A few weeks ago
, we noticed that Google had rigged their little "prompting"
system on the Google home page
, where, as you type your search term, it offers up the most popular searches beginning with those letters. Oddly, Pat Buchanan had been relegated to Unperson status by Google, unlike Yahoo`s and Bing`s search engines where Buchanan was the second prompt for "Pat B"
after only Pat Benatar.
Obviously, that wasn`t the most crucial issue of our times, but it does say something when a super-rich and powerful near monopolist surreptitiously engages in petty political vendettas.
I concluded, "Ridicule is the best medicine."
And ridicule seems to have worked. Buchanan is now second on Google among the "Pat B" prompts, well ahead of the immortal Pat Buttram.
