Yahoo! still hasn't forgiven Dixie Chicks

As you can see here, Yahoo! still hasn't forgiven the Dixie Chicks for their anti-war stance. While they have put links on the names of the other artists performing at an upcoming Katrina-relief fund, Yahoo! has opted to not let news readers easily search for stories related to the Dixie Chicks.

Although some of the other artists may indeed have been against the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Dixie Chicks were put front and centre, and many media outlets decided not to play their music. Yahoo! obviously does not want people to know this.

...also, this is all speculation on my part...
