Hi Michelle,Read the entire article here.
Thank you for your note. We have reviewed www.michellemalkin.com but cannot include it in Google News at this time. We do not include news-related blogs or other news-related sites that are written and maintained by a single individual. Similarly, we do not include sites that do not have a formal editorial review process. We appreciate your taking the time to contact us and will log your site for consideration should our requirements change.
The Google Team
I enjoy reading Michelle's blog. And the wife and I enjoy watching her appearances on TV. Just this week, while Michelle was on Fox & Friends and I was walking through the living room, the wife stopped me, pointed to the TV and said "I like her." The wife doesn't read blogs (even mine) and didn't know her from the blog. The point is, we like her. And when I read of her difficulties with Google, I e-mailed her and offered to help:
Regarding your being excluded from Google News as a news source, consider the following:I'll let you know if she responds.
Google excludes "sites that are written and maintained by a single individual." To resolve this problem, I offer my services as a Headline News Writer. My salary requirements are $ 0.25 per year, non-negotiable. If accepted, hold on to the cash until we meet at a White House dinner. (It might be a while before I get an invite there, so...)
Google does "not include sites that do not have a formal editorial review process." Again, subject to my being hired, I recommend all my submissions be glanced over once before being trashed.
These would remove the obstacles listed by Google and allow a bit of sanity into their list of blogs-as-news-sources.
If accepted for employment at the conditions stated above, let me know what forms you need.
