I think "Visualize Zip Codes" is even cooler than this.

Hi there...

You have a quadrillion posts about google. How about important issues like the way google chooses to index and display news from far-left sites as fact? I have heard they are highly selective (their selection is manual) in their news sources. Is this true?

Seems to me more important that whether google videos use one format or the other, or pixel sizes of their icons.

Google News does manually select their news sources. They simply display those news sources, I don't think you can say they display them as "fact." Once, they had a far-right source (National Vanguard), so they have sites from different positions included. If you have any samples of them having a bias, I'd like to hear the facts, and then I do indeed report on this and consider it newsworthy.
