Hey, is this legal? Could competing news media apps sue Google for a breach of ethics here?

Hahahahahaha, I just spit up my coffee! Ethics and the law don't lay in the same bed ... if they did attorneys and judges would all be out of work.

Nope, Google is a private company offering a private review service within their app marketplace. They can alter their service at any time in any way. Just take a peak at the terms of service.

Not 100% positive, but I wouldn't be surprised if they got away with it solely because they can prove forums deliberately brigaded them, and most of those reviews came from people who've never even used the app. It's honestly annoying to me that the topic of them deleting the reviews is trending so high

From what I've seen of developer <-> platform relations it's all very "how we feel about you as a means of getting more users". So basically Google will do whatever it wants if the relationship is good.

Repost ratings a week, and a month from now. They aren't going to monitor it forever...and CNN is paying for this.

Let's make them waste their PR money.

It's not that costly to pay someone near minimum wage to remove every 1 star review they find.

That and it's one way to mitigate losses.

Technically the huge number of people that flocked to CNN's apps across the platforms that were giving 1 star reviews were originally manipulating the ratings, and this is google's (and Apple's) correction on the matter.
But yeah, still, fuck CNN and all the cunts that still think it's anything but fake news.

Agreed, but would Google extend this courtesy to Breitbart and other right wing need sources? Doubtful.

Apple isn't changing anything the rating is still on 1.x stars.

[–] kingE 7 points -2 points (+5|-7) ago 

indeed: ratings should be for the quality of the app and not for some political reasons. so i cant blame jewgle for correcting it.

that being said, i would do the same thing and also give the app 1 star out of spite. fuck cnn.

The quality of a news app which is heavily biast and proven to run fake stories for its own agenda? That does not sound like a 5 star app to me.

When you Yelp review a restaurant, are you only rating the physical restaurant? No, you also rate what the restaurant is serving.

Of course content is part of an app review. CNN's app is full of fake, misleading content.

It's a good looking app. But all it does is load fake news, so one star was a generous review, in my ever so humble opinion.

Of course I shouldn't have left my review and one star.... I'm gonna get flagged by the government.. I mean Google. (That's a joke there's no difference.) Oh well I already shout fuck Google at my phone, I'm already flagged most likely.

Your phone listens to everything you say. And AIs are smart enough to recognize trigger phrases like "Fuck Google" and tag you as a problematic person who doesn't eat what the MSM feeds him.
