They'll do it.  Just not for Americans, and we'll revel in our ignorance.

These days it seems like a great idea.

But just to play the foil, there was a time when Galileo, John Locke, and "the founding fathers" had manifestly inaccurate data to back up their wild presumptions.... At least from the view of some interests. "New" ideas will be increasingly dangerous to the status quo, and the more dangerous ones might be the ones we need most.

Humankind is struggling with this, and judges are not a lot better equipped than a bunch of monks or royal attendants. We think we are modern, but I present Herschel Walker and DeSantis, a Harvard grad. Donald Trump, from Wharton. They are, on paper, the best our society can produce. Noam Chomsky. Dr. Oz. We can't trust the people, their educators, their banks, their religious beliefs, their politics, or even their prior works.

This whole timeline is manifestly inaccurate.

For most things Google is great, but sometimes I want to search a website for a particular word or phrase and then Google kind of sucks.

For instance, all the meeting minutes for our makerspace are online. If I want to search for all occurrences of the word "toolbox" Google gives me one or two hits and then gives up.

Is there a better search engine to use in these cases?

"Right to be forgotten" should be a bit more than search results. Is that really the limit of their demand or is the journalist ignorant? It should also mean being erased from their data, tracking processes producing such data, etc.

No idea if it will help in your case, but Bing usually succeeds when Google fails... When I'm looking for porn. So, good luck and don't forget the Kleenex.

The second they start filtering out manifestly inaccurate data, they will be on the receiving end of a n ever-ending deluge of trumper lawsuits from conservatives crying about getting "canceled"

/It's real to them

The court has no power over a website not under it's jurisdiction.  The only way to get rid of the information is require it to be deindexed.

Exactly.  I don't support deindexing for this reason.  Rather, what I would like to see is something akin to: "Some of the information at this site is disputed.  Rebuttal link here."  (And I would consider requiring this of websites in general assuming there's a practical way to prevent abuse.  You say something about somebody, they get to put a rebuttal link on your page.)
