Googling for nazis

The revelation that Google includes a neo-nazi website in its news gaggle has bloggers in a tizzy. Some claim that the "diversity of opinions" represented is good, while others, like Jeff Jarvis disagree: "Is it worth knowing what nazis think is news? No, it is not. In no universe." Choosing which news sites to include is an editorial judgement according to Jarvis, and so: "When you present hate sites as news you redefine news." (BuzzMachine)
