The all-powerful Internet search engine company Google says that it is not rigging its system to reduce the visibility of the term “Crooked Hillary,” BREITBART reports.
Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land discovered that there is no Automatic Recommendation in the Google Search bar for “Crooked Hillary.” In contrast,”Lying Ted” comes up as a recommendation as soon as people started typing “Lying.”
Is Google, led by chairman and major Clinton booster Eric Schmidt, trying to keep “Crooked Hillary” from going viral in the same damaging way as Trump’s other nicknames? BREITBART shares that Google defended itself in a statement to Search Engine Land:
Autocomplete predictions are produced based on a number of factors including the popularity of search terms. Our systems are periodically updated to improve Search, and our users’ search activity varies, so the terms that appear in Autocomplete may change over time.
