“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?

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”…

EXPOSED: Bernie Sanders’ New Speechwriter Once Praised Maduro’s ‘Economic Miracle’

He did WHAT!?

John Salvatore

Published

There are few people currently on planet earth who are as despicable as Venezuelan tyrant Nicolas Maduro.

Due to socialism, people of his country are forced to search for meals from the back of garbage trucks. They even look for water in sewer drains.

That, apparently, did not matter to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and his 2020 presidential team.

How else can it be explained why they would hire a man who once praised Maduro, noting that “his brand of socialism achieved real economic gains?”

Click that link above to read about it.

What’s more, is that David Sirota hoped the Boston bomber was a “white American.”

You couldn’t make that up if you tried.

Will Democrats care enough to hold Bernie and company accountable? That was rhetorical.

When liberal protesters were asked if they would trade President Trump for Maduro, some people actually said, “yes.”

Think about that for a second. How uninformed can a person be?

From Daily Caller:

Hundreds of protesters descended on D.C. at Lafayette Square near the White House on Saturday to show their support for Venezuela’s embattled socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.

The “Hands Off Venezuela” protesters are not only against any sort of intervention in Venezuela, but many actually believe Maduro is a good leader.

WATCH:

Bernie’s big into “saving” the planet, yet has no problem flying private.

But spending $300,000 on private flights in a single month? Is this guy a rockstar?

From Daily Wire:

“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York,” the website VtDigger.com reported. “The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report.”

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told VtDigger.com. “This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” she said.

Jones said Sanders used private jets “to allow the senator to campaign in all of the states where candidates wanted his help and get back to Vermont in order to join the Vermont Democratic Party coordinated campaign’s final GOTV efforts. As Bernie often said while encouraging voters to get involved leading up to Election Day, this was the most important midterm election in our lifetimes and he wanted to have maximum impact.”

Sanders probably would’ve been the Democrat nominee for president in 2016 had the Democrat National Committee not worked their “magic” for Hillary Clinton.

Would Bernie have defeated Donald Trump? We’ll never know.

But what about two years from now?

Does Sanders have a chance?

WATCH: Elizabeth Warren Blames Own Family for Lying to Her About Being Native American

That’s not the best color on you, Liz!

Massachusetts Senator and 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test didn’t go as planned.

She probably figured it would definitively state she was Native American. It didn’t, though.

At best, Warren, whom President Trump refers to as “Pocahontas,” is 1/1024th Indian.

Of course, that didn’t stop Warren from claiming Indian on her state bar exam.

Now, Warren is blaming her own family.

From Daily Wire:

During a Monday night town hall event hosted by CNN’s Jake Tapper, 2020 presidential hopeful Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was asked about her “lack of presidential tact” in handling her apparently phony claims of Native American heritage.

Warren, looking uncomfortable as she responded, seemingly blamed her family for lying to her about their heritage before pivoting to health care and other issues.

Man in audience: “How do you respond to people who think that, regardless of the underlying facts, the way you handled the question of your Native American heritage was tone deaf and indicative of a lack of presidential tact?

Warren: “Well, ya know, I grew up in Oklahoma. I learned about my family from my family. And, um, based on that, that’s just kind of who I am, and I do the best I can with it.

Warren said she never used her Native American background to get ahead in life.

She wasn’t being honest. In fact, she downright lied.

Fox News’ Brit Hume tweeted the details:

This is from Elizabeth Warren’s registration for the Texas Bar, filled out in her own hand and calling herself “American Indian.” She has insisted she never used that identity to “get ahead.” You decide.

This is proof that Warren is a fraud. It’s undeniable.

More from Daily Wire:

“Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it,” The Washington Post reported. “Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.”

[…]

“The Texas bar registration card is significant, among other reasons, because it removes any doubt that Warren directly claimed the identity,” the Post added. “In other instances, Warren has declined to say whether she or an assistant filled out forms.”

Warren recently appeared on CNN. She spoke with Anderson Cooper.

During their interview, Warren appeared to not know how many branches of government there are.

Might be kind of important for a presidential candidate to know this.

Cooper: “Do you ever think, look, the realistic end game is that Republicans get two thirds of what they want and the Democrats have to settle for the shorter straw? Is that how the balance of power really works?

Warren: “Well, let’s talk about the balance of power. There are two coequal branches of government, the president of the United States and the Congress.

Of course, the three branches of government are legislative, judicial, and executive.

Democrat Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a similar “branches of government” problem not long ago.

Is there a patern here?

President Trump recently trolled Warren harder than he ever has.
