The two largest search engines, Bing and Google, use their home pages to commemorate all sorts of holidays, birthdays, and so on. Google is notorious in how it remembers certain events though, and how it ignores others.
Bing, on the other hand, never fails to show respect.
On Memorial Day, the two internet giants’ home pages looked like this:
At least Google, which goes all out for holidays like Cinco de Mayo, and May Day [the anniversary of the Communist revolution] had something, but not much, and certainly not enough, considering what it does for other holidays.
I would think honoring those who gave their lives for Liberty and Freedom would be a top priority for those who count on free speech to make a living. Without the sacrifices our veterans have made since our nation’s founding, our free speech rights might not exist as they do today.
This isn’t the first time Google has done this, nor will be it the last.
In June of 2010, we covered how both Bing and Google handled the anniversary of the D-Day invasion.
I’m OK with both Bing and Google doing their own thing, but is it too much to ask for Google to show a little more respect for our troops?
