As we approach the 2020 U.S. presidential election, more and more Americans are turning to Google with important questions about politicians and policies. And, as of the time of this writing, if one of those questions involves looking up the term “Democratic Party” on the popular search engine, then those Americans would be led to believe that the party’s symbol is that of a rat. Like, literally a rat. The Democratic Party’s symbol is, of course, a donkey. You would be forgiven for thinking otherwise, however, if you came across Google’s so-called Knowledge Panel which, on Monday afternoon, displayed a multicolored rodent in all its red-white-and-blue glory. For the unfamiliar, the Knowledge Panel is an information box sitting on the right side of search results and, according to Google, is “meant to help you get a quick snapshot of information on a topic based on Google’s understanding of available content on the web.”In this case, it’s clear that Google’s understanding is perhaps a bit lacking.
