President Trump Says Google Searches Rigged, DFW Expert Disagrees

Trump Google suppressing conservative voices hiding ‘good’ news and information

Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. The Trump administration's threat drew rebukes from Democrats and even a few Republicans, who said government shouldn't play a role in monitoring search results or other content online.

The US president had more than just Google in his sights.

Google says it never ranks results to skew or sway political sentiment. He later called the situation "very serious" and added that it will be "addressed", without specifying when or how will he tackle the so-called issue of Google and media outlets trying to portray him in a negative image.

It was not immediately clear what if any measures Trump envisioned, but his top economic adviser Larry Kudlow told reporters at the White House that "we're looking into it" when asked about the claims on Google.

He added, again with no evidence, that "96 percent of results on "Trump News" are from National Left-Wing Media, very unsafe".

"You can't do that to people", he said.

Google denied any political bias, saying in a statement that its search engine is "not used to set a political agenda and we don't bias our results towards any political ideology".

Trump's accusation of bias on the part of Google comes as social media companies have suspended accounts, banned certain users and removed content as they face pressure from the U.S. Congress to police foreign propaganda and fake accounts aimed at disrupting American politics, including operations tied to Iran and Russian Federation.

Cristiano Ronaldo Admits Juventus Ovation Convinced Him to Join Serie A Champions
The five-time Ballon d'Or victor said he had been impressed with his new club since joining last month in a 100-million-euro deal. Juventus paid €100 million ($114.37 million) to sign Ronaldo, who made his league debut in their 3-2 win at Chievo last Sunday.

Trump appeared to be referencing a story published in recent days by conservative outlet PJ Media, which claimed that Google was "deprioritizing" content from conservative websites.

"We're just gonna do some investigations, some analysis, that's what we do", he said.

Complaints that social-media services censor conservatives have increased as companies such as Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. try to curb the reach of conspiracy theorists, disinformation campaigns, foreign political meddling and abusive posters.

"Accusations of search engine "bias" have existed as long as there have been search engines". His non-partisan policy group is affiliated with the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, which in turn has executives from Silicon Valley companies, including Google, on its board of directors. "Because that lowers the value as a news platform", New said.

The search results do take into account other signals such as the user's geographic location and browsing history.

The president's tweets on Tuesday echoed his familiar attacks on the news media - and a conservative talking point that California-based tech companies run by CEOs with liberal leanings don't give equal weight to opposing political viewpoints.

We started with the phrase "Trump news", since this is the one Trump cited in his Tweet. The company meant to send Senior Vice-President for Global Affairs Kent Walker to testify, but the panel's chairman, Senator Richard Burr, who wanted Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai, has rejected Walker.

Trump has not always been hostile to Google. The company has since greatly evolved its ranking system, as the web has grown and Google has evolved.
