Anti-vaccers stage walkout at Google University

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Mommy bloggers, anti-vaccine cult members and natural health advocates the world over are mobilizing a massive student walkout at the Google University over the proposed changes to Google’s new search algorithm. Google is contemplating instituting a new search results model which would rank results by accuracy. This is bad news for the natural health, anti-vaccine and pseudo-scientific communities.

“When I search for things like “vaccines” in Google, I want the first result to be telling me how bad vaccines are, not some link to a study or the CDC,” said Sherri Tenpenny, one of the leaders of the anti-vaccine movement. “This is a clear case of discrimination and a violation of my first amendment right to free search resulting.”

Google University is the alma mater of legendary Playboy bunny and anti-vaccine hero Jenny McCarthy, and many parents have followed in her footsteps and graduated from the non-existent university.

It is unclear what the “students” at GU hope to accomplish, but it is believed they would like the exact opposite of what Google is proposing – that is having anti-vaccine, pseudoscience and miracle cancer cures be given top placement in search results.

The Science Post reached out to Google University for comment but could not find any contact information for any professor, dean or chancellor at the school.

    Hahahaha, Sherri tenpenny, the dummy doesn’t even know there is no first amendment right to free search resulting.

    • Will kenedy

      Especially since she isn’t an American and doesn’t live there.

      • Chris

        She lives in Ohio.

    I don’t even know where to start with everything that’s wrong with that statement.

      By definition satire should say something very very wrong. From A Modest Proposal ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Modest_Proposal ) to Htrae ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bizarro_World , okay that is actually sarcasm)… and other wrongness beyond our expectations!

      The main thing “wrong” with it is that it’s from a satirical news site. It’s not a real article, it’s fake news. This one’s relatively innocuous but by and large, fake news sites are a form of pollution, designed partly to poke fun at people, but partly to confuse people who glance over the article and momentarily believe it’s real.

        Poe’s Law

      • At least I stay on topic

        It’s not fake news, it’s satire, the difference being fake news is lies, wheras satire uses exaggeration to take the mickey out of a person or group.

  • Hahahahaha 😀

    Google = private company = it can do what it f****** likes.

    • So long as Google doesn’t misrepresent anything, purposefully mislead consumers or commit fraud in the process they’re pretty much good to go in most states.

      Florida and California not withstanding.

      Google isn’t a private company, it’s openly traded but the point stands. let them leave..

    “This is a clear case of discrimination and a violation of my first amendment right to free search resulting.”

    Wait.. that’s satire, right? …right?

    What do you mean our bachelor’s degree from Google U will no longer be honored? QUICK! EVERYONE OVER TO YOUTUBE TECH!

  • Diego Morales

    Google, I don’t care if you’re an evil overlord planning to enslave us all. I like you.

  • MidWestGal

    Well heck……..There’s always ‘Trump u’ she can enroll in………… 😉

  • DFW Dann

    But I was just about to finish medical school at Google U. All I needed was two more credits in “denial of conventional science,” a seminar of “proper use of anecdotal evidence,” and a “correlation over causation” independent project.

    • Jim Summers

      I believe you can sub a couple of those classes with “Seaching on WebMD”

  • Chris Moore

    Will my PhD in Cognitive Dissonance still be valid?

    So many can’t/won’t read/comprehend what is in the item. The third word in the banner under the title gives all the information necessary.

    Make a “Google like” for anti vaxers, Google is not a mandatory product.
