The news story GOOGLE doesn't watch you to know about

I'm confused, GOOGLE.

I know PBS receives government money so I feel it would be only fair for YOUTUBE to include the disclaimer "PBS receives money from the US government" -- the way they do with PRESS TV and others.  But I didn't realize that the US overseers -- GOOGLE, etc. -- had decided to label PBS "fake news."

Clearly, they have made that decision.

"It would essentially make the war in Iraq look like a cakewalk when we look at the cost of going to war with Iran," tells .

See that, right above?  That's from Friday's NEWSHOUR -- PBS' premier newscast. 

But go to GOOGLE NEWS and you won't find it.  Not by Tulis, not by Iran, not by Iraq -- not if you search by key terms, not even when you put in order by publication date. 

So GOOGLE has decided THE NEWSHOUR is "fake news"?  I wonder how that's going to go over?

More likely, this is just more of the ongoing censorship taking place at GOOGLE.

They ought to be ashamed.

Here's a taste of the interview that GOOGLE doesn't want you to know about.

  • Judy Woodruff:
    She is the first female combat veteran to run for president.
    Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard served two tours of duty in the Middle East before being elected to Congress in 2012.
    And she joins me now at the table.
    Welcome to the "NewsHour."
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii:
    Good afternoon.
  • Judy Woodruff:
    We should also say you are the second youngest person in this race, 38, only 38 years old.
    But what I want to ask you first is, in the last election, you were a big supporter of Bernie Sanders.
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:
  • Judy Woodruff:
    He's still running. He's running again in 2020, but now you're not supporting him. You're running on your own.
    Why now are you better qualified to be president than he is?
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:
    It's the expertise and the experience that I bring to this job. The most important job that a president has is to serve as commander in chief, to keep the American people and our country safe and secure.
    And so the experience that I bring of serving as a soldier for over 16 years, of deploying twice to the Middle East, and serving in Congress now for over six years on both the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees, have brought me that experience and understanding about the issues that face our country and our national security and the cost of war, so that I can walk in on day one to do that job, as president and commander in chief.
  • Judy Woodruff:
    So, it's an international focus? I mean, you're stressing commander in chief, rather than the multiple duties of a president.
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:
    And there are many different issues that we face here domestically, and you will hear a lot of the other candidates talking about that. But what is often not addressed is the fact that our foreign policy, the cost of these continued wasteful regime change wars that we have been waging now for so long, has a direct connection to our domestic policy and our ability to invest the resources that we need to in things like health care, education, infrastructure, and so on.
  • Judy Woodruff:
    Well, let me just quickly ask you about a couple things. Iran.
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:
  • Judy Woodruff:
    Right now, there is a lot of attention being paid to whether the Trump administration is edging closer to some sort of military confrontation with Iran.
    What would you be doing differently?
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:
    A number of things.
    I think, first, it's important to make sure the American people understand that a war with Iran would be far more costly and far more devastating than anything that we experienced in Iraq.
    What we would see is a devastating cost on our troops, my brothers and sisters in uniform, a cost on the civilians, people both in Iran and across the region, worst refugee crisis across Europe, as well as a strengthening of terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaida, further undermining our national security.
    So, it would essentially make the war in Iraq look like a cakewalk, when we look at the cost of going to war with Iran.
  • Judy Woodruff:
    So, would you — you wouldn't have pulled out of the nuclear deal?
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:
    I would not have pulled out the nuclear deal.
  • Judy Woodruff:
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:
    I think Trump needs to recognize that his strategy thus far has been counterproductive and has been a failure.
    As president, I would reenter the Iran nuclear deal, negotiate with Iran separately on the other issues that we have, and find a diplomatic way to de-escalate these tensions that we have.
  • Judy Woodruff:
    Let me ask you about Syria.
    You were criticized by a number of Democrats two years ago when you met with Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad. As you know, he's seen as a brutal dictator, overseeing the torture, the killing of hundreds of thousands of civilians in that country.
    If you are elected president, would you sit down with Bashar al-Assad again? What do you think it would accomplish?
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:
    I think it's important, for the sake of our country's national security, to keep the American people safe, and the pursuit of peace, for our president and commander in chief to have the courage to meet with leaders of other countries, whether they be adversaries or potential adversaries, in order to achieve that peace and security.
    I think it's important now for Trump to meet with the Iranian president, so that we don't face this situation, as we are now, where we are walking dangerously closer and closer to war with Iran. Unless we are serious and have the courage to hold these conversations and have these meetings, the only alternative is war.
  • Judy Woodruff:
    Russia. Would you be tougher on Russia than this administration, or not?
    You have talked about the importance of avoiding any sort of nuclear confrontation with Russia, which obviously everybody wants, but what would you do differently?
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:
    Well, as we look at this threat of nuclear war and a nuclear catastrophe, nuclear strategists say we are closer to potential of a nuclear war now than ever before.
    So it's important for us to make sure that we are de-escalating tensions with nuclear-armed countries like Russia and China, and build those relationships that are based more on cooperation, rather than conflict.
    Deal with the issues that we have, but also recognize, in situations like North Korea, and our goal of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, it is in our best interests to be able to work with countries like Russia and China to achieve that goal.

  • Now, in fairness to GOOGLE, I should note that things happen by accident as well as by intent.  There may be some new code that's not working properly.  That's a possibility.  But with GOOGLE's efforts at censorship over the last few years, they have no one but themselves to blame for any assumptions made.

    On Iraq . . .

    Various media outlets are offering -- as proof of Iran being a threat -- that Bahrain is calling for its citizens to leave Iraq and that ExxonMobile has pulled it's employees.

    Why are we supposed to accept that as proof of a threat from Iran?

    The US has moved battleships into that area, various government officials have made threatening remarks.

    If there's a reason for people to depart, it may be the blustering and bullying by the US government.  Equally true, Bahrain is often happy to assist the US government with various schemes -- in exchange for the US government repeatedly looking the other way at the various crimes Bahrain's government commits against its own people.

    There is no proof of any threat from Iran at present.
