BROWSER BIAS: This Explains Why GOOGLE Seems So Damned Political

Published on October 19, 2016

Maybe it’s time to switch to Bing.

Hey Google… Look Up ‘New Web Browsers’.

If it seemed like Google was running interference for the Hillary Campaign … they probably were.

Maybe you came across this quick little example of ‘Browser Bias’.

Do you know the name Eric Schmidt? He’s working for the Hillary campaign. Why should you care?

He’s also the chief executive of ‘Alphabet’ … the parent company to Google.

Eric Schmidt, the chief executive of Alphabet, Google’s parent company, is working directly with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, according to a memo contained within an email released by WikiLeaks.

“Discreet conversations” of forming “working relationships” with companies such as Facebook and Apple were also facilitated as early as October 2014, the memo stated. This is at least six months prior to when Clinton announced her candidacy for president.

The document was attached to an Oct. 26, 2014 email sent from Robby Mook, now Clinton’s campaign manager, to Cheryl Mills, a longtime Clinton aide; David Plouffe, Barack Obama’s previous campaign manager; and John Podesta, Clinton’s current campaign chairman whose email account was compromised. — Free Beacon

Facebook… Apple… they’re in there too.

But there is nothing in it for them. Right?

Eric’s team is also developing products that are not, strictly speaking, critical for launch, but would be extremely useful to have as early in the cycle as possible. Chief among these is the system that consolidates data from disparate sources to allow you to develop more complete user profiles and therefore more effective programs. I shared the concern, voiced by many, that the initial scope for these products was overly ambitious and unrealistic; they have since been cut down to a much more manageable size, without sacrificing core functionalities. (Of note, many of the problems that stifled us in 2012 have since been tackled by private companies with whom we have relationships and whose tools we can license rather than attempt to replicate.) I am cautiously optimistic that the most important of these will be completed in time for launch; if they are delayed, I have no reason to believe they will not be ready shortly thereafter, long before potential challengers in either party will have been able to build anything similar.

But we can trust that there is nothing inappropriate going on there. No backroom deals, not special treatment. And both parties will get equal treatment with the search algorithms.

Becuase it is very important that we keep our system impartial.

Share if Hillary’s backroom deals with internet companies are sketchy at best, and Orwellian at worst.
