Bad Press: The Bane of Reputations Everywhere
The old adage “There’s no such thing as bad publicity” may still ring true in some circles, but for most of us, bad press rarely comes with a silver lining. And when your name is affiliated with a negative headline, event or controversy prominently featured within an online news item, your reputation and your livelihood could be facing a mountain of trouble.
Unfortunately, bad news doesn’t just stop at the publication’s website. The opportunities for people to share, re-post and blog about negative news items are abundant on the Web, something that can effectively spread that information to all corners of the Internet in a matter of hours, if not minutes.
In other words, bad news travels fast online, and can impact your reputation from a variety of angles. So, how do you not only remove negative news articles from the Web, but also any tangential posts (blogs, social media posts, etc.) that keep discussion of that information alive? How do you remove content from Google search results that furthers the spread of bad news?

The Challenge of News Article Removal
News publications present a unique and often monumental challenge when it comes to online information removal. Not only do most news organizations tend to be incredibly protective of their writers, their content and their sources, but they also rarely hesitate to invoke the First Amendment whenever legal action or otherwise threatens the integrity or existence of something they’ve published.
Couple how protective most publications are with the authoritative position many receive in online search results, and you have a real problem on your hands. Those challenges, along with the spread of bad news through other various online channels, makes news content removal and suppression seem nearly impossible, particularly if you go it alone.
Taking steps to remove negative news articles many times requires the exhaustive navigation of numerous legal and editorial loopholes; a process that can cause you a significant amount of time, money and patience. Even working to remove the news link from Google search results can end up becoming an exercise in futility.
Fortunately, we’ve designed bad news removal and suppression processes that help you restore your name and your brand online quickly and effectively.
