Autism – Google Suppressing News? The Vanishing News Story – Can You Find The Story On Google?

Yesterday the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper carried a detailed two page feature story by respected journalist Sue Reid about the ruling in the Italian Court that Merck’s MMR II vaccine caused autism in an Italian child [see link to the story].  This is the same vaccine used in the UK since 1988 and USA since 1984.  MMR: A mother’s victory. The vast majority of doctors say there is no link between the triple jab and autism, but could an Italian court case reignite this controversial debate? By Sue Reid15 June 2012

  1. hi – didn’t have any prob finding the story. I searched UK daily mail MMR – came up in second position after an age of autism cover of the same story.

    [ED: Thanks. Any chance you can copy and paste the search link so others can try it out? The story seems not to be coming up on the UK Google News searches].

  2. A search on “valentino bocca mmr italy” fails to bring up the story:

  3. A search on “mmr italian court autism” fails to bring up the story.

  4. But I thought you were asking about finding it in the UK mail ? I’m just giving you feedback on what I got anyway. I’m not in disagreement with you. Search terms obviously make a difference.

    [ED: Hi. Thanks. Our comments are crossing. We are just posting some of the Google News searches in the UK – the story is just not coming up. But maybe others are getting different results?]

  5. A search on “autism mmr valentino bocca” fails to bring up the story.

  6. I just searched google ( not google news – is that different ? I don’t use it as such, just your standard google search page ) using ” valentino bocca mmr italy ‘ and the daily mail story came up first, followed by the next 5 positions with related references to the Mail’s story.

    [ED: Thanks. Google News is a different search. The ordinary search brings this up first time. Searches on different Googles [eg. India, UK, France, USA] can also give different results].

  7. I just found google news, both the australian edition and the US edition, ( I never use it as I said ) and searched using only ‘ mmr italy ‘ and the Mail’s story came up in the first two positions.

    What edition of google news are you using and I’ll test it at this end ?

    [ED: Try google.co.uk]

  8. Well, I’m not pulling your leg. They are the responses I genuinely got here.

    I wouldn’t get too fussed about it. The story and the court case details won’t be going away.

    [ED: Except on Google News!! Ha. We still cannot get it to come up here. Will try .fr .in etc]

  9. Well – how about that. Searching for the a quoted phrase from the first sentence of the story on UK Google News search still does not bring up the story!!

    This is what we searched on “At nine months old, Valentino Bocca was as bright as a button.”

    Only one hit!! And that is to Age of Autism’s report of yesterday’s Daily Mail story. Click here to try yourself.

    Check it out yourself – but if you do check also check to see whether the Google redirects the search to your own country’s version of Google News search [eg UK will be google.co.uk and France will be google.fr]

  10. Is “Hunt the news” a new Google internet game? Can anyone in China get this story on Google News China?

    Try searching on the quoted phrase from the first line of the story – “At nine months old, Valentino Bocca was as bright as a button.”

    We would love to hear what success you get. This is crazy.

  11. Found the story on UK online but I put Different words into google

    [ED: Can you post the link to your search? Was it a Google News search or an ordinary Google web search? the ordinary search brings up the story as first hit. The Google News search seems not to. And that is in several countries – see links in our comments here.]

  12. Not coming up on Google News France.

    Try this Google .fr search
    for the quoted phrase “At nine months old, Valentino Bocca was as bright as a button.”

    Just the one hit – to Age of Autism.

  13. Google News India – .co.in.

    Search for the quoted phrase “At nine months old, Valentino Bocca was as bright as a button.”

    Just the one hit – to Age of Autism.

    The Daily Mail story still not coming up.

  14. Same for Google News Germany .de .

    Search for the quoted phrase “At nine months old, Valentino Bocca was as bright as a button.” Just one hit to Age of Autism. No Daily Mail story.

  15. I have both Yahoo and Google email alerts for autism. This story was the top listing in Yahoo, and it did not show at all in Google.

    Yahoo wins this one hands down.

    [ED: Thanks. So not even coming up on Google News alerts!!!]

  16. Alexander appears to be right. We did a Yahoo News search on the quoted phrase “At nine months old, Valentino Bocca was as bright as a button.”

    The story comes up immediately and is the first and only hit on Yahoo News.

  17. Same thing on Bill Gates’ Microsoft’s Bing search engine – no results for Bing News but the story comes up on an ordinary Bing web search.

    ORDINARY BING WEB SEARCH
    http://www.bing.com/search?q=%E2%80%9CAt+nine+months+old%2C+Valentino+Bocca+was+as+bright+as+a+button.%E2%80%9D+&form=MOZSBR&pc=MOZI

  18. Noticed no direct link to Mail article last night, only link to AoA article on the Mail report. Presumably google corp does not have to explain itself. Once again evidence suggesting that vaccine damage stories are censored.

  19. Clicked on your link and the story came up – no problem. It may have been just a temporary glitch.

    [ED: did you do a normal Google search or a Google News Search? We just tried the searches again and still get just the one hit – Age of Autism reporting the Daily Mail story.

    Can you copy and paste the link to your search into a comment here?]

  20. Great game – same thing on Google News Poland – click here to see yourself. Just the one hit to Age of Autism – The UK’s Daily Mail newspaper does not exist in Google’s cyberspace alternative universe.

    What else are they suppressing? This is bizarre.

    So have Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin become the new Rupert Murdoch’s of Century 21?

  21. Here is a bizarre one – a Google search on Daily Mail autism brings up hits for all sorts of stories in the Daily Mail about autism with the most recent seeming to appear first and then going back in time – but yesterday’s story just does not seem to be included even though it is the most recent.

  22. I went into google news. It was not there as a top story but I just put MMR into the search and got it straight away.

    [ED: Thanks. Tried again and did the search you did on MMR in Google News [.co.uk] but still no hit on yesterday’s Daily Mail story. Which Google did you search on? .co.uk or somewhere else?

    Can you copy and paste the search link into a comment so we and others can try it?]

  23. On May 17th 1993 ,my daughter was given MMR11 with 5 other vaccines hidden in the syringe. We had taken a healthy child to the clinic and left there with a terribly disabled child. Vaccines can be deadly and should be properly researched before use preferably on the makers themselves.

  24. The story came right up with this specific link, but it did not come up with just “Sue Reid” or “MMR.”

  25. Noticed no direct link to Mail article last night, only link to AoA article on the Mail report. Presumably google corp does not have to explain itself.
    I have both Yahoo and Google email alerts for autism. This story was the top listing in Yahoo, and it did not show at all in Google.

  26. Sounds like the Italian court decision article needs to be individually forwarded to every single senator and congressman, both at the state and federal level, so that they can not deny hearing about it as it didn’t make the news, as well as the MMRII whistleblower lawsuit info. As someone once said, it’s not what you don’t know, it’s what you don’t know that you don’t know . . .
