Schumer: Drop `Jew Watch'
New York/JTA — Sen. Charles
Schumer, D-N.Y., wants Google to
remove an anti-Semitic Web site
from its listings.
"Jew Watch," which promotes
anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial,
has topped Google listings when the
word "Jew" is entered into the
"As one of the most popular
search engines in the world, it's out-
rageous that Google gives top-billing
to a hate-spewing group," Schumer
said in his letter. "They need to act
immediately to give users an appro-
priate link when they seek informa-
tion on the Jewish people."
Google uses algorithms based
partly on how many sites link to a
targeted site. Entering "Jews" into
Google creates a first page topped by
"Jews for Jesus" and including "Jews
for Judaism" and "Jews for Allah."
Google has de-listed some sites,
sometimes under threat of lawsuit.
