Who runs Hollywood? Google to fix search result that claims 'Jews' do BY Meg Wagner NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Friday, September 4, 2015, 9:31 AM A A A Share this URL Google Google answers 'Jew' when a user asks, 'Who runs Hollywood?' Google has promised to fix an anti-Semitic algorithm that claims “Jews” run Hollywood. The search engine giant removed the direct answer after outrage over the derogatory answer mounted on social media. When a user Googled the phrase “Who runs Hollywood?” the search engine automatically answered “Jews,” linking to a 2014 article headlined “Jews Boast of Owning Hollywood—But Slam Gentiles Who Say the Same.” Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images The answer links to an article titled 'Jews Boast of Owning Hollywood—But Slam Gentiles Who Say the Same.' The story is from a website called the New Observer, which is filled with “news stories” boasting offensive conspiracy theories. A recent article about the Syrian refugee boy who drowned while fleeing his war-ravaged home claimed the media’s coverage of his death is “a blatant attempt to morally blackmail Europeans into accepting the nonwhite invasion of their continent.” The anti-Semitic answer appeared at the very top of the Google search as part of the company’s direct answers service. The search engine scours articles for commonly asked questions and presents the quick answer in a highlighted box on the search results’ page. Mark Lennihan/AP Google said it is working to fix the algorithm bug. Google told the Guardian it is aware of the unfortunate search result and is working to remove it. A spokesperson said the article appears so highly in the search results because other websites have linked to it, giving it perceived “authority” in the algorithm. “We assure you that the views expressed by such sites are not in any way endorsed by Google,” the spokesperson said.
