Just yesterday, we noted how the media coverage of Clinton and Trump’s health has become “outright bizarre” (see “American Electorate Loses As Partisan Media Coverage Of Candidate Health Turns Outright Bizarre“).
In that post, we pointed out the following tweet from a New York Times columnist who was not “enthused” by all the conspiracy theories surrounding Hillary’s health and suggested that “Google should fix this.”

Apparently Manjoo was not happy with the following interview with former New York City Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, where Rudy pointed out Hillary’s health issues and suggested that people “go online and put down, ‘Hillary Clinton illness,’ and take a look at the videos yourself” (skip to 7:30 for the relevant discussion on Hillary’s health).
Well, turns out that Google might have already “fixed” it. In fact, as InfoWars points out, Twitter was abuzz yesterday with people comparing searches for “Hillary Clinton’s He” on Google vs. Bing and Yahoo. Apparently Google is convinced that people searching for “Hillary Clinton He” are really interested in Hillary’s headquarters and/or her healthcare plan from 1993.

Meanwhile, InfoWars points out that just typing “Hillary Clinton” into Yahoo! serves up numerous suggestions on Hillary’s health condition.
But we’re sure this is just an honest mistake. Google is probably so sure that Hillary’s health isn’t an issue that they just wanted to save their users some time. Outright bizarre, indeed.
