SJR oddity

This is a screen capture from a search on Google News today:


They're calling our local paper, "Springfield State Journal Register." I never noticed the "Springfield" part before. And, they dropped the hyphen. Is this something Google is doing on its own? If so, why would they take it upon themselves to change the name of our newspaper. Very strange.

If anything it should read, "State Journal-Register, Springfield, IL."

I remember when it was called the Illinois State Journal-Register. But, never Springfield. Strange.
