Wael Ghonim and his horrific ideas of rating the credibility of the media

"Algorithms could start embedding credibility features within their ranking to give more distribution to content that is vetted as truthful or constructive. One of the living proofs of this possibility is the Google page rank algorithm, which does take credibility of a web page into account as one of the many signals for whether a specific page should be featured as the first answer when people search for a particular keyword."  Credibility features? I can imagine how that would be applied to stories about the Arab-Israeli conflict.  Now that you have liberated Egypt, I wish you would not produce such Orwellian suggestion.
