Does Google News and News Search Censor News ?

Is Google Resorting to Censorship or is it Commercially Motivated selective News Spotting? 
Or is it 
Based on Google Analytic s Traffic Data ?      


Dear Google India, The Telegraph Calcutta 

&

 Google News India,

 Please PONDER


WHAT & WHY IS THIS HAPPENING ???
             


When I started using http://news.Google.co.in I always found The Telegraph, Calcutta links especially  those in the Section "news near you " created by me . I have created some special tabs which gives me weather, cricket, technology, West Bengal and a special Music tab for news. since last week , I suddenly observed, that I was no longer finding any news link from The Telegraph, Calcutta. 


I posted this message to The Telegraph on their  " 30 Unputdownable YearsFacebook page created on 7th July, 2012 on their 30Th anniversary.



I have observed The Telegraph stories are kept out of Google News Page, what is more frightening is I have Bengal & Kolkata Tabs, even there every other paper except The Telegraph is thrown up. This is a serious matter. Will you please take this up with Google authorities. The Telegraph has eexcellent articles By Sunanda Datta-Ray, Ruchir Joshi, Shashi Tharoor, Ramchandra Guha and Ashoke Mitra which Indians won't discover, IF GOOGLE SUPPRESSES THEM IN News Search. I feel this the most ATROCIOUS FORM OF CENSORSHIP , Regards & Yes Thanks for a wonderful reading experience. I always start The Telegraph, from Op-ed page Thank You The Telgraph . I am blogging this right away


My today's victim is news.Google.co.in , for suppressing news links from the most well designed and filed Indian newspaper on the web and THE BEST Eastern India & Calcutta (they still refuse to use Kolkata) Newspaper The Telegraph, which has just completed 30 Unputdownable Years .  On Google news the only West Bengal & Kolkata stories from Times of India, The Hindu, Economic Times , Hindustan Times, Moneycontrol.com NDTV.com , Daily News and Analysis Zee News and surprise surprise, Dainik Bhaskar News !!!  This appears VERY STRANGE THIS. What do you think ?


                      Please check and give me a feedback if I am right or wrong. Is it my imagination, or true. Is it only happening to me due to some browser settings, or is it a universal experience ?


                       As proof I append screen shots of my Google News page for you to verify, whether what I write, is a figment of my imagination, or Truth.
