This "misplacement" has been happening for about two days now

 It's that-o-way!
A curious thing has been happening on Google Maps -- the Lincoln Memorial is being misplaced in favor of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial, which is a good half a mile south of the more famous memorial.
According to the Geographic Travels blog, this "misplacement" has been happening for about two days now. 
Typing "Lincoln Memorial" into the regular Google search bar brings up a number of listings related to the Lincoln Memorial, yet shows a map of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial.
Is this a Google Maps glitch, or could this have anything to do with the fact that conservative radio and TV host Glenn Beck is holding a controversial "non-political" rally at the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday?"

Hi guys.
It looks like "Google and the CIA invest in analytics firm" is paying off?

I see they've rediscovered where the Lincoln Memorial is. It's a wonder they didn't re-direct everybody to Sharpton's rally.
