The Obama Deception reaches #1 on Google Video
Just hours after this reaching top spot, the Obama Deception was and continues to be censored by Google Video.
As of March 13, 2009 Alex Jone’s latest film, The Obama Deception, made it to the top spot on Google’s Hot videos’ page after being out for only two days. The DVD is not even officially available until March 15, 2009, but the video was released for Prison Planet Tv members for download and in high-quality streaming flash on March 11, 2009. Jones is frequently criticized for over-sensationalizing current events and fear-mongering on his radio show in order to sell his merchandise, but his critics fail to mention that Jones allows all of his documentaries and various media and to be copied and distributed for free.
But back to Google Video for a moment. There was a point in 2007 when movies like the Obama Deception, commonly referred to patriot or truth movies, were so popular that they dominated the top twenty spots Google’s former top 100 chart. For some reason, Google changed their page format and took away the comment section possibly due to spamming, removing page views and you basically had to click through several pages to even find out what either the most shared, most viewed, or most blogged videos were.
While Google has been charged with erasing the number of ratings and has even deleted certain truth movies, but they are no where near as bad as YouTube, Facebook and Blogger which are currently being policed by the Anti-Defamation League and the Jewish Internet Defense Force. It will be interesting to see how other major websites will deal with the Obama Deception over the next few weeks but for Google the proverbial cat is out of the bag. In the meantime, the Prison Planet forum is keeping tabs on any censorship regarding the movie.
