Google Shuts Down Anti-Obama Sites on its Blogger Platform

Google Shuts Down Anti-Obama Sites on its Blogger Platform
By Warner Todd Huston

It looks like Google has officially joined the Barack Obama campaign and decided that its contribution would be to shut down any blog on the Google owned Blogspot.com blogging system that has an anti-Obama message.

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!

Where is the First Amendment when you need it?

I would like to know which sites were "eliminated." Were they just the opposition voicing opinions against his views and policies, or comments more vile like those comments on Dem Underground?
