Media Research Center President Brent Bozell responded today to news of a leaked internal report from Google that suggested in order to prevent certain political events, tech companies would have to start censoring web content. "This story confirms our worst fear...."
Is the world’s largest search engine really free? And, if not, are its users? An 85-page document leaked to Breitbart argued that in order to prevent certain political events, tech companies would have to start censoring web content.
Google as an international company seems to have different priorities. The tech giant announced on October 9 that it was dropping out of the $10 billion dollar contract bidding for the Pentagon initiative known as JEDI.
It’s hard to believe that people with political agendas are capable of building unbiased products. Google certainly faces that test. After Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Saturday, October 6, several employees and executives at Google expressed their rage on Twitter.
In leaked emails published in a Breitbart report, a Google search engineer made strong arguments for censoring members of the GOP. In an email thread dated June 19, 2018, Blake Lemoine, a senior software engineer, commented on Rep. Marsha Blackburn R-TN and her Fox News op-ed, also published in June.
No consent. No disclosure. No escape. For legions of unwitting students and teachers across the country, this is the dangerous, de facto data policy Google has imposed over their school districts. An estimated 80 million students and teachers are now signed up for free “G Suite for Education” accounts (formerly known as Google Apps for Education); more than 25 million students and teachers now use Google Chromebooks. A Google logon is the key to accessing homework, quizzes, tests, group discussions, presentations, spreadsheets and other “seamless communication.”
Big tech companies want to help impact the upcoming midterm election. On National Voter Registration Day, several top social media/search media firms — including Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat — urged users to register to vote.
A recent study released by Stanford University measures just how much fake news is on Facebook and Twitter. However, the data had a built-in bias and slammed conservative content as “fake news.” In the study, “Trends in the Diffusion of Misinformation on Social Media,” Hunt Allcott, Matthew Gentzkow, and Chuan Yu measured fake news on Facebook and Twitter from January 2015 to July 2018.
Google keeps waving off concerns that they’ve been showing bias against conservative viewpoints. Yet new reports indicate that a group of the company’s programmers discussed ways they could use the search engine to combat Donald Trump’s travel ban online.
Google has more power and control than most people realize and a top tech researcher is warning about it. In an interview at the D.C. premiere of the Creepy Line, a documentary on the dangers of Google and Facebook, Dr. Robert Epstein told the Media Research Center that Google was building personal profiles of users mainly through Gmail
It’s hard to paint a positive picture of big tech companies, especially when it becomes apparent that they are manipulating users. On September 19, The Creepy Line, a documentary on Facebook and Google, will premiere in Washington D.C. “Facebook and Google started with a great idea and great ideals,” said journalist Peter Schweizer in his film.
FoxNews.com asked MRC president and founder Brent Bozell for an opinion piece on the unfolding news about Google's left-wing culture, and how it leaks into their products, especially after Trump won the 2016 election. On Friday, it's on the Fox News home page.
