GOOGLE ATTACKS SERBIAN RADICAL PARTY
Google has introduced a service that automatically translates text and webpages written in the Serbian language into English. On the surface this appears to be wonderful, but take a closer look. Here is an original webpage written in the Serbian language and here is Google's English translation of the same webpage.
Be sure to compare the two links closely. Do you notice anything odd about Google's English translation? Google has substituted Serbian Radical Party leader Vojislav Seselj's name with that of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Obviously this isn't an innocent software glitch. Somebody did this on purpose.
The first question that arises is this: If Google sees fit to mock the Serbian Radical Party by substituting its leader's name with that of Osama bin Laden, might Google also see fit to suppress web pages that favor the party and to promote web pages which denigrate it? The second question, and by far the bigger question, is this: who else, besides the Serbian Radical Party, might Google decide to target?
