Trump says he will "address" Google’s "suppressing" of conservative news

Donald Trump has claimed that Google's search results are biased towards liberal media outlets.

Trump and the White House did not provide any detail on how they would probe Google, but the new Republican chair of the Federal Trade Commission, Joseph Simons, said in June that the agency would keep a close eye on big tech companies that dominate the internet. When you consider that Trump's deemed every non-Fox News outlet to be "Fake News" - including the sites for CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, the New York Times, and the Washington Post - then, sure, this would fit his narrative. Conservative media, he claimed, is "shut out".

The anchor's comments came hours after Trump accused Google of rigging its search engine results against conservative news.

'Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good.

The search engine said it issues hundreds of improvements to its algorithms each year to ensure searches always yield "high-quality content in response to users' queries". In a fiery tweet Tuesday morning, August 28, Trump slammed Google, claiming that the search engine favored news sources from sites that publish negative views on him in its search results.

"I won't mention names but when they take certain people off of Twitter or Facebook and they're making that decision, that is really a risky thing because that could be you tomorrow", Trump said. She said she performed the search several times using different computers, and the results did not differ considerably.

While there is little to suggest that internet firms actively suppress content for political reasons and many conservatives have large online followings, public perception is another matter.

"I think Google has really taken advantage of a lot of people, and I think that's a very serious thing".

Trump has made similar complaints recently, but he targeted Google on Tuesday. Today, Google Search is much more complex, utilizing complex machine-learning functions like RankBrain and an evolving set of algorithms with names like Hummingbird, Panda, Penguin and Pigeon.

It is likely that the United States president was referring to a viral news story posted on Saturday by the website PJ Media, which concluded that the vast majority of Google News results for the president were from left-leaning outlets.

Google isn't the first tech company to be in Trump's crosshairs.

Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey also admitted in a recent interview with CNN that he himself and most of the company's employees share a "left-leaning" bias.

While Bolyard admitted her study was far from scientific, she also cited a far more in-depth study performed by SEO company "Can I Rank", which found "that top search results were nearly 40% more likely to contain pages with a "Left" or "Far Left" slant the they were pages from the right".
