Trump attacks 'left-wing' Google search results

Trump attacks Google, claims it prioritizes 'fake news' in searches

Donald Trump has accused Google of "rigging" search results - giving greater prominence to negative stories about him while suppressing positive articles from conservative news organisations. The top story is from Fox News, and there are now two mentions of Trump's complaints about Google searches. Fake CNN is prominent.

"Every year, we issue hundreds of improvements to our algorithms to ensure they surface high-quality content in response to users' queries", Google said.

In July, Trump blasted Twitter for allegedly depressing the exposure of messages from its conservative users.

The company reportedly determined the bias of the publications by using a partisan spectrum from the Sharyl Attkisson's media bias chart.

A test conducted by The Epoch Times on August 28, using similar methods, found similar results.

White House flags back up after McCain death
Ambassador to Vietnam Daniel Kritenbrink writes a note in a book of condolences for the late U.S. Vice President Mike Pence is expected to represent the White House at McCain's funeral service.

The Washington Post noted: "But nowhere did the editor and blogger reckon with the fact that the sheer volume of content produced by different outlets plays a major role in determining the share of results they claim".

Shadow banning is a term used to describe the practice by social media platforms of reducing or limiting the visibility of a user's content. He promised the "very serious situation" would be "addressed", but didn't give specifics.

The incredibly slanted study by PJ Media lists many popular sites on the left included the Donald Trump's favorite targets such as The New York Times, CNN, the Washington Post, and ABC News. Now, Mr. Trump's attention has turned to Google and its search technology.

"Google also had fired engineer James Damore for criticizing the company's 'Ideological Echo Chamber.' The company had claimed he had been fired for 'advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.' Damore is suing Google, saying it mistreats whites, males and conservatives". Trump's tweet came after reports that several high-ranking conservatives believed the social network was blocking them from showing up in its search function.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Verizon sued by CA firefighters for slowing speeds during wildfire
Bowden said service was slowed to 1/200th of the typical speed this summer, after firefighters had consumed more than 25 Gigabits. In its own statement after the lawsuit addendum was filed, Verizon denied that this move was related to net neutrality.

Among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, 85 percent said social media sites intentionally censor political viewpoints, according to Pew.

He has also previously hit out at Amazon, which he says hurts small businesses and benefits from a favourable deal with the US Postal Service.

Google uses automated programs called "spiders" to search the internet and index pages based on keywords.

Trump's accusation of bias on the part of Google comes as social media companies have suspended accounts, banned certain users and removed content as they face pressure from the U.S. Congress to police foreign propaganda and fake accounts aimed at disrupting American politics, including operations tied to Iran and Russian Federation.

The biggest news out of all of this - at least according to the amusing people on Twitter - might be that the president uses both a computer and Google.
