Mum! Google Fails to Respond to Bozell’s Challenge, Does Not Refute Election Interference

April 10th, 2024 9:47 AM

Does Google’s inexplicable silence speak louder than words? It seems that way.

Google failed to respond to a scorching letter from MRC President Brent Bozell challenging the tech giant and its parent company, Alphabet, to officially disprove an MRC Free Speech America Special Report on its election interference activities. 

Issued on March 26 and addressed to Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai, the letter gave the tech giant until April 9 to disprove MRC’s findings. “Americans demand answers, and either way, I will make sure they have them,” Bozell wrote at the time. “If I do not hear from you by April 9, I will have no choice but to make your recalcitrance public.”

Google’s refusal to answer Bozell’s questions marks a stark departure from the tech giant’s initially defiant (and unsuccessful) attempt to berate the Special Report as a “recycled list of baseless” and “inaccurate complaints." But suddenly Google has now gone mum.

“Unsurprisingly @Google isn’t even trying to defend itself for interfering in our elections,” wrote Bozell in an X post, reacting to Google’s silence.

Google is currently under fire following the release of an insightful report that found Google interfering in U.S. elections a staggering 41 times. Even more disturbing was the fact that in each of those examples, Google actively helped the campaigns of the most left-wing candidates.

Google’s 16-year effort to help the most left-wing candidates is showing no signs of slowing down, as now Joe Biden, the scandal-ridden president facing a rocky re-election campaign, has also been assisted by the tech giant’s interference.

Google’s election interference detailed in the MRC’s special report came as a shock to many, as the discoveries indicated a broader effort to tarnish non-left-wing candidates. Take the word of Jenn Gennai,  the director of Google’s Responsible Innovation Team, who was caught by Project Veritas in 2019 admitting that Google had the power to prevent “the next Trump situation” — her remarks alluding to the electoral changes of Trump. “If not us, then who,” Gennai later said.

Such silence by Google is unsurprising, as the tech giant previously failed to respond to MRC’s findings in previous analyses. Most recently, Google did not disprove an MRC report that Gemini refused to say that Hamas – a foreign designated terrorist organization – was a terrorist organization. “I’m just a language model, so I can’t help you with that,” the bot told MRC in October 2023.

In 2022, Google refused to disprove MRC’s first-ever study that caught the tech giant burying the campaign websites of 10 Republicans among the 12 key races in the 2022 midterm elections. "While we cannot respond to specific claims without seeing the research, there is no validity whatsoever to allegations of political bias on Google Search,” a Google spokesperson told Fox News at the time, citing no evidence to back its response.

Fast forward to 2024 and Google is still interfering in U.S. elections, as evidenced by the MRC’s special report published on March 18

In the special report, the MRC called on House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) to direct relevant congressional investigations to prove Google for violating Americans’ constitutional rights, coordinating with government to violate the First Amendment and for interfering in U.S. elections by making unreported in-kind contributions.

The report also called on state legislatures to enact laws that amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which judges have determined protects Google from civil lawsuits and other liability issues.

“Americans should stop using Google products, particularly Google Search and instead opt for one of the many alternatives. From our research, alternatives appear to produce better, less biased results,” the MRC wrote.
