If you Googled 'presidential candidates' early Wednesday, Trump didn't show up

0

If you Googled "presidential candidates" early Wednesday morning, that Google search pulled up a box listing three candidates: Hillary Clinton (of course), Jill Stein (makes sense) and... Bernie Sanders.

There's no sign of Donald Trump (or libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, for that matter).

Of course, actual linked search results list all the candidates.

By 10 a.m. EST, Google had removed the info box entirely.

But people noticed what seemed like a snub, especially the Reddit community of r/The_Donald. Users on that site are accusing Google of a media blackout.

Other search engines, like Microsoft's Bing, show Trump, Clinton and Stein prominently, as well as smaller images of former candidates like Marco Rubio and Chris Christie.

A Yahoo search lists Clinton, Trump and Sanders, but none of the third-party candidates.

Google has yet to respond to Circa's requests for comment.

In the meantime, maybe Trump should relax with one of the beers these craft brewers recommend.
