Google pushes Dialy Kos content on default iGoogle pages

I guess that to many it's no suprise, but to me it was. I was trying out google's igoogle and by default got a page called "Politics". Here are the default feeds:

  • NPR Topics: Politics & Society
  • Daily Kos
  • Politics
  • Democracy Now!
  • NPR Topics: Politics (Twice! WTF?!)
  • - politics
  • Drudge Report
  • Yahoo! News: Politics News
  • - Politics

Thanks Google, but no thanks - who exactly decides on "default content" for users there?

Their default humor page contains "The Chimp-o-Matic" which includes an icon of George Bush - looking like he's making a monkey face. Then there are the "Daily Show Videos" and Dilbert (from the mind of an antisemite, and Ahmedinajad cheerleader - moonbat).

Keep'em coming Google - just as long as you keep us in suspense as to who you're biased towards.
