Bing Search for Md. School Leads to Porn

Some people who searched for one Prince George's County high school online got quite a surprise when the website popped up.

The popular search engine Bing mistakenly mixed up the letters of the link to Friendly High School.  As WTOP first reported, users were sent to an "alternate" spelling of pgcps.org -- one that we won't link to here.

Instead of sending users to the school's actual website, anyone who clicked on the link was directed to a pornographic website -- giving Bing users quite a lesson on sex education.

WTOP alerted Bing to the problem, and the mistake was quickly corrected.
