Guardian Articles Also Affected By Google’s New ‘Right to Be Forgotten’ Policy

First, BBC economics editor Robert Peston found a 2007 blog post about an ousted Merrill Lynch director scrubbed from Googles search results. Now, The Guardian has had six articles removed from European search, after the courts ruled that Google must honor requests to take out certain results. Three of the articles were about a Scottish Premier League referee, Dougie McDonald. McDonald, per The Guardians description, was found to have lied about his reasons for granting a penalty in a Celtic v Dundee United match, the backlash to which prompted his resignation. Much like the Peston article, as there was only one person mentioned in the piece, it is clear who requested their removal. Again, Googles policy of removal from search comes into question.
