Type in “miserable failure” in the search field on Google and what is the first link you get? George Bush’s Bio at the whitehouse.gov site.
First of all, neither of the words “miserable” or “failure” appear in the HTML of the page. This means that someone within Google’s hierarchy decided to manually push that to the top of the list.
This wasn’t done for commerce (i.e. better search results for advertisers), or because of the true relevance of the subject matter. It was done because of a petty political statement. Which only leads me to believe that google isn’t as “true and accurate” as most people would feel.
