Bias by Google (Don't be Evil!) probably flipped at least three Congressional seats, according to a recent study.
He also supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 (just like Google!).
Down to the findings:
Epstein and AIBRT analyzed Google searches linked to three highly competitive southern California congressional races in which Democrats won, and found that Google's "clear democrat bias" may have flipped the seats away from Republican candidates. According to the study, at least 35,455 undecided voters within the three California districts may have been persuaded to vote Democrat due to the biased Google search results.
Epstein says that in the days leading up to the 2018 midterms, he was able to preserve "more than 47,000 election-related searches on Google, Bing, and Yahoo, along with the nearly 400,000 web pages to which the search results linked.”
Analysis of this data showed a clear pro-Democrat bias in election-related Google search results as compared to competing search engines. Users performing Google searches related to the three congressional races the study focused on were significantly more likely to see pro-Democrat stories and links at the top of their results.
As Epstein’s previous studies have shown, this can have a huge impact on the decisions of undecided voters, who often assume that their search results are unbiased.
As I've pointed out previously, The Aviary has dropped precipitously in ranking since Google changed their algorithms and began their manipulation of information. We used to have a fairly high ranking, and it was possible to find articles from this website in Google searches, but no more. You have to specifically search for this site to find it. Our St. Louis colleague Jim Hoft has seen his Gateway Pundit drop in a similar fashion; TGP was one of the biggest sites around until they shadow banned him.
The liberals keep trying to argue that Donald Trump paying off "bimbo eruptions" is a violation of campaign finance law because it amounts to an "in kind" donation. How much is Google data manipulation worth? That is the mother of all in-kind donations.
A free press presupposes access. The war on "fake news" aka anyone who doesn't support the mainstream media/silicon valley/Democratic Party line is a purposeful attempt to smother free speech and freedom of the press. Conservative blogs ARE the free press, and we are doing the work the media Just Won't Do.
This is clearly a matter of restraint of trade.t falls under refusal to deal and exclusive dealing. What Google is doing is forcing the consumer to accept only certain companies as sellers of information. Imagine if there were only one food distributor, and that distributor decided to ban Pepsi-Cola because they had a deal with Coke. We wouldn't accept that, but we are told we must accept Google's choice for political, cultural, and intellectual consumption.
Google is essentially a Trust. Where is Teddy Roosevelt when you need him?
