Google versus Fair Elections

Because if you can cheat, why bother trying to convince people you are right? From the NY Post: How Google manipulates search to favor liberals and tip elections.

While the focus has been on Twitter and Facebook’s censorship and liberal bias, the worst Big Tech culprit of all has been getting a free pass — and now it’s coming for our children.

That’s the warning from research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein, a Californian Democrat with a Harvard Ph.D, who has spent the last decade monitoring Google’s manipulation of newsfeeds, search results and YouTube suggestions.

It has been a long time since Google Alphabet stopped using "Don't Be Evil" as a motto. It seems that they have pretty much turned 180 degrees from that and are just in the "Let's censor anything we want" phase.

  1. From the NYP link:

    YouTube’s “Up Next” suggestions to adults for the next video to watch were biased towards liberal sources 76% of the time.

    But for children and teens, initial data from the past three months shows the percentage of suggested videos on YouTube which come from liberal sources is 96%.

    “That’s how aggressive they are with our kids,” he said this week. “Because they think they’re gods. And no one has ever taken them to task, ever.”

    ^ I had no idea their algos were THAT bad and skewed.
