Channel 4 - News - Amazon website censorship row

Amazon US are allegedly censoring goods that have a gay or lesbian theme. If searches are made on the front page, items wont show up at all though they will search up in the sub categories such as books etc, but without seller ratings.

Obviously people are quite upset about this if Amazon are censoring items, though they claim it's a glitch.

There has been a big Twitter backlash against Amazon (using the hashtag #amazonfail) urging people to complain.

Channel 4 News did a piece about it. I was interviewed about the Twitter part which is just before the end of the clip.
