Google Blocking Negative Search Recommendations for Islam
Alex Wilhelm posted an interesting observation on The Next Web blog… If you go to Google and start typing in the search box “Christianity is,” Google serves up suggested searches like “Christianity is a lie,” “Christianity is false,” and worse. This is true for Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism too.
But not Islam.
Type in “Islam is” and you get nothing.
If by the time you read this, it has changed or if you’re too busy to check for yourself, here’s a collection of screenshots posted to Reddit.
Is Google censoring their results because they’re afraid of ticking off Islamic extremists?
Google is now claiming this is due to a due to a bug. What do you think?
