Google Right To Be Forgotten Being Abused Already?

While this whole right to be forgotten is a good idea when used as intended, it seems that the system can still be abused.

So there is an argument that in removing the blog, Google is confirming the fears of many in the industry that the "right to be forgotten" will be abused to curb freedom of expression and to suppress legitimate journalism that is in the public interest. To be fair to Google, it opposed the European court ruling. But its implementation of it looks odd, perhaps clumsy.
