"Bigot" Senator Trudy Wade Fires Back at Google Libs (Video)

The North Carolina Republican lawmaker, whose Google results Friday produced a photo of her with the word “bigot” across the bottom, fired back on Saturday, saying the tech company’s apology “rang a bit hollow.”

A photo of North Carolina State Senator Trudy Wade appeared in Google's Knowledge Panel with the word 'bigot' written across the bottom.

The photo that appeared on the right side of the page, first reported by Vice News, showed a photo of North Carolina State Sen. Trudy Wade with the word "bigot" written in red capital letters under her headshot.

The image result was removed later in the day, as a search of Wade’s name only provided her website, some brief background information and her party affiliation.

Wade said in a statement that after the controversial photo was discovered, an aide asked Google to remove the picture. “She was told to find and contact the original author of the photo, and the post stayed up,” the lawmaker explained.

Wade claimed that “only after Drudge Report posted it to a national audience and it began to go viral on social media did Google do the right thing.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We apologize to Senator Wade that this image appeared in the Knowledge Panel in Search.

Google Communications’ tweeted last night, in response to Vice News’ story, apologizing to Wade and adding that “Images that appear in the Knowledge Panel are either selected by verified users or are automatically sourced from sites across the web.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We encourage individuals with a Knowledge Panel to get verified to select their own image, which can help prevent this in the future. To get verified, click the link below your Knowledge Panel.</p>&mdash; Google Communications (@Google_Comms) <a href="https://twitter.com/Google_Comms/status/1002721474694733824?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 2, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

It must be “user error”. Google is unbelievable. They have no shame about the liberal bias.

“In this instance, the image was hosted on a student news blog. Upon being alerted to this issue, we immediately removed it from the Knowledge Panel,” the company continued. “We encourage individuals with a Knowledge Panel to get verified to select their own image, which can help prevent this in the future. To get verified, click the link below your Knowledge Panel.”

A Google spokesperson told Fox News on Friday that when they are notified about problems such as Wade’s, they “move quickly to fix the problem, as we did in this case.”

Quickly? Who are they kidding?

Wade represents North Carolina’s 27th district and has held the office since 2013, according to her website.

Wade said Saturday that Google’s alleged response was “disconcerting” considering a similar issue they’d had only a day before.

On Thursday, an error in Google's search results listed “Nazism” as the ideology of the California Republican Party. The error, which was first spotted by political strategist Eric Wilson, listed "Nazism" alongside other ideologies such as “Conservatism,” "Market liberalism,” “Fiscal conservatism,” and “Green conservatism.”

<div style="width:100%;text-align:center;margin:0 auto;"><iframe width="360" height="202" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dEoY7EjJe8g" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div>

The error was later fixed. A Google spokesperson told Fox News that it was likely the result of vandalism on one of its sources.

Google is blaming "vandalism" at Wikipedia for search results that incorrectly said the ideology of the California Republican Party included "Nazism."

Wikipedia's publicly available change log shows that an anonymous user added the term "Nazism" to the entry for the California GOP on May 24. The change was reversed by another editor a week later. A second, similar change on Thursday afternoon was reverted a minute later.

California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the House Republican leader, tweeted that the Google result was a "disgrace." California Republican Party executive director Cynthia Bryant called the result "libelous" in a statement and said Google and Wikipedia should "take more ownership of what is published on their sites."

Federal law exempts internet companies from liability for user-posted material as long as they promptly remove offensive items once notified. The California GOP situation, however, underscores the risks that companies like Google face when they rely on user-generated sites like Wikipedia.

"We have systems in place that catch vandalism before it impacts search results, but occasionally errors get through, and that's what happened here," Google said in a Thursday statement. "This would have been fixed systematically once we processed the removal from Wikipedia, but when we noticed the vandalism we worked quickly to accelerate this process to remove the erroneous information."

In her statement, Wade said “yesterday’s treatment of a conservative is nothing new. Not even close,” adding that she thinks this behavior “has become so common and fashionable” because of “the staggering bias of the news media.”

“The ‘mainstream’ press, where many of us once looked for truth and reliable reporting, have become cesspools of elitism and intolerance, and the troubling lack of ideological diversity in newsroom across the country has sown seeds of hatred for years against conservatives, maybe especially against conservative women,” Wade said. “It’s culminated in an unhinged assault on President Trump and anyone who dares to support him publicly. I guess it’s not terribly surprising that the liberal groupthink has started to permeate America’s corporations, too.”

My opinion - People keep searching for detailed corruption on election interference and here it is folks. The media left-leaning biased circus has now gone too far. They are stealing the election by allowing this slander of conservatives to continue.

If President Trump doesn’t put a stop to this conservatives will lose our voice completely. Roseanne was the latest victim. Yes, I said victim. We see liberals saying much worse than she did with no consequences. Do I think they should have consequences, yes, and please allow me to explain.

Although I do believe in the First Amendment with all my heart and do not agree that it should be bartered or chopped to pieces, there are times when you can’t just say what you want to say. There used to be a time when you couldn’t just “ruin” someone’s career and their livelihood by saying anything you want about them regardless if it is true or not.

People could and would sue on the basis of defamation of character. Since the days of Twitter and all social media outlets, there have been no real boundaries set and the sites are governing their own set of rules, which are biased against conservatives. This will not stand. It will affect elections and it will and does affect people’s personal and professional lives.

President Trump, I appeal to you to make this an important goal. Stop the liberal biased media in their tracks. Make them have consequences.

I am so sick of these anti-American communists operating right out in the open with impunity. They don't seem to be concerned at all about reprisals, at all!!

I would like to go on recorded as saying, neither one of these cases was an error. I believe they were deliberately done by Google employees. The Republican Party of CA and this NC State Senator should sue Google. Yes, I agree we have freedom of speech. However, that should not be extended in cases where Google outright posts false information in an attempt to sway elections. Google used to be a trusted site. That is until Obama passed his law allowing Propaganda to be dispersed. I believe he did this knowingly so he could once again weaponize against Conservatives. While the Left is pushing Communism- we need to step up our game and fight against their smear tactics.
