5 Comments on Google to Fix ‘Anti-Semitic Bug,’ Which Claims That ‘Jews Control Hollywood’

  1. It seems plausible that Google political operatives planted this result, rather than it being ‘created by complicated algorithms’ based on what we know about who controls Google and how they operate.

  2. It’s not fair to have this discussion without contributions from authentic Jewish voices … here, screenshots of journalism on this subject, Joel Stein of the LA Times on 19 Dec 2008, & Manny Friedman of the Times of Israel on 1 July 2012

  4. It’s really laughable and telling that Google is trying to hide A FACT that EVERYONE KNOWS simply because it MIGHT be “POTENTIALLY offensive” to SOME PEOPLE. I find the crap Hollywood puts out offensive — and so do many others. But I guess our feelings don’t matter. Our rights end where (((their))) feelings and money-making opportunities begin. Guess that’s what makes them the Chosen People. This is truly the Age of Capture.
