We all use the Google search engine several times a day. It is so common that it is easy for you, when someone asks you three things in a row, you answer: do you think I am Google?
The same happens with the most famous virtual encyclopedia in the world, the well-known Wikipedia … We all go to see it often, although practically anyone can change the content at will and that creates more of a problem.
One of the funniest goons we saw on Wikipedia in the past was in Gary Oldman's very biography: "The doctor claimed at first that Gary was a girl, then looked at him more closely and said he was a giraffe."
Without going any further, the actress Sandra Echeverria was upset on twitter about her frustration with her own biography on the well-known portal:
As the Spanish newspaper ABC pointed out today, if you enter the famous Google search engine and ask exactly in the search: What countries are communists? The result to your question yields six countries: North Korea, Cuba, Laos, Vietnam, the People's Republic of China … And Spain!
And all this without entering any link, appearing at the beginning of all responses. Noting, yes, that the classification comes from Wikipedia, content that obviously some user modified to make Spain appear as a communist state.
In a study from last November that evaluated the state of democracies in the world, published by the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA), Spanish democracy ranked thirteen in the world ranking.
In another study published in The Economist, Spain ranked as one of the only 20 full democracies in the world, and scored 8.08 out of ten.
The infallible Google is also wrong! Without going any further, a few days ago he also made a mistake in his doodle for the first time in history. The image that was displayed as a tribute to those workers who are fighting against the coronavirus, redirected to the search for "cordonavirus", something that the search engine soon took care of correcting as soon as someone asked: "What is cordonavirus?"
If we can no longer believe in Google, who are we going to believe in?
