ISNA not to cover Google-related news
» سرویس: Politics - ForeignPolicy
TEHRAN (ISNA)-Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA) will not release news related to Google following the company's move to remove the name of Persian Gulf from its Google Maps Service.
One of the most simple and efficient moves to confront the biased measure is that Iranian users and media show their protest to Google managing team.
Iranian media can refuse to cover news related to the search engine by further notice due to the ambiguous move of Google.
ISNA, as a forerunner, will refuse releasing news related to Google and it hopes that Google, other organizations and sources in the world would respect historical truths of countries including Iran.
Google has omitted Persian Gulf name from its Google Maps service, claiming that it does not plan to interfere in a political issue.
The researchers recently searching for Persian Gulf in Google Maps, are led towards the position of the waterway, but the name of the Persian Gulf has been eliminated from the map.
The same thing happens when the users are searching for A-r-a-b-i-a-n Gulf. In practice, the users searching for the fake name (A-r-a-b-i-a-n Gulf) are led towards Persian Gulf position whereas the name of Oman Gulf has been mentioned clearly in the same region.
Google has refused to release any information for its move, but a Google representative has claimed that the company does not want to take a political position over the issue. The representative failed to name another geographical area whose name was deleted by Google.
Google has already conducted such biased and partial measures. It has presented explanations about the Iranian northwestern city of Tabriz in a section related to the Republic of Azerbaijan. It has also blocked some of its services for Iranian users.
