NewsBusters Podcast: Search Lurch, or Google Tilts Internet to the Left

March 20th, 2024 10:53 PM

A new study by Free Speech America found that Google was guilty of election interference on 41 occasions from 2008 to today. Dan Schneider, vice president of the MRC's Free Speech America project, explains all their findings.

In 2008, Google endorsed the radical Sen. Barack Obama just after he joined the Senate in 2005, and censored support for Sen. Hillary Clinton. They'll suppress Democrats who are opposing Google's favorite candidate. They tend to support the most radical Democrat who they feel can win.

In 2016, Google employed both its algorithm and its “partners” in futile attempts to push Hillary Clinton over the finish line. Shortly after the election of Trump, at a company-wide meeting, Google’s CFO Ruth Porat promised Google employees that the company would use its “great strength and resources and reach” to advance its leftist values. 

During the 2020 Democratic primary, The tech giant disabled then-presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard’s Google Ads account just as she became the most searched candidate following the first Democratic Party primary debate. Again, Democrats going against Google's grain were suppressed just like conservatives are.

We also discuss the Left's overwrought writing about the Heritage Foundation's Project 2025 to help staff a potential second Trump administration. Journalists assume that since most long-serving establishment Republicans have walked away from Trump, anyone who would serve in his executive branch now must be a brain-dead cultist amateur who will destroy the government from the inside.
