|Cache Translate Page||Owen Williams' sad tale of Google News reminds me of the scene in The Godfather where the undertaker Bonasera visits Don Corleone on the day of his daughter's wedding. Bonasera's daughter has been raped. He went to the police, they tried the rapist, but he got off with a suspended sentence. Bonasera seeks justice from the Godfather who gives his first great speech in the movie. "We've known each other many years, but this is the first time you ever came to me for counsel or for help. I can't remember the last time that you invited me to your house for a cup of coffee, even though my wife is godmother to your only child. But let's be frank here. You never wanted my friendship. And you were afraid to be in my debt." In Williams' tale of woe, the Godfather is the open web, other news orgs, his readers, and the legal system is Google. We have to work together Owen. The web made all you do possible, you can't go over its head to Google to get what you think you need. And though you disparage RSS in your piece, it, or something exactly like it, will be the glue that routes around Google and Facebook and eventually makes networked news work. BTW, the dialog is on Wikipedia and the video clip is on Youtube.|

|My Google News feed is infected Cache Translate Page||How do I convince Google News that I don't care about K*lie J*nner or the K*rdashians? (names obscured for reasons that will become clear)|
Google News serves me fresh articles about them on a daily basis, not just in the Entertainment section, but specifically in the For You section (along with a few other subjects that Google is weirdly fixated on as apparent interests of mine).
I am the only person that uses my computer/phone/browser. I have never, to my knowledge, performed any Google searches about the K*rdashians, nor deliberately clicked on any article about them. In fact, I make a point of giving a thumbs down ("see fewer stories about this") to every single one of those articles that shows up in my feed. I've been doing this for months. It seems to have no effect, like those disconnected crosswalk buttons that serve only to provide the illusion of control. It's gotten to the point where I'm starting to suspect that Google sees these downvotes as a form of engagement, and hence interest.
It seems like Google's profile of me has become permanently infected. This would bother me less if I wasn't actively repulsed by the subject in question. I don't want to dedicate any mental energy to the K*rdashians, and I resent that Google keeps placing these daily reminders on my digital doorstep, apparently because it thinks I like them. Is there any way to convince it otherwise?
The names have been obscured because I'm paranoid that, when the post confirmation hits my gmail, it'll worsen the problem.
