Remember that book that people read in high school called 1984? Well if you don’t it’s about what the world would most likely look like if we turned into a totalitarian government. That includes government spying, loss of basic human rights, and intense censorship.
Well it turns out that the website “Google” has been using censorship for a specific period of time.
Everyone knows Google. It is one of the most active search engines on the Internet. I mean there is even a saying that goes around when someone asks a question. “Just Google it.” So obviously they have a tremendous amount of power, even if people don’t realize it.
If they censor anything, then it is going to affect a lot of people.
According to a YouTube channel called “SourceFed”, Google has tried to alter the way that people search for Hillary Clinton AND Donald Trump. They have also made it so that anyone who searches for “Muslim terrorist” will be directed to a page where the first link has an article that states there is “no correlation between Muslims and terrorism.”
They also show a picture of Donald Trump whenever someone searches for Adolf Hitler.
Matt Lieberman, the host of the SourceFed video, lays it out in plain English. “SourceFed has discovered that Google has been actively altering search recommendations in favor of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, so quietly that we were unable to see it for what it was until now.”
He also adds, “The intention is clear: Google is burying potential searches for terms that could have hurt Hillary Clinton (and her stances) in the primary elections over the past several months by manipulating recommendations on their site.”
Google did have a response to this, but it was an extremely weak one. They said that they were trying to clean up weak content and spam to “make the Internet a more pleasing place.” Really?
It is pretty obvious to anyone and everyone that Google was trying to help Clinton out as much as possible. They tried to bury any hurtful searches against Clinton. If they hadn’t done that, then who knows what could have happened in the primaries?
Bernie Sanders could have won for all we know. Well thanks to SourceFed and Matt Lieberman, people will now know that google tries to alter the searches. Now that this is out, it could change the election.
