Has Bing come down with the same “bug” that infected Google for so long — the one that censored negative searches about Islam?

Try it yourself: go to Bing and type in “Jews are.” One suggested completion of the phrase will show up:

Now type in “Christians are,” and you’ll get two suggestions:

But if you type in “Muslims are,” you get no hint that they are evil, pumpkin-like, or stupid. You get nothing at all:

So once again possible negative suggestions are filtered out for the world’s most thin-skinned and lethal religious believers — the ones waging a global campaign against free speech about the aspects of their religion that incite and justify violence and supremacism. What a coincidence!

(Thanks to Richard for the heads-up.)
