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.
It just got a lot harder to believe that Google doesn’t have any bias against conservatives. After Tucker Carlson released a leaked email from a Google director saying that the company tried to influence Latino voters, Breitbart released a video of Google execs talking to a large audience of employees the day after the election. Google co-founder Sergey Brin told the company that he was “deeply offended” by the results of the election, which “conflicted with many of the company’s values.”
RESTON, VA – Today, the Media Research Center (MRC) said Congress must hold hearings to investigate Google for possibly trying to fix the presidential election following a bombshell report by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Monday night.

In the competition of ideas, you can't win the game if you're not on the playing field. That's why Silicon Valley bigwigs' stubborn refusal to put business above their own personal partisan biases doesn't just rankle. It reeks. Equal access to social media is not just about sharing food pics, pet videos, makeup tutorials and travelogues. It's about ensuring the ability to disseminate and distribute political speech on the world's biggest platforms.
MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor recently appeared on the Fox Business Network’s After the Bell to discuss President Donald Trump’s concerns about conservative censorship online and to call for "fairness." Co-host David Asman asked what could be constituted as illegal censorship by big tech companies such as Facebook or Google on Aug. 29. Gainor replied, “I think some of the concerns that have come up for conservatives involve politics, and so if you start to limit people’s access to campaign information, that gets into territory of the Federal Election Commission.”
Men did land on the moon, and social media/search platforms are biased against conservatives. But to lefty Hollywood stars and media pundits, Donald Trump noting the latter is tantamount to conspiracy theories denying the former. The censorship of conservatives by Facebook, Twitter, Google and YouTube has been proven, and is on-going. But the left has always had to deny help from biased media, because its arguments can’t stand on their own without help from information gatekeepers.
