Report: Google ‘Bug’ Allows Anyone to Create Misinformation

A Google Search bug reportedly allows any user to add misinformation to search results. In one case, tech site TechCrunch managed to create a Google search result showing rapper Snoop Dogg as President of the United States.
According to TechCrunch, by changing the URLs of search results, you can manipulate the results to include information cards which are inaccurate.

In one example, TechCrunch made rapper Snoop Dogg appear at the top of results for, “who is the US president.”

In another, TechCrunch made the planet Mars the first result in searches for, “what is the capital of Britain.”

The changes are made only in the altered URL, which can then be shared with others who will then also see the same results.
