MSNBC’s Chuck Todd talked to Santorum about his “Google issue” Thursday. [...]
“Do you think google has any responsibility in how its search engine works,” Todd asked.
“It comes with the territory,” Santorum explained. “There are foul people out there who do horrible things. It’s unfortunate some people thought it would be a big joke to make fun of my name. That comes with the territory.”
“You don’t think google should step in themselves?” Todd prodded.
“I don’t know how they’ve treated other circumstances and other situations, whether they treated it differently than mine. I would suggest that if they have treated it differently and have done things stop this kind of this vile activity and filth on the Internet, they should apply it equally to me and everybody else,” Santorum said.
A question for Chuck Todd — Do you think Google should step in themselves? Do you believe a search engine should filter their results to protect a politician?
I would hope not.
