Today, Mitt Romney became the latest victim of the practice known as “Google bombing.” A Google Image search of the phrase “completely wrong” brings up photo after photo of the GOP presidential nominee.
More from CNN:
A Google spokesman said the gallery of photos is the unintentional result of normal Google analytics, which produce images associated with popular phrases in news headlines and search terms, and not the result of any effort to skew the results.
In this case, Google’s algorithms picked up on news coverage of Romney saying last week he was “completely wrong” when he made controversial statements last spring that 47% of Americans were “victims” and dependent on government. Romney took some political heat for the original comments, which were captured by a hidden camera at a private fundraiser in May and made public last month.
Liberals thought it was genius:
Some people are so easily amused.
