Down the Memory Hole

I know when it comes to Ye Olde Bush Administration, lots of people would like to pretend it never happened. Including, apparently,‘s new webmasters. Slate’s Farhad Manjoo explains:


To test out the new site’s search engine, I typed in “Bush.” I got back just four pages dedicated to the clan—one bio each for Barbara Bush, George H.W. Bush, Laura Bush, and George W. Bush. That last page recounts the 43rd president’s achievements in just a few short paragraphs—it says nothing about Iraq, Katrina, Gitmo, Scooter Libby, Alberto Gonzales, or anything else you might’ve lost sleep over these past eight years.

Let’s assume for now that the oversight is just due to transition difficulties. Or maybe Tim Geithner’s involved and a few “common mistakes” were made.
