The Google Blacklisting of The American Spectator

“Apparently Google wants to protect the American people from our polysyllabic words and occasional long sentences. and in the course of doing so, they lied to Congress. And we may be looking into them in the near future.”

So spoke R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. on learning that The American Spectator had been blacklisted by Google. Bob Tyrrell is the founder of the now-52-year-old conservative magazine that is well in the mainstream of center-right, Reagan-conservative thought. It has, over the decades, been home to prominent conservative writers who have gone on to journalistic celebrity of their own.
