The Top Story on Google is Proof Media Bias Really Does Exist

Published

One of the big stories of the day on Tuesday was an allegation that Google News uses a biased algorithm that causes fewer links to conservative news sites to show up in top story results.

Well, the top trending story listed in the results that day certainly didn’t do much to help dispel those concerns. It was a story from CNN defending Google News.

Yeah. No bias here at all. Nope.

Trending: President Trump Speaks About His Future Plans During Lunch At One of His Golf Clubs

When readers went into Google, clicked “news,” then clicked “top stories” in the U.S., the No. 1 link was a CNN article headlined “Trump slams Google search as ‘rigged’ — but it’s not.”

Has Big Tech Gone Too Far Banning the President?

The piece lays out what President Trump has said about reports of Google bias, then provides a platform for the search engine to deny, deny, deny.

“Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology,” a Google spokesperson told CNN. “We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment.”

The hilarity came after PJ Media conducted an informal study on Monday and found that liberal news outlets appear in Google News search results far more frequently than conservative outlets, which are often completely missing. When searching “Trump,” for instance, CNN had “nearly twice as many results returned as the second-place finisher, the Washington Post.”

“Other left-leaning outlets also fared well, including NBC, CNBC, The Atlantic, and Politico,” PJ Media reported, adding that the “only right-leaning sites to appear in the top 100 were The Wall Street Journal and Fox News with 3 and 2 results respectively.”

After the PJ Media story emerged, Trump got in on the act, writing on Twitter: “Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,” the president proclaimed. “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.”

President Trump was none too happy with all of the fervor concerning Google and ended up sending a warning to social media platforms saying they are “treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful.”

The president spoke to reporters after a meeting with the president of FIFA, saying “Google has really taken advantage of a lot of people and I think that’s a very serious thing and it’s a very serious charge. They better be careful because they can’t do that to people.”

What kind of consequences Trump could be alluding to in both statements is unknown at the time, but the fact remains that these companies have crossed over from simple, private online businesses to being premiere sources of the dissemination of information in America.

This means they act more like media and news distributors than they do social networks, thus, the rules that apply to journalistic outlets may have some bearing on them as well.

Left-wing violence is not violence to the left. Rioting, looting, fighting back against cops – those people are the real patriots, they’ll say. But when a group of supposed conservatives are literally invited by cops into the Capitol building in Washington DC, it’s insurrection! Check out what happened on Friday near Seattle. Did you hear about any of this on the news? From KIRO7: BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Protestors broke into City Hall in Bellingham on Friday, forcing the mayor to be escorted out of the building for safety. Mayor Seth Fleetwood said it is impossible to ignore the parallels to the storming of the Washington D.C. Capitol Building on Jan. 6. CONTINUED: “It was unsettling,” Fleetwood said. “They banged on the door and we got word they had somehow broken it open and were entering, and I was advised to leave,” he said. Fleetwood said he was ushered out a back door and driven away from the building to his car.

Pro-Choice Protesters Storm Catholic Church In Middle of Mass, Call for Abortion On-Demand

Is there even a word for this kind of depravity?

“Two, four, six, eight this church teaches hate!” That’s what these crazed radicals chanted when they stormed into a Catholic Church like a pack of imbeciles. Considering Joe Biden is a “devout Catholic” – LOL – he’ll surely have something to say, right? This is not a story you’ll see on news broadcasts tonight. From Catholic News Agency: “Fund abortion, not cops,” said one of their signs. “Abortion on Demand. End Hyde Now,” said another, apparently referring to the Hyde Amendment, which bans most federal funding for abortion. At least two protesters wore vests that read “clinic escort” on the back. Police and church officials escorted the protestors outside, where some protesters appeared to make obscene gestures at them, according to video from The Columbus Dispatch. Friday marked the 48th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which mandated permissive abortion laws nationwide.
