URUKNET TAKES NUMBER ONE SPOT NEWS OF ILLEGAL WAR IRAQ:Top > Society > Issues > Warfare and Conflict > Specific Conflicts > Iraq > News and Media(Source: ALEXA BROWSE)
Number One. URUKNET.INFO ITALY www.uruknet.infoI just received this e mail message from my editor in Italy, Paola of Uruknet. We are dancing. She is in her office, and I am in my kitchen.
You might remember a diary I did about a week ago "Censorship of the News in America -- Google Shuts Off Uruknet." Well, it is true, Google de-listed the number one News Source about the war in Iraq for 6 and a half days, from the 4th of June through the 10th of June, 2005. More about that below.

Some time between January and May 1999 presidential aspirant George W. Bush was talking with Mickey Herskowitz, a former Houston Chronicle sports columnist who'd been signed on to ghostwrite his autobiography. And the future president spoke unto Herskowitz, saying:
"One of the keys to being seen as a great leader is to be seen as a commander-in-chief. My father had all this political capital built up when he drove the Iraqis out of Kuwait and he wasted it. If I have a chance to invade---if I had that much capital, I'm not going to waste it. I'm going to get everything passed that I want to get passed and I'm going to have a successful presidency."Top Story Uruknet; Gary LeuppSee Also:CENSORSHIP OF THE NEWS IN AMERICA -- Google Shuts Off UruknetEarlier this year Uruknet was delisted as a result of these two articles by Michelle Malkin.Michelle Malkin: GOOGLE NEWS: NOT SO FAIR AND BALANCED

But what happened between the 4th and 10th of June was even more serious, as the articles between those dates were ghosted altogether. Even tonight if you typed Uruknet into your news search on Google, you would not find any articles listed between those dates, but if you were in Italy they would be listed.
Google has different practices in its news listing for different countries. In China the word “democracy
