I have a touchy subject here and don't really know what the right answer is.
I have a mate who has an article about him in the mainstream media and this article (over 6 months old) is appearing in the google search results right below his business name. It contains some incorrect information and he is trying to move on with life.
Does anyone know if the mainstream media webmasters consider do not crawl requests? He is hesitant to contact them as he feels it may just stir up a hornets nest. He doesn't want the article removed from the web, just the google results.
