Oops?! Google Covers its Search Results with an Apology

Well, sometimes SEO goes awry.  Google has already issued a public statement of apology for the top result image for a search on “Michelle Obama” being the one you see below.  I captured it before they took it down.  However, what this fails to make painfully obvious is that their search system is not really organic by any stretch of the imagination.  The fact that Google (or MSN, or Yahoo! or anyone else) can manipulate the results to remove something deemed offensive is clear proof that the results are already manipulated.
