Memeorandum Goes Fox News

Is it just me or has the Google search engine equivalent for political news known as Memeorandum gone all right wing politics like Fox News? Granted the latest news cycle is all about things happening in the right side of the political aisle but my thoughts are that the news from Memeorandum has been hijacked. Spin is spin and it is what it is.

It almost seems that every post that they point you toward lately is and has been extremely right wing. Just saying. I’ll be looking for a new source for political news. I hear that Real Clear Politics is good. Checking them out and will keep you posted.

It's about the algorithm that Google uses. If you do a search on certain terms and click on some of the returned links, but not others it records that information. That helps push those links higher in the list since actual usage is showing those links to be "the most appropriate" for those search terms. So if you're the type of person who does a Google search on news items instead of say just going straight to a news source (NPR, CNN, or Mother Jones) then you're impact is higher.
