Every day it seems Tech giants are under fire for yet another example of using their influence for political aims. Do you accept this ‘innocent’ explanation or no?
There’s no question that Silicon Valley skews heavily to the Left. Even Zuckerberg admitted as much when he sat before Congress.
Google is no exception.
We’ve seen leaked footage of Google employees having a cry-session during a business meeting right after their beloved Hillary lost.

Yeah, if the goal is to seem politically ‘impartial’, you’re doing it wrong.
Is there any wonder that even Democrats were raising some skeptical questions about their objectivity:

Do you buy it?
Let’s have a look at some of the other reasons Google has found its way into the news cycle:
What about all this talk about ‘impacting an election’ that we’ve seen lately. Has there been any talk about inherent bias in Google rankings? After all, the EU slapped them with a $2.7 Billion judgment in 2017 for preferring their own content against that of others. And they lost another judgment of $5 Billion in 2018 for dubious business practices forcing Android users to use their apps.
But they want us to trust them not to abuse their political influence.
Even before the election, people noticed a leftward Google bias compared to :

We’ve seen Youtube demonetize or restrict videos with Conservative ideas, no matter how benign the content. (PragerU for instance, sued over it. They a Restricted setting to prevent videos from being seen in libraries or classrooms.)
And here was a Top Google Exec weighing in after Kavanaugh was elevated to the Supreme Court.
So, it’s somehow just a coincidence that the bias of the algorithm just HAPPENS to match the admitted biases of Silicon Valley?
