Have You Realized How Dishonesty Has Effectively Lowered Your IQ?

        One of the problems of dishonesty is that it numbs your brain. Stuff you wouldn't fall for if you were thinking gets accepted without question.

        Here's a simple one from today. People noticed that Donald Trump and Gary Johnson weren't listed in a Google search box supposedly showing Presidential candidates with active campaigns. Hillary Clinton and Jill Stein were, and so was Bernie, but no Republican, and no Libertarian.

        After this was called to Google's attention, they changed that, and "explained":

"We found a technical bug in Search where only the presidential candidates participating in an active primary election were appearing in a Knowledge Graph result. Because the Republican and Libertarian primaries have ended, those candidates did not appear. This bug was resolved early this morning."

        A lot of people doubt that Google's telling the truth, but I've been to over a dozen different sites so far that were 'reporting' on this, and not one asked about the obvious. Just where are these primaries being held that Hillary and Bernie and Jill will participate in?

       Main stream media hasn't even reported the story, far as I can tell:

        A few local stations got on it, but didn't ask about the 'primaries':

       Neither did alternative media and tech web sites:

        So far, this is the only site that even tried to inquire into this that I can find: They also missed the obvious question about primaries, but they mention a story about this, and snopes in turn mentioned and linked to Jill Stein's site, showing this screen shot from a few days back:


        That one did have Bernie as an active candidate, still, but it omitted Stein.

        Oh, and I haven't even begun to mention the other minor parties that have candidates, or the independent "candidates" that aren't on the ballot anywhere. Google doesn't bring them up either.

        Aside from me, one guy on a bulletin board brought it up:

        This is important. People should be jumping all over Google, asking what's really going on, where these alleged primaries are, why Bernie Sanders is listed as an active candidate, and why other candidates don't show up. But they don't, because they don't even see what the problem is. And that ought to really scare you.
