Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza wants to know why his latest docudrama "America: Imagine the World Without Her" was buried by mega search engine Google.
Here's the technical problem: When one normally searches the name of a current movie plus the word “movie” in Google, showtimes and more information for the film typically show up. “America” opened on July 1 in 700 theaters nationwide, but typing in “America movie” has not provided show time information in a Google search.
Lawyers for the film sent a letter to Google chief legal officer David Drummond insisting the situation be fixed, claiming that it is hindering the ability for moviegoers to find out where its being played.
"Google's search algorithm is not an absolute exact science, however, its core mission is to serve up reliable and accurate information to the end user," Ari Zoldan, CEO of Quantum Networks said. "The company does not engage in unethical or biased mis-search results. They are not in the business of taking sides."
