    New Whistleblower Allegation: YouTube Manipulated ‘Federal Reserve’ Search Results in Response to MSNBC Host’s Complaint

    Google-owned YouTube manually adjusted search results for “Federal Reserve” after MSNBC host Chris Hayes complained about the prominence of anti-Fed videos in the top results, according to a source who worked at the tech company.
    Google allegedly added the search term “Federal Reserve” to a “blacklist” file of “controversial” YouTube search queries. This caused search results for the term to be re-ranked to favor YouTube-approved mainstream media sources.

    Breitbart News exclusively reported on the existence of the YouTube search blacklist in January and revealed that the term “abortion” had been added to it.

    According to the same source who provided Breitbart with that information, the term “Federal Reserve” has also been on the blacklist since October of last year – and it’s all because someone at Google read a series of Chris Hayes tweets.

    "Informationally toxic" indeed ...

    “My favorite example of how informationally toxic YouTube’s algorithm is this” said Hayes. “Imagine you’re a high school freshman and got a school assignment about the Federal Reserve.”
    At first, I was like, "Never mind the Federal Reserve. Why doesn't this guy have a problem with students using YouTube, of all things, as a source for reliable information and unbiased information about ... well, about anything at all?"

    But then I remembered - he's some kind of "journalist" (or teleprompter-reader, or something) for MSNBC ...

    YouTube is owned by Google. The "Don't be evil" company. Surely they would not engage in capricious and arbitrary censorship!
    I compiled a "brief" history of events since October 2008 that are defining the global currency war and the role that gold is playing:

    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?
