Google reinstates anti-UN news agency

Backdown! Even Google does not like to be shown up for the biased and censorship-prone organization that it is:

"Google News quietly reinstated Tuesday the articles of a news service that routinely exposes U.N. corruption, a day after ran a story about the Internet giant's decision to remove Inner City Press from its search engine. Inner City Press returned to the Google News search late in the day, but much sooner than the 'couple weeks' a Google representative had promised.

The week of stories the news service ran since Google News dropped it on Feb. 13 were not restored. The news outlet, run by journalist Matthew Lee, has been critical of the U.N. and internal corruption within the organization. Lee was informed that Google News would drop his organization in a Feb. 8 e-mail."
