For months, it has been readily apparent that Google, YouTube, and other mainstream media platforms were actively working to suppress the conservative beliefs of America.
This seemingly newfound animosity toward the right side of the aisle came only from the left’s intense hatred for President Donald Trump. For what reason? Seemingly because he was victorious over Hillary Clinton in November 2016, and for few other reasons at all.
With companies such as Google and YouTube, (Google’s video streaming platform), being novel in their gargantuan size, there are no set rules about just how these very public platforms can operate only as private entities, with no regard to Americans’ Constitutional right to free speech.
Now, however, we finally have something resembling a smoking gun in the case.
In sworn testimony, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress last month that his company does not “manually intervene” on any particular search result. Yet an internal discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News reveals Google regularly intervenes in search results on its YouTube video platform – including a recent intervention that pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for “abortion.”Trending:
The term “abortion” was added to a “blacklist” file for “controversial YouTube queries,” which contains a list of search terms that the company considers sensitive. According to the leak, these include some of these search terms related to: abortion, abortions, the Irish abortion referendum, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and anti-gun activist David Hogg.
The existence of the blacklist was revealed in an internal Google discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News by a source inside the company who wishes to remain anonymous. A partial list of blacklisted terms was also leaked to Breitbart by another Google source.
President Trump has hinted in the past about taking a look at regulations regarding free speech on the internet. Perhaps this will be the impetus to real action.
