PostSubject: Google blames Wikipedia for "Nazism" tag on California GOP   Sat Jun 02, 2018 4:50 am

SAN FRANCISCO -- Google is blaming Wikipedia for search results that said the ideology of the California Republican Party included "Nazism." Results were seen in a Google information box screen-captured by Vice News on Thursday.
The story was quickly seized on by Republicans.
U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, whose district is in central California, tweeted that the results were a "disgrace."

Dear @Google,
This is a disgrace ⬇️ #StopTheBias

In another tweet, McCarthy said, "Sadly, this is just the latest incident in a disturbing trend to slander conservatives. These damaging actions must be held to account."
California Republican Party executive director Cynthia Bryant said in a statement that Google and Wikipedia should take more ownership of what is published on their sites.
Google quickly adjusted the information box to remove the section on ideology, calling the change "vandalism."
A search of change records shows the term "Nazism" was added to the Wikipedia entry twice in the last week before being taken down by other editors.
