Photos Of Mitt Romney Dominate Google Image Search For 'Completely Wrong'
For what will presumably be at least a short time, Google Images are turning up a full page full of Mitt Romney images when someone searches for the phrase, "completely wrong."
While conservative media outlets are criticizing the results, and Romney critics and comedians are having a field day with them, they seem to be legitimately linked to words that came out of Romney's own mouth when he tried to backpedal from his "47 percent" comment that was leaked online last month and invited a harsh onslaught of criticism.
"Well, clearly in a campaign, with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right," Romney said in a statement last week. "In this case, I said something that's just completely wrong."
Hence, Google's algorithms associating the phrase with Romney. A Google spokesperson told Slate that the search results are not intentional on Google's part, but "the natural result of a flurry of recent news articles associating Romney with the phrase."
