Gossip and Scandal Lead Google’s Top Searches in 2015
Google released the top search terms of the year Wednesday morning.
the NY Times article stated "Americans who went online were less interested in being uplifted than being distracted, preferably by something scandalous."
NY Times is correct in the way we think. What is clear is that headline grabbers like: "scandal" "fraud" "conman" are all great hyperbole but often writers just want attention rather than have substance behind those claims.
Lists were separated into categories, some of them more crowded than others. The list of most-searched candidates was the sole one in a section labeled for business and politics. The entertainment category, on the other hand, had 16 separate lists.
