(FOX NEWS) - Google came under fire this week after an error in its Knowledge Panel listed "Nazism" as the ideology of the California Republican Party.
The error, which was first spotted by political strategist Eric Wilson, showed "Nazism" alongside other ideologies such as “Conservatism,” "Market liberalism,” “Fiscal conservatism,” and “Green conservatism.”

The error showed up in Google's Knowledge Panel, which pulls information from various sources from across the web, including Wikipedia.
"Google should apologize for labeling Republicans nazis," Wilson tweeted. Wilson is the founder of LearnTestOptimize, which describes itself as "a community platform for professionals working at the intersection of marketing, technology, and politics."
The error has since been fixed, but not before House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., slammed the company over the error.
