Google Misdirects Readers Searching for D’Souza’s “America” – Says It “Needs Time” to Fix Glitch
America, Imagine the World Without Her
Dinesh D’Souza scores another home run in his latest critique of the far left in America.
But for some reason Google can’t seem to find the movie times on its search engine.
America filmmakers shot off a letter to Google demanding the search engine correct problems that are hampering the ability for consumers to find out movie times to D’Souza’s latest documentary.
Via The Hollywood Reporter:
The move comes on the heels of Costco allegedly removing the movie’s source material, Dinesh D’Souza’s book “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” from its store shelves.
Lawyers representing Dinesh D’Souza’s newest film, America, have fired off a letter to Google demanding that the search engine correct problems that they say are hampering the ability of consumers to figure out where the movie is playing.
The letter claims that Google has been confusing America with 2016: Obama’s America, which was D’Souza’s first movie and has been out of theaters for two years, while Lionsgate released America on July 2 and it is currently playing in about 1,100 theaters nationwide.
Google, according to the letter, has been “misdirecting many users who mistakenly believed the film was not playing in theaters. We understand this was brought to your attention for correction five days ago, yet the problem persists.”
The letter, obtained exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter, was sent Monday to Google chief legal officer David Drummond and comes from AmericaFilm LLC.
In response to the letter, Google said it will “need time” to fix the glitch that caused the search engine error.
The Times of India reported:
Google has said that they it would take some time to fix the confusion regarding the title of the movie ‘America’ in their Google search results.
Google recently responded to accusations that it has been dragging its heels for a week while failing to fix a search problem that has made it difficult for users to locate theaters playing America, the new movie from conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, the Hollywood Reporter reported.
The giant Internet firm’s spokesperson said that their systems have unfortunately confused the title of the movie America because it’s a common term but they have updated the Knowledge Graph, their database that stores this type of information, however, it will still take some time to display showtimes and other details for the movie.
