Google Denies Fox News
Google has officially denied accuracy of the search results on which Fox News based its report to call Pakistan – ‘Pornsistan’. The denial from Google official Therese Lim who works for communications and Public Affairs Southeast Asia team has once again proven Fox News as a biased media outlet reporting on basis of inaccurate and incomplete facts. After being exposed, Fox News should put down the pubslished news report from its website.
Google officially denied the accuracy of its search trends that declared Pakistan as the top nation searching for illicit material on the internet, according to Dawn sources.
In an email sent to dawn.com on Saturday, Therese Lim who works for Google’ communications and Public Affairs Southeast Asia team said, “We do our best to provide accurate data and to provide insights into broad search patterns, but the results for a given query, such as those reported in this story from Pakistan, may contain inaccuracies because the sample size is too small for the results to be statistically sound.”
Internet Service Provider Association of Pakistan has also declared statistics regarding pornography in Pakistan as flawed.
There are eight million users of internet in Pakistan which makes only five per cent of the country’s total population.
