shut the blogs down temporarily. But hey, who needs reason when you've got a good conspiracy theory going?

Has Obama achieved cult status? Absolutely. Is one of the leading online companies so blinded by love for him that they would begin censoring even the most mundane of criticism? Doubtful.

After a while, it seems someone tapped the author on the shoulder and he tried to backtrack or save face a bit, but even then can't quite commit.

Apparently, this campaign merely took advantage of Google/Blogger's flawed system of finding spam blogs. So, it looks like what we have here is an Obama dirty trick to shut down political opposition.

Getting warmer, but still no. You're confusing the actions of an over-zealous fan with those of the actual campaign. I'm no Obama groupie [yes, 'hope' sounds cute, but is virtually meaningless], but I must admit I haven't seen the fellas on the right frothing at the mouth this much in quite some time. He's knocked them clear of their marbles, and it's extremely entertaining.
