Google News Blacklist Revealed, Websites Listed
Google Busted

Project Veritas put out a new video that’s nearly 20 minutes long, featuring the Google whistleblower Zachary Vorhies, who let loose more than 900 pages in a document package proving that Google does engage in biased censorship, and that there are various websites that Google keeps on a blacklist to suppress in order to prevent people from accessing those sites when searching up certain kinds of content.

The full documents can be accessed via a 200MB file over on the Project Veritas website, or you can see a brief listing of the websites in the video below, which was published on the Project Veritas YouTube channel.

There’s a list of the websites on the blacklist that you can view below:

# END: sites flagged for peddling hoax stories.

Take note that just because these sites are on the blacklist doesn’t mean that they’re completely removed from Google’s search index. What it means is that – on Google News – these sites are suppressed when search queries are entered, and they will appear lower in the search rankings compared to other sites that have more “authority” within Google’s website ranking system.

Additionally, given that these sites aren’t outright banned, it means Google has plausible deniability to state that they aren’t overtly censoring these sites, just downranking them, even though the results are pretty much the same.

TheQuartering does a video highlighting some of the unique sites blacklisted by Google News.

Now some of those sites are not actual news sites but torrents and content propagation feeds or aggregators, which makes sense why they would be blacklisted, such as the Google Play store or Google Drive content. However, other sites such as Christian Post, Daily Caller, or Red State have been approved for and been on Google News for years. In fact, in the case of One Angry Gamer, we’ve never once received any notices of content violations regarding Google News content, and when Google was approached about this issue last year along with other website owners whose sites were being shadow-banned, Google’s tech support in the webmaster forum [backup] couldn’t provide answers as to why the sites were being shadow-banned.

Furthermore, for the Google News blacklist it means that the sites are shadow-banned, so that when you search up newsy topics either the information won’t appear at all or will only appear under very specific circumstances. We explained how the blacklist worked last year when they talked about Google’s utilization of the shadow-ban list, warning webmasters about what they can do to test if they’re on the list and whether their site was being shadow-banned.

We followed up that report with another report in April of 2019 detailing how there was a memo that leaked to the Daily Caller revealing that various “problematic” websites were on a Google blacklist.

In June of 2019 we did another report highlighting additional sites that were being added to the blacklist, shadow-banning their content from appearing on GNews, this included crypto-currency websites like Blockmanity.

One Angry Gamer in particular was added to the blacklist after publishing articles highlighting journalistic malfeasance from websites like Buzzfeed and Kotaku, who purposely misreported the Jessica Price firing to misinform readers. This originally took place back in August of 2018, but One Angry Gamer was taken off the blacklist roughly between March 13th, 2019 and June 6th, 2019. The site was added back to the blacklist just before the start of the E3 2019 press conferences.

While Centrists™ will attempt to justify why these sites should be censored and blacklisted, they will completely forgo any reasoning as to why sites like Kotaku, Polygon, Buzzfeed, CNN, or the Huffington Post aren’t on Google’s blacklist, even though they regularly publish misleading or outright fake news stories.

For instance, Kotaku et al were not added to Google’s blacklist after going out of their way to create a fake news story about the Overwatch e-sports player Ellie.

We did an entire series of articles about the Ellie situation, highlighting all of the websites that partook in spreading the fake news about an e-players player that was never real.

What’s most interesting is that while Google has various rules on not spamming, producing hateful content, or engaging in deceptive practices, they actually don’t have a rule on Google News about producing fake news. You can check the content policies for yourself.

It’s an easy out for propaganda websites to avoid being penalized for spreading untrue information. But what about when sites do publish content that do violate Google News’ rules? Such as when the Huffington Post got trolled into publishing an anti-white screed as a way to prove that the editorial team exercised sociopolitical biases to push an agenda; the site was neither punished nor penalized by Google for violating their “Hateful Content” policy, which explicitly states…

“We do not allow content that promotes violence or harassment against an individual or group based on ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.”

This would likely fall under the “refusal to deal” category of antitrust violations via the Sherman Act, as detailed on the FTC website, since Google is selectively allowing certain websites and businesses to grow while suppressing other sites unfairly.

As outlined in Refusal to Deal section of the single-firm conduct section of the antitrust laws, it states…

“For instance, if the monopolist refuses to sell a product or service to a competitor that it makes available to others, or if the monopolist has done business with the competitor and then stops, the monopolist needs a legitimate business reason for its policies. Courts will continue to develop the law in this area.”

In this case, Google absolutely does run a monopoly on search engine and digital news services. They are selectively censoring news from certain outlets, but refuse to say why. We all know what the answer is, but then it would mean that Google is outing themselves as having an ideological bias in terms of how they provide content to users through their search services, and it would coincide with the leaked footage of them revealing that they intend to use their biases to sway the 2020 elections.

It was already revealed that Google used their search algorithms to help bolster the Democrat party during the 2016 and 2018 elections, according to an independent study.

Vorhies submitted the documents to the Department of Justice, which is currently engaging in an antitrust investigation into Google, as reported by USA Today.

Whether anything will come of this or not remains to be seen, but at least Vorhies did his part in getting the information to Project Veritas, and Project Veritas did their part in exposing Google’s blacklist and biases to the public.
