Because a person(s) wrote the script/software...
The message to take home is 'fix your script/software".
So you think Google should be required to fact check anything that gets created as a suggestion based on words written by others in order to avoid defamation?
That is ridiculous. The script isn't broken, there are stories about the guy and those words.
If you start typing "Obama News" after typing the 'N' I see "Obama Not An American"
I am not stupid enough to think that Google is actually suggesting that Obama is not a natural born citizen of the USA.
To look a search suggestion and take it to be an assertion made by Google is among the dumbest things I have heard, and to have a court make a ruling that says that a search suggestion is an assertion is sad and to me says that the judge in this case uses the Internet about as much as my turtle.
