Sandcrawler PSA: Memory Hole Really Just a Giant Pile of Spam
We've been discussing how useless Google's search has become when big news events break.Websites everywhere republishing old stories under hot tags and also defeating the date search feature by posting new stories of whatever event to dates prior to the actual event.

The actor in the picture abovewas known as Iron Eyes Cody. It was not commonly known, until after his death in 1999, that he was NOT a Native American, but rather an Italian-American.
Cut and paste from the Wikipedia article on Iron Eyes Cody:
Iron Eyes Cody (born Espera Oscar de Corti April 3, 1904 – January 4, 1999) was an American actor. He frequently portrayed American Indians in Hollywood films. In 1995, Cody was honored by the American Indian community for his work publicizing the plight of Native Americans, including his acting in films. In 1996, his Italian ancestry was made public.[
Cody was born as Espera Oscar de Corti on April 3, 1904, in Kaplan in Vermilion Parish, in southwestern Louisiana, a second son of Antonio de Corti and his wife, Francesca Salpietra, immigrants from Sicily.
Cody became widely seen in his "crying Indian" role in the "Keep America Beautiful" Public Service Announcement (PSA) in the early 1970s.
