US President Donald Trump has widened his criticism of social media platforms to now also include Google, whom he says favors left-wing news.
Mr. Trump stated that “Google search results for “Trump News” show only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media. In other words, they have it rigged, for me & others, so that almost all stories and news is bad. Fake CNN is prominent.”
“Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal? 96% of results on “Trump News” are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous. 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!”
The US President believes that the Silicon Valley company prioritizes negative news stories about him from what he described as the "national left-wing media" whilst conservative reporting was being "suppressed".
Regulating Jewgle would be the best thing for the internet since the fucking internet.
Hitler was good. I love holocaust. I hate jews
How is it possible the jewgle is not yet regulated? are our politicians corrupt?
I don't think 'Left-Wing' has to be put in quotes. Google is pretty obviously and self identified as left wing.
try yahoo, fucktards. google /= the internet
There is no irony. If it was ancaps yeah. Only because you are a Marxist commie would you think there's any irony. Just because we accept private property and markets doesn't mean we don't value other things and set limits.
Because Google has gotten a free pass since its a privatized service/business, but lately politicians have been arguing that Google/Twitter/Facebook/youtube are so ubiquitous in their function that they effectively are public spaces, and should therefore be held to first amendment standards. Usually legislation aimed at social media is to make them compliant into attempts to investigate what users post for thoughtcrime as in Europe, so its not entirely unprecedented for a government to use law to arbitrate on behalf of social media. They've worked hard to push out competitors and establish monopoly, now its coming back to bite them in the ass.
left wingers acting as if they have a single working brain cell, and then trying to act like some sort of respected intellectuals is the true irony here
Why are they using scare quotes?
google is not infringing on free speech. how? they're giving voice to anyone on the internet. trump is the one who is complaining about the content of the speech and wants to silence it which IS a violation of the constitution. That's just one example, but he's consistently made and said things that run counter to his oath to protect the constitution, which is the definition of america. He's the most unamerican president since Bush Jr. and his patriot act.
Right now criticism of left wing people is heavily censored on Google. I think Trump is pushing for less censorship of criticism of left wing people but if thats not possible then I guess lowering criticism of right wing politicians to match would be fair.
Tech businesses have a left wing bias because they tend to be in super ultra mega left wing areas like California. Also, large businesses put systems in place to influence government. So they want a large powerful active government that puts out a lot of regulations which they can influence to block out their compettitors who dont have the same government connections.
t. libshit commie
Google controls the flow of information. The big internet corporations have the power to redefine words and rewrite history. This is what Metal Gear Solid 2 warned us about.
