    I voluntarily asked for Daily Kos to be removed from Google News since it was returning results from this site that quite frankly weren't up to the sort of standards I expect out of a service offering up credible news.

    I asked them to include Daily Kos a long time ago, because I was sick of seeing all the nutty right-wing sites pop up. I never saw them actually include it, though, so if they did, I missed it. In fact, a search for Daily Kos on Google News would typically turn up a post or three from Red State and friends slamming Daily Kos, and little else. I hoped that if they included at least a few decent left-wing blogs, it might help counter out all the right-wing hate and misinformation that they index. But oh well...

      frequently see the diary of the moment flit through the list of posted news stories. And frequently not the best of the diaries on a topic, it was a democratic whatever-had-just-been-submitted selection. So I can understand why Markos asked to be removed.
