Something fishy going on at Google?

Take a look at this screenshot…

Google "Hillary clinton ind" search tips showing no entries for indictment

Yes, it is your standard Google search with search tips.  Rather boring, it is so nice and clean.  Now take a look at this one…

BingHillaryClintonTips

It is the same thing, just under Bing.  I don’t know about you, but the difference is striking.  I’m not going to discuss the merits of whether or not Clinton needs to be indicted; nor will I claim that Google should be forced to include those terms in their search tips.

What this does show is that Google is indeed scrubbing search results that are negative towards Clinton.  Supposedly, the algorithm that determines those search tips is supposed to be based on what common (same for Bing).  Obviously, this is not truly the case.

Take from this what you will but that memory hole from Owell’s 1984 is a reality.
