Default Google autocomplete game... see what you get

Google’s “autocomplete” can’t help you search for “Hillary Clinton email…”, try it

Someone checked to see what they'd get if they started typing

"Hillary Clinton email" with google auto complete.

1st he tried to type "Bill Clinton E..m... " and got "Bill Clinton Email address" and the like.
then he tried to type "Obama e... m... " and got "Obama Email address" and the like.
But when he typed "Hillary Clinton e ... m... a... i... l..." he got NOTHING
even when he continued with the word "Investigation" nothing auto-completed.



But hey, i'm curious to see if others get the same results.
I did.

but googles not trying to INFLUENCE anyone... it's all just random and somewhat based on your habits... right?

(BTW u know I'm sorta constitutionalist/libertarian and the guy that told me about this is a committed progressive. who voted Jill Stein.)

I typed in "what is Hillary Clinton's email address?"
First result was this one:

Contact Hillary
You can follow Hillary on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or, send her a note at the address below.

Hillary Rodham Clinton
Post Office Box 5256
New York, NY 10185


Down the page a few spots was this:

Write Public Email to Hillary Clinton (w/o address, contact info) - Fastnote

So I gave it a go . . .

So first "Hillary Clinton" . . .




Then "Hillary Clinton e". . .





Then "Hillary Clinton em"





Then I went to Duck Duck Go and got as far as "Hillary C" . . .





I went right to "Hillary Clinton e" . . .





And then "Hillary Clinton email" . . .






I don't see any other conclusion but that Google is spiking the suggestions.

wow thanks for this.
i don't see any honest way around it either.
At the very least we know that google has an political agenda and the when you use them your getting a politically biased service.
In various ways that you probably don't even know.
who knows whats being suppressed or promoted.
"buyer beware"

And cough..seem to me this means that Google is "influencing" the political discourse. Therefore is an enemy of the state ... right? an act of war maybe? ...cough

Hah, interesting stuff.

Reminds me of a game my coworkers and I used to play. It went like this, type 2 or more words into google search, hit enter. The goal was to get exactly one result. It was hard as heck.
