  • Hoffman: Bing results are racist, antisemitic, pedophiliaic, conspiratorial

    I didn’t believe it until I tried some of the searches myself. Google comes up clean, but Bing barfs big-time.

    Chris Hoffman at How-To Geek: Bing Is Suggesting the Worst Things You Can Imagine

    Microsoft has a responsibility to clean up Bing. A major search engine (and especially one that is increasingly becoming a harder-to-turn-off default built into Windows 10) shouldn’t be suggesting its users search for racist garbage and images of underage children.

    Wonder if Satya has seen this? Bing’s come a long way since he was in charge.
