“BIGOT”: Google Busted Yet Again for Smearing Republicans In Search Result “Knowledge Panel”

If Google’s explanation for that incident strained credulity, this most recent incident degrades the tech giants credulity even more

Published

Just one week after Google was exposed by Vice News for including “nazism” as an ideology of the California Republican Party in their so-called “knowledge panel” function in their search results, Vice has discovered yet another incident of biased and misleading information about Republicans.

Now, it has been discovered that an adamantly pro-Trump Republican lawmaker’s “knowledge panel” used a dated picture of her–with the words “BIGOT” emblazoned across it. 

Seriously, Google? You’re well on your way to global dominance and really can’t develop an algorithm to reject pictures of lawmakers with photoshopped words across them for your little knowledge panels?

Trending: NEVER FORGET: Bernie Was Asked to Leave Hippie Commune for Refusing to Work

Last week, they explained their “nazi” error like so:

“This was not the result of any manual change by anyone at Google. We don’t bias our search results toward any political party. Sometimes people vandalize public information sources, like Wikipedia, which can impact the information that appears in search.”

“We have systems in place that catch vandalism before it impacts search results, but occasionally errors get through, and that’s what happened here. This would have been fixed systematically once we processed the removal from Wikipedia, but when we noticed the vandalism we worked quickly to accelerate this process to remove the erroneous information.”

“Everyone sort of deserves the benefit of the doubt, but given the propensity for liberals — and Google is without a doubt on the left — to call folks on the right ‘Nazis,’ it strains credulity to call this little fiasco a complete and total accident. Though anything is possible,” wrote Michael Cantrell of Flag and Cross. 

If Google’s explanation for that incident strained credulity, this most recent incident degrades the tech giants credulity even more, considering it was discovered just a week later by the same publication that was clearly looking for it.

How many more faulty “knowledge panels” are there out there, “informing” untold numbers of global citizens of biased and misleading facts?

Allum Bokhari of Breitbart News has the story on the latest incident:

Days after a story which showed it displayed “Neo-Nazism” next to search results for the California Republican Party, Vice has discovered that Google also displayed an image labeled “BIGOT” next to searches for North Carolina State Senator Trudy Wade.
“If you search “Trudy Wade” on Google, the search giant displays an old photo in the “knowledge panel” of its search results with “BIGOT” superimposed in big red letters” reported Vice.

The image is now removed.

Google apologized to Sen. Wade in a statement on social media.

Bokhari points to Google’s reliance on another highly biased platform for the clear prevalence of biased and downright false information in their results: Wikipedia. That’s what they blamed themselves, after all.

That ideology display was due to Google’s reliance on Wikipedia, an imprecise and easily-manipulated online encyclopedia, to source information for their “knowledge panels”, which often appear on the right of search results, containing key information about a subject.

In this case, the “BIGOT” image next to search results for Sen. Wade came from a 2012 blog post from a progressive activist, who opposed Sen. Wade’s support for traditional marriage.

And yet, for some reason, it’s all right-wing sites that get accused of “fake news”…

REPORT: AOC’s Chief of Staff Was Hired After Funneling Money Through Her Boyfriend

Here we go…

This report is absolutely wild.

It is also entirely believable given the way Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempts to skirt the truth.

Apparently, AOC’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, was given his position on Alexandria’s staff after funneling cash for her campaign through her boyfriend, Riley Roberts.

“A rich guy used a PAC to pay @AOC’s boyfriend $6,000 when her campaign was running out of money. After AOC won, she gave that rich guy a job in her office. Follow me on a journey,” author Luke Thompson said.

“Last week, @AOC and her Chief of Staff @saikatc (the rich guy in question) freaked out on me when I pointed out it looked like she’d hired her boyfriend. I did some digging in the FEC. Turns out Saikat has “hired” her boyfriend, before…just not to do any actual work,” he said.

[email protected] paid Brand New Congress LLC, which @saikatc owns, for strategic consulting. @BrandNew535, the PAC Saikat ran in parallel to his LLC, turned around and paid Riley Roberts – the boyfriend – the same amount as its sole “marketing consultant”. How swampy,” he said.

“The payments to Roberts are the largest payments made by @BrandNew535 to any person or group other than Brand New Congress LLC. Oh, and Roberts doesn’t work in marketing,” Thompson said.

More from Medium:

A quick tour through AOC’s campaign expenditures reveals the extent to which Brand New Congress midwifed her campaign into existence, precisely as the FAQ described above would have it. But AOC’s campaign was different from the others backed by Brand New Congress PAC, and not simply because she won. Like other candidates, AOC paid Brand New Congress LLC for strategic consulting, in her case totaling $18,880.14. Unlike in the other cases, Brand New Congress PAC turned around and paid her boyfriend as a “marketing consultant”.

Indeed, while Brand New Congress PAC’s ten largest expenditures were paid to Brand New Congress LLC for “strategic consulting,” a sum that totaled $261,165.20 over the course of the campaign, its eleventh and twelfth largest expenditures were paid to Riley Roberts.

Brand New Congress PAC paid Roberts $3,000 on August 9th:

Eighteen days later, AOC’s campaign paid Brand New Congress LLC $6,191.32:

A month later Brand New Congress PAC then turned around and paid Riley Roberts another $3,000.

Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff is a supporter of a man who was an “ally of Adolf Hitler.”

Check it out, per Liberty Nation:

-Bose was an ally of Adolf Hitler and met with him personally in 1942.

-Bose founded the Free India Legion (FIL) made up of troops captured by Nazi Field Marshal Rommel’s Afrika Korps.

-The FIL swore an oath to Hitler and was under SS command.

-Bose teamed up with the Japanese in 1943.

-Bose was an admirer of the USSR and sought to implement its authoritarian practices in India.

Chicago Police RUIN Jussie Smollett’s Day, Officially Charge Him With Felony [Details]

He’s toast!

Things just went from bad to worse for “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

After being caught orchestrating a hate crime against himself and lying about it on national TV during an interview with Robin Roberts, Jussie has now been declared a “suspect” by the Chicago Police Department.

From Daily Wire:

Chicago law enforcement officials have officially declared actor Jussie Smollett to be a suspect in a criminal investigation on Wednesday for allegedly committing the felonious act of filing a false police report.

Chicago Police Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi tweeted: “Case Update: Jussie Smollett is now officially classified as a suspect in a criminal investigation by #ChicagoPolice for filing a false police report (Class 4 felony). Detectives are currently presenting evidence before a Cook County Grand Jury.”

Smollett has also officially been charged with a felony:

Check this out:

In 2007, Smollett “provided false information” to police after receiving a DUI.

From Daily Wire:

Jussie Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license, and providing false information to law enforcement officials in 2007, according to new reports released on Tuesday.

“Tuesday the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office confirmed that in August of 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement,” CBS Chicago reported. “He was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail. Officials at the office could not confirm which Smollett chose. A spokesman for the Chicago Police Department said the department was already aware of the plea.”

This latest revelation follows several significant developments over the last few days, and could end up impacting how prosecutors handle potential false report charges.

Senators Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ) are both running for president. The chances that either person secures the Democrat nomination are slim, at best.

After hearing that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was the “victim” of a “hate crime,” both Booker and Harris rushed to slam the “attack” as a “modern day lynching.”

Of course, the country now knows that Smollett faked the attack and paid two brothers to orchestrate the whole thing.

Now, Harris is at a loss for words when confronted by a reporter asking about Smollett:

WATCH:

Check out Booker:

Jussie said he was baffled that people didn’t believe him. Apparently, he’s just not that good of an actor, huh?

If Smollett was being written off the show prior to this insane “hate crime,” what will happen to him now?

Will social justice warriors voice their support? Will he maybe get his own spinoff?

How about Smollett pays for his crime and serves his time? That seems like the most appropriate response.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for lefties to say they were sorry for jumping on the Jussie bandwagon, though.

They’ll hold strong togetther and attempt to steer the conversation toward “racism in America.” They’ll make it seem as if Smollett is the true victim.

Count on it.
