Fox News times a Google

So I typed in "John Kerry" into Google and got the White House Press Room.

Google hires neo-con headbanger

The company that prides itself on "Doing No Evil" isn't taking any chances with its latest executive appointment. Dan Senor, the company's new Global Communications and Strategy VP, has a CV guaranteed to have Register columnist Otto Z Stern firing a celebratory fusillade skywards from his compound in New Mexico.

A former Senior Associate at the Carlyle Group, Senor was briefly Scott McLellan's deputy as White House spokesman before becoming head of the the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq's information department. The White House web site bills him as Senior Advisor to Presidential Envoy L. Paul Bremer III. Fox News hired Senor as a panelist in February. While in Iraq Senor showed his loyalty by going jogging in a Bush-Cheney '04 tracksuit.

Now most of the the left websites use google advertising on their sites. Should Google go the way of Fox News, do we start pulling them?

Blogspot is owned by Google... do we dart? Could this be the end of Web Freedom of Speech?
