In the end, Google is a US company. A private entity, not a governmental one. No matter how much others may find it despicable they can alter their algorithms to whatever they please.
Google and other search engines were given exemption from libel lawsuits under the theory they do not censor or review anything - a protection newspapers, publications and the media does not have.
Google since has broken that deal. All exemptions for libel and slander should be eliminated as they are no longer truly "open" sources that they originally were.
