After waves of criticism — from accusations of bias to firing employees for their political beliefs — Google has rolled out new internal rules for people of all political stripes. Don’t be political. Recode wrote about Google’s new rules, announced Thursday August 22, which include “restrictions on political expression and guidelines on internal debates about company activity.” The guidelines themselves forbid “disrupting the workday to have a raging debate over politics” and encouraged employees to report violations via a “central flagging tool.”
Several previous Google insiders have confirmed that the Big Tech giant discriminates against right-leaning journalists, pundits and personalities — not to mention free-thinking employees within its own workforce who've been persecuted, fired and even harassed by police for their whistleblowing. Leaked documents also show that a small cadre of meddling social justice overlords at Google Central Command manually manipulate search engine results — despite the company elite's brazen denial of the practice at a recent congressional hearing.
Allegedly, Google did everything it could within its power to help Hillary Clinton win in 2016. It didn’t work. So did it happen?Dr. Robert Epstein testified at a Senate hearing in July that Google had helped influence 2.6 million votes in favor of Hillary Clinton in 2016. On August 19, Hillary Clinton slammed his study, claiming it had been “debunked.” Epstein, a Clinton supporter, responded with his first ever “twitter storm,” in essence factually disarming Clinton’s comment. He tweeted, “Hillary Clinton told blatant lies about me today.”
On Tuesday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and other conservative leaders released a letter calling on Google to explain reports and allegations that the search engine is attempting to block conservative sites and exclude voices that don’t fit the liberal narrative. (A similar letter has also been sent to members of Congress, asking them to investigate.) The letter to Google can be found, in its entirety, below:
Google employees aren’t happy with the idea of working with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement or the Customs and Border Protection. A petition written by Googlers called for Google to avoid working with ICE and the CBP, as well as the Office of Refugee Resettlement was published August 14.
Check for flying pigs, 5 LGBTQ+ YouTube channels famous for bearded drag queens, progressive politics, and sex-ed are agreeing with conservatives on censorship. No less than five channels have joined together for a lawsuit against YouTube and its parent company Google. According to Buzzfeed, they have accused the Big Tech platform of “hiding their videos, removing subscribers, and denying advertising.” They claim that certain keywords in the titles of their videos such as "gay," "transgender," or "bisexual," can get them penalized.
Project Veritas dropped a massive 950-page leak from Google whistleblower Zachary Vorhies that showed how the company allegedly manipulates search results. Among the topics Google/YouTube manipulated were pro-life advocacy, questioning various terror attacks, and several political organizations including the Heritage Foundation. The August 14 leak also explained how the “Twiddler” system lets Google/YouTube workers rank search results based upon what the companies want emphasized or de-emphasized.
In the extensive document drop from former Google engineer Zach Vorhies, a section dedicated to hiring diversity, called “TGIF: Diversity at Google,” revealed a troubling aspect about Google. Discussions among executives and employees alike revealed that Google was willing to work extra hard in order to achieve its idea of perfect diversity in its workforce.
Google used a blacklist and a blocklist for search results. And those two lists reportedly blocked a large amount of conservative content from the app — including NewsBusters. A Google whistleblower, Zachary Vorhies, shared several documents with James O’Keefe and Project Veritas that were released August 14.
A viral video showing CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo threatening to throw a Trump supporter down the stairs has been removed from YouTube by the platform. The YouTube channel “That’s the POINT with Brandon” posted a video showing Cuomo threatening a Trump supporter.
AllSides, a media technology company that provides media bias ratings and balanced news across the political spectrum, conducted an audit of Google’s “Top Stories” section following the two mass shootings that occurred in Dayton, OH and El Paso, TX last weekend. The findings reveal a heavy preference for CNN and left-leaning media outlets overall, reinforcing previous audits completed by AllSides and researchers at Northwestern University.
Google’s reported election manipulation may have already resulted in unforeseen consequences. President Donald Trump is ready to fight back.
