HomePoliticsThe Trump Report: Google Glitch


Google Glitch

google trumpIf you searched on Google earlier this week using the search term “presidential candidates” you wouldn’t have found the results you might have expected.

The search results brought up a pictorial guide above all of the other search results with pictures of candidates with active campaigns.

Clicking on a picture brought up searches for the candidates.

Sounds good.

However, the problem was that neither Republican candidate Donald Trump nor Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson were included in Google’s results.

Results were shown for Crooked Hillary, Bernie Sanders and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, and that was it. The other two were nowhere to be found.

Google glitch Trump left out of Google search for presidential candidatesWhen asked about the ‘glitch’ Google issued a statement giving their reason for the problem that caused some candidates to disappear from its search results.

The Google spokesman said, “We found a technical bug in Search where only the presidential candidates participating in an active primary election were appearing in a Knowledge Graph result. Because the Republican and Libertarian primaries have ended, those candidates did not appear. This bug was resolved early this morning.”

Sure enough, around noon Wednesday, Trump and Johnson were both added back to the Google search results.

On this occasion we’ll give Google the benefit of the doubt. But let’s hope there are no more ‘glitches’ like this in the future. At least now they’ll know we’re watching them.
