What Does Google Think of the Jews?

Google is scrambling to fix its search engine Friday, after users noticed a bug that reinforces anti-Semitic stereotypes. 

Until recently, typing in the question 'Who runs Hollywood?' brought up the answer 'the Jews' – reinforcing the false claim that Jews run the media. 

Google's text prediction would also predict the answer to that question, completing the keywords 'hollywood [sic] is run by' with 'the Jewish' [sic]. 

Arutz Sheva entered other possibilities, and the results are equally anti-Semitic.

"This has been flagged to us, we are working to get it removed as quickly as possible," a Google spokesman told the Daily Mail

Meanwhile, the screenshots have gone viral on social media. While some of the errors have so far been removed, others – such as the above – have not.
