The New York Times is reporting that Google, Inc., has modified its algorithms so that lower quality sites do not show up high during a consumer’s online search.

Interesting. On the surface, it sounds like Google, probably the world’s most prolific content provider of content it never originally produced, is practicing their own kind of net neutrality. Yeah. Let’s call it search neutrality. Access providers must provide consumers with access to Google while Google reduces the consumer’s access to other content.
