Google goes targeted advert mad.

I like to listen to music and YouTube (now well mucked up by Google), filled the “suggested subjects’ based on my viewing and listening habits with 60 music suggestions leaving just 4 about current affairs (but not news).

Only here’s the thing.
I hadn’t signed in, by mistake accessing it from Tor, have no cookies on my machine, everything identifiable is swept during close down, and it seems my viewing habits consisted of the first thing I looked at, music.

So whatever analyzed me filtered out anything important like links to news services around the world.

I interpret that as corporate censorship. What think you?
