If the accusations that Google is rigging search results are true, they’re not as good as it as they could be.
It’s “fixed” now, but for the past few days, if you were to do a Google search on the phrase “pathological lying,” you got an interesting result.
When you clicked the image of Hillary you were brought to a Wikipedia image on pathological lying, which had some interesting suggestions for further reading.
By Monday morning, the image had been removed from Google. I don’t know how appropriate it would be to say that Google “fixed” or “corrected” their search results, when nearly 70 percent of voters don’t trust her. Meanwhile, if you Googled “45th us president” yesterday, the results were potentially prophetic.
As of this writing, Jill Stein now shows up resulting from that search. Interestingly enough, a month ago if you were to search the same, the result was hilarious in light of the concerns over Hillary’s health.
While Google has now “corrected” their search results, at least one of the last two could be a reality before we know it.
