Mike Adams and his website NaturalNews.com see their roots in Y2K scams nearly 18 years ago and for the last decade have been churning out bogus stories ranging from antivaccine pseudoscience to outright character assassination. More recently, Adams has become a die-hard Donald Trump supporter and a rising star in the alt-right.
He is rather high-profile which makes Google banning “Natural News” (http://naturalnews.com/) from its search somewhat risky from a PR view. The site is often linked to by those who believe in the fake news he peddles, so anti-vaxers lap up whatever rubbish emerges from his frontal lobes. Its ranking used to be rather high and getting higher as the average worldwide IQ drops and people lose objectivity.
Now if you do a search for NaturalNews.com on Google, you get Adams’ Facebook page. Google has been thorough. The ban also applies to the UK too.
Of course, he is seeing it as the forces of darkness moving against him in a terrible conspiracy:
“Late last week, I received a direct threat that warned if I did not take steps to destroy Alex Jones and InfoWars, I would be targeted for destruction in a campaign of smears, censorship and defamation. Instead of giving in to the enemy, I refused to take the bait and went public with details of the threat, warning everyone in the new media that sinister forces were now being pursued to undermine and silence every anti-establishment (and pro-Trump) voice on the internet. True to form, today the entire Natural News website has been blacklisted by Google, entirely without warning,” Adams moaned.
