Popular “alternative” search engine DuckDuckGo has run into something of a PR problem after CEO and founder Gabriel Weinberg announced that, in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, DuckDuckGo would alter search results to limit users’ access to disinformation and propaganda disseminated by the Russian government. Users have balked at this perceived censorship, pointing out that the search engine is popular because it serves as an alternative to sites like Google and Bing that operate as virtual extensions of the US government’s security state. Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger trade puns on the DuckDuckGo name while mocking Weinberg’s potentially brand-destroying PR screwup.
