Trump Says Google Search Results Are 'Rigged' and Suppress Conservative Voices

                    Donald Trump has accused Google of rigging search engine to show'bad news about him

As usual, Trump took to Twitter to make his argument. "And they have to be careful", the president said later Tuesday. We have tremendous - We have literally thousands and thousands of complaints coming in, and you just can't do that.

Google denied using political viewpoints to shape its search results. He has made social media, particularly Twitter, an integral part of his presidency.

In response, Google said its goal is to make sure users of its search engine get the most relevant answers quickly.

Rep Lamar Smith, a Republican from Texas, said Google was censoring the word "Jesus" in some search results, a claim he did not give Google time to address. Finally, we used CanIRank's SEO software to analyze how each URL compared in dozens of different ranking factors to determine whether Google's algorithm treated websites similarly regardless of their political slant. Well.not so fast. Rather than uncovering compelling evidence of bias, this article's author and its promoters merely reveal their ignorance of how search engines work.

The controversy Tuesday also illustrates the tricky political terrain that Google and its tech peers now navigate.

- A Google Images search of "president Russian hookers" brings up - you guessed it - a bunch of pictures of President Trump but NONE of any of the other American presidents.

Facebook declined to comment.

And Facebook's "Trending Feed" was found by Gizmodo to be exhibiting bias. Trump wrote in his tweets. The duo has long said that their online videos are being suppressed by tech companies, though some of their claims have been debunked. And you won't believe what I uncovered.

"There's no question about this".

The pair of morning tweets appeared to be a reprise of a post from over the weekend on conservative blog PJ Media. Late last month he weighed into the "shadow banning" debate, where right-wing personalities felt Twitter was blocking them from reaching a wider audience.

Soon, it will be Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey's turn. "I think we should understand this is a specific strategy to try to influence the way these platforms present information".

The announcement puts the search giant squarely in the White House's crosshairs amid a wider series of allegations against the tech industry that it systematically discriminates against conservatives on social media and other platforms.

"Next week, Google, Facebook and Twitter representatives will testify before Congress, discussing censorship and election meddling".

While Bolyard stressed that her own study was not scientific, she pointed to a recent study produced by search engine optimization company "Can I Rank", which found a consistent, significant left-ward bias in Google when searching for political topics.
