Report Reveals Percentage of Google Search Results for Trump News From Liberal Outlets. The Number is Astounding.

Published

If you’re a conservative person who has taken to Google to research topics and news items related to President Trump, you might have noticed that an overwhelming percentage of the top results seem to come from strictly left-wing sources.

Well, as it turns out, you’re not crazy or paranoid. Google really does seem to favor liberal outlets.

The actual numbers attached to this are astounding.

PJ Media’s Paula Bolyard’s recent study on the issue of Google bias suggests it’s the latter. Bolyard found that of the first 100 results provided by Google for “Trump news,” nearly all were from left-leaning outlets.

Bolyard notes that “Google has maintained that all outlets are treated fairly, but nevertheless, conservative sites have reported reduced search traffic and, in the case of Google-owned YouTube, content creators have been banned and demonetized.” The suspicion that left-wing bias pervades the company was only heightened by the famous firing of conservative James Damore.

To test the bias theory, Bolyard searched for Trump using the news tab and then used the following “left” vs. “right” leaning chart provided by former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson to designate the political slant of each site:

The apparent bias was “much worse” than she expected. Out of the first 100 results, only five stories by right-leaning sites made Google’s search results: three by the Wall Street Journal and two by Fox News.

Of all sites, CNN received by far the most attention. When Bolyard tried it on multiple computers registered to different people, she got about the same results. “While not scientific, the results suggest a pattern of bias against right-leaning content,” she writes. Here’s the breakdown of the top 10 sites that had the most results in her initial search, only one of which is right-leaning: 1. CNN (21), 2. Washington Post (11), 3. NBC (11), 4. CNBC (8), T5. The Atlantic (5), T5. Politico (5), T5. New York Times (5), 8. Vox (4), T9. CBS (3) and T9. Wall Street Journal (3).

Bolyard notes that Google is constantly tweaking the algorithm. One significant change in May 2017 particularly impacted PJ Media, she writes, claiming that the site, along with other conservative sites, has “yet to recover the lost traffic” from that change.

This is pretty crazy, but it’s hardly surprising. Google has not at all been shy about their support for liberal causes and politicians, especially in light of the election of Donald Trump to the office of president.

The real question to focus on is whether their algorithm is purposefully targeting conservatives or not and whether or not it’s okay for the company to limit the freedom of expression of conservative news outlets.

The answers to these questions may seem obvious, but things aren’t always what they seem.

WATCH: Unearthed Clip Shows Rashida Tlaib EXPLODE On Trump, Gets Dragged Out of Event

OH…MY…GOOD…NESS!!

Then-GOP nominee Donald Trump was giving a speech. Rashida Tlaib was in attendance at the event in 2016, two years before she won her seat in Congress. She. Went. Bananas. Bonkers. Wild. Crazy. Nutso. SEE IT: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1152711615877398528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152711615877398528&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Funhinged-video-emerges-of-screaming-rashida-tlaib-escorted-out-of-trump-rally-watch%2F Yeah.

If she’s not wearing the Palestinian flag or meeting with anti-Israel activists she’s introducing articles of impeachment against Trump. If she’s not caught on video saying “impeach that motherf*****” Trump, she’s claiming all members of her party are racist. It’s kind of never-ending with this one. Now, Tlaib is saying she’ll go on a hunger strike in order to get ICE to “shut down.” Oh, and she wants her fans to follow her lead. From Free Beacon: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) urged her supporters to join her in a hunger strike to push for action to “shut down” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), arguing the radical push to abolish ICE can’t be achieved by Congress. Tlaib, headlining a Detroit fundraiser this past weekend for the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights, complained of colleagues who are constantly “policing” what she says and lack willingness to embrace bold stands such as abolishing ICE. She called on her activist audience to join her in a hunger strike at the border. Tlaib noted, “It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress.” She added, “I want you all to shut them down, we can shut them down. Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.” Concluding, “I know what they’re going to say, they’ll go, ‘What do you mean Rashida?’ Well I’ll tell you. There are some people that are using hunger strike, all these…

BUSTED! Video Resurfaces Of Pelosi Saying ‘We Certainly Don’t’ Need More Undocumented

Oh, is that right?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used to talk an awful lot like President Trump, back in the day. In fact, old (…or young?) Pelosi did not care for illegal aliens. She even went as far as saying “we certainly don’t” need more of them. See for yourself: https://twitter.com/IWV/status/1152186873252651014?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152186873252651014&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-surfaces-showing-hypocrite-pelosi-sounding-a-lot-like-trump%2F Pelosi doesn’t get along well with young House Democrats. She took a major swipe at AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and another freshman liberal in a way that caught Twitter’s attention. See for yourself: Speaker Pelosi says ⁦⁦@AOC⁩, ⁦@IlhanMN⁩, ⁦@AyannaPressley⁩ and ⁦⁦@RashidaTlaib “have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.” https://twitter.com/joshjame/status/1147615395018354688?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1147615395018354688&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F07%2F06%2Fgavel-drop-nancy-pelosi-says-the-freshman-four-have-their-twitter-world-and-just-four-votes%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/RobertGeist/status/1147663330049515526?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1147663330049515526&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F07%2F06%2Fgavel-drop-nancy-pelosi-says-the-freshman-four-have-their-twitter-world-and-just-four-votes%2F Do we still do the mic drop thing?
