The Tea Party Ruined my Google Alerts

Months ago, I set up a Google Alert for the word “Tea”. For a while it worked.

Then all of the sudden, things took a turn for the worse. It became a feed for all things Tea Party.

So I shut down the alert, much to my annoyance.

Google, I want my alert back from its hijackers. Enough is enough. Fix the damn algorithm.

Bah.
