Report: Google Wanted to Bury Conservative News Sites in Search Results

Published

on

According to a Daily Caller report, Google engineers conspired about whether the company should bury search results of prominent conservative news websites.

“Communications obtained by TheDCNF show that internal Google discussions went beyond expressing remorse over Clinton’s loss to actually discussing ways Google could prevent Trump from winning again,” the report said.

Daily Caller obtained posts from Google engineer Scott Byer in which he wanted to make Google the arbiter of truth in media, and disparaged conservative media outlets as “opinion blogs.”

“This was an election of false equivalencies, and Google, sadly, had a hand in it,” Byer said on Nov. 9. 2016, the day after President Donald J. Trump’s historic triumph over Hillary R. Clinton.

“I think we have a responsibility to expose the quality and truthfulness of sources – because not doing so hides real information under loud noises,” he reportedly said. “Beyond that, let’s concentrate on teaching critical thinking. A little bit of that would go a long way. Let’s make sure that we reverse things in four years – demographics will be on our side.”

Engineer Uri Dekel’s response was a bit more tempered, though he still referred to conservatives as “deplorable,” a word added the lexicon of every leftist in 2016 thanks to remarks made by Clinton.

“Thinking that Breitbart, Drudge, etc. are not ‘legitimate news sources’ is contrary to the beliefs of a major portion of our user base is partially what got us to this mess. MSNBC is not more legit than Drudge just because Rachel Maddow may be more educated / less deplorable / closer to our views, than, say Sean Hannity,” Dekel said, replying to Byer.

“I follow a lot of right wing folks on social networks you could tell something was brewing. We laughed off Drudge’s Instant Polls and all that stuff, but in the end, people go to those sources because they believe that the media doesn’t do it’s job. I’m a Hillary supporter and let’s admit it, the media avoided dealing with the hard questions and issues, which didn’t pay off. By ranking ‘legitimacy’ you’ll just introduce more conspiracy theories,” he said.

Byer, who really hates Breitbart, disagreed.

“Too many times, Breitbart is just echoing a demonstrably made up story,” he said without providing examples.

Google engineer Mike Brauwerman had another suggestion.

“What I believe we can do, technically, that avoids the accusations of conspiracy or bias from people who ultimately have a right and obligation to decide what they want to believe, is to get better at displaying the ‘ripples’ and copy-pasta, to trace information to its source, to link to critiques of those sources, and let people decide what sources they believe,” he said. “Give people a comprehensive but effectively summarized view of the information, not context-free rage-inducing sound-bytes.

David Besbris, Google’s vice president of engineering also added to the conversation.

“We’re working on providing users with context around stories so that they can know the bigger picture,” he said. “We can play a role in providing the full story and educate them about all sides. This doesn’t have to be filtering and can be useful to everyone.”

How comforting to know that the platform by which nearly the entire world receives information has a far-left bias.

According to the report, Google denied ever manipulating any search results.

YouTube Censors Videos Posted by Independent Journalist Ford Fischer of Protests Near Biden’s Inauguration

Raw journalism hurts the globalist elite.

Independent journalist Ford Fischer of News2Share is reporting that three of his YouTube videos are being censored.

Fischer announced in a Twitter post that the Google-owned video streaming service has targeted three of his videos that showed interactions between various protesters of different political stripes on Biden’s inauguration day.

Big League Politics has reported on YouTube’s hostility toward any messages that may cause the masses to doubt the official globalist corporate narrative:

Dr. Scott Atlas, who has emerged as President Donald Trump’s most credible advisor on COVID-19 policy, is being censored by YouTube.

Atlas, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute, has spoken out consistently against the mass hysteria surrounding COVID-19. YouTube recently censored a Hoover video in which he was speaking about the lies peddled by the medical establishment during the pandemic.

“They put in a lockdown… They did not calculate at all the harms of the lockdown, the consequences of the lockdown. They did a stop COVID 19 at all costs. They used hypothetical projection models that were so egregiously wrong, far, far off. Yet they keep citing those models,” Atlas said while appearing on Uncommon Knowledge with Peter Robinson. The video is still available on the Hoover Institute website.

“All over the world, Switzerland, Iceland, Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Asian countries, there is a minimal, if any, risk of children transmitting the disease, even to their parents. It’s not just that children are not at risk at all from this disease. They also do not even transmit the disease,” he continued.

“The science is really not science. It’s a fear-based and cherry-picking of certain studies. It’s very poor analysis. As I say many times, a lotta smart people are doing a lotta sloppy thinking,” Atlas added.

In addition to being targeted by Youtube, Fischer has also been targeted by other tech monopolies as well. Facebook has regularly stopped him from hosting his content on their platform for various reasons.

However, Fischer has shown that the tech giants will capitulate after enough public pressure, as he has had videos reinstated on the major platforms after being initially targeted by censorship measures.

By targeting popular journalists with large followings such as Fischer, the Big Tech giants are making themselves increasingly loathed among the masses. The behavior of these tech monopolies is setting the stage for new regulations that will break up their stranglehold or market alternatives rising that will protect freedom of speech.
