Red State’s Leon H. Wolf reported on several examples that show Google possibly “suppressing autocompletes of searches that are not flattering to Hillary Clinton.”
Red State compared Google’s search engine to Bing and found a notable discrepancy between the two. NTK Network included Yahoo’s search engine and found that its search results were more in line with Bing than Google.
Yahoo’s results for “Hillary Clinton Cou”
Yahoo’s results for “Hillary Clinton Li”
Google has defended its Autocomplete algorithm in the past saying:
“Our Autocomplete algorithm will not show a predicted query that is offensive or disparaging when displayed in conjunction with a person’s name.”
NTK’s staff also uncovered several other examples to go along with those of Red State; they include the following:
