Google Censors Australian Political Party Over Online Ads

The Australian Sex Party has threatened Google with legal action after the search engine refused to run its ads on the eve of tomorrow’s Melbourne by-election.It comes after Sex Party ads were blocked by Google at the last federal election because the company – which is typically opposed to censorship – perceived the text as too racy (the ads were reinstated by Google the day before the election).
