“Very Serious Situation”: Trump Accuses Google Of Rigging Search Results Against Him

Via Zerohedge


In an especially early tweet storm (starting before 6am), Donald Trump accused Google of rigging its search results to display only left-wing and negative stories about him, calling it “a very serious situation” that “will be addressed.”

“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD, Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal,” Trump said in his latest claim of bias by the media. 96% of results on “Trump News” are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous.”

Trump may have a point: a generic search for “Trump” in Google’s news shows links to CNN, NYT, NPR, VOX, the New Yorker and Washington Post – all what are considered  in that order

Then, repeating an accusation he has made previously, Trump tweeted that “Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!” It wasn’t clear just what this “addressing” would entail.

Trump’s assault on Google follows Trump’s Aug. 24 claim that social media “giants” are “silencing millions of people.” As Twitter has recently admitted, it has indeed been shadowbanning and otherwise ghosting various conservative accounts, which has resulted in CEO Jack Dorsey being invited to testify before Congress on the company’s policies.

Ironically, as Bloomberg reminds us, in July Trump lashed out at the European Union in response to a record $5 billion fine against Google over its mobile phone operating system, calling Google one of America’s “great companies.”

He may have a point and that is an understatement ,but what can he do about it ?
It is legal in the US to spread mis/disinformation in the media .i believe that this law was passed not that many years ago.

Don’t use Google, Mr. President. Use the DuckDuckGo.com search engine.

Google search anything on him and ONLY MSM negativity comes up.
Until a year ago it was balanced and actually showed the sites that had the most hits which is exactly how its supposed to be.

THIS IS ELECTION AND FREE SPEECH INTERFERENCE

and BTW
I def remember seeing the Duran come up on those searches. Not now though..

We have to stope these Batrds one way or another from denying us Free Speech!

Trump can make all the accusations he wants, unless he hits google ( et al ) with massive financial penalties, nothing will change.

I’d rather fill my mouth with dog feces and swim naked in a septic tank, than use ‘google’ for a search engine.

Donnie, how old are you? Of course Google rigs the game; it’s their business model. Try Startpage, a Dutch search engine with no tracking. The Duck is nice but useless.
