Googling the presidential candidates Wednesday morning didn’t produce the exact results some people would expect.

Searching for the term ‘presidential candidates’ brought up a handy 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.

The only problem is that Republican candidate Donald Trump wasn’t included. Neither was Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson.

There have been posts on Twitter, Facebook, etc. And now another about google.

Google spokesperson says it was technical gltch. My problem is it took a news outlet telling them they had a scoop to do anythig about it.

What I want to know google is how primaries are effecting your search algorthims for presidential nominees.

Fishy, fishy.

I guess they think if they pretend he doesn't exist, he won't win the election

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Seems like we can figure who side they are on. But then again, a lot of things disappear surrounding the Clintons, I wouldn't be surprised if Trump actually does disappear.

Google has long been in the bag for the DNC.

I'd love to read those emails.

You gotta place the URL in the URL tag and the title between the initial URL tag and the closing one. Your link is dead.

sounds like BS to me, google can find 1 million obscure links to mushroom farming in the himalayas but they can`t manage to list the 3 or 4 people running for U.S. president? horse#

they fixed it,
here are a couple of articles.
i like how they explained it. like trumps not in a active campaign.


According to Google, the omissions were the result of a "technical bug" in the Knowledge Graph, the massive information-mapping system that provides the top results bar under many fact-based searches. "Only the presidential candidates participating in an active primary election were appearing in a Knowledge Graph result," a Google spokesperson said in a statement. "Because the Republican and Libertarian primaries have ended, those candidates did not appear. This bug was resolved early this morning."

A spokesperson for Google said that the error was caused by a technical glitch:
“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.”

I say corruption at most levels. Democracy can work, we just need to clean it and update it. It is a system, much like windows.

are you guys as appalled that Gary Johnson was also left out, would this thread have been made if it was just Gary Johnson who was left out?

This is the kind of establishment shenanigans that's going to get this guy elected.

Stuff like this makes me lean towards Trump, of course it doesn't hurt that Hillary makes him look like cub scout.
