Google is so popular it is a verb these days, people ‘Google’ things. You do a Google. Things can be worth a Google.
So you’d think they would be front and center to apologize for their site listing Nazism as one of the key ideologies of the California Republican Party.
If you search for "California Republicans" on Google, Google lists "Nazism" as one of the ideologies. pic.twitter.com/JblamxkyF7

We wish we could say this is unbelievable.
From Fox News:
When reached for comment, a Google spokesperson told Fox News the error was likely the result of vandalism on one of its sources.
“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,” the spokesperson said via email.
“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.”
Sure. Tell us another one.

We’re not holding our breath considering the first thing Google did was blame someone else for the mistake.

We’re honestly surprised they even try to hide it anymore.
Ever notice the "errors" are always against conservatives? Never against anything liberal.

If Google listed Nazism as a Liberal ideology, buildings would be on fire and people would be rioting in the streets.
An apology is on the way, correct? Hello? Anyone?

Yeah. Gonna guess that’s NOT happening anytime soon.
