Google News faux pas
July 23, 2007
Great post on Techcrunch showing that even Google’s not infallible when it comes to what shows on their websites.
It’s always a risk when you spider content and display automatically that one day you will pick something up that is not quite suitable for your service. In this case Google has displayed a story about President Bush’s trip to the doctor as top story. Problem is they’ve taken it from a news service which is more humour than real news. Post on Techcrunch here, shot of the offending story on Google News homepage below.
