Leaked Documents: Google Doesn't Just Blacklist Sites Via Its Neutral Algorithm. They Also Hand-Manipulate It To Blacklist Conservatives.

How many lies do these guys get to tell to Congress before someone is criminally referred?

The Daily Caller:

Google does manipulate its search results manually, contrary to the company’s official denials, documents obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller indicate.

Two official policies dubbed the "misrepresentation policy" and the "good neighbor policy" inform the company's "XPA news blacklist," which is maintained by Google's Trust & Safety team. "T&S will be in charge of updating the blacklist as when there is a demand," reads one of the documents shared with The Daily Caller.

...

Sundar Pichai testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Dec. 11 of last year. Democratic California Rep. Zoe Lofgren asked why a search for the term "idiot" returned a photo of President Trump. In response, Pichai said, "This is working at scale, we don't manually intervene on any particular search result."

And yet they are, manually, through human intervention, adding to and tweaking the list to suit their biases.


On the blacklist are a number of conservative sites, including Gateway Pundit, Matt Walsh's blog, Gary North's blog "teapartyeconomist.com," Caroline Glick's website, Conservative Tribune, a property of The Western Journal and the website of the American Spectator.

"You can't trust the human judgment of Google's Trust and Safety team," said the source at Google with knowledge of their practices.

Meanwhile, via PJ's Live Blog, Illinois is considering a law to make it illegal for a Tech Giant to turn on your computer's microphone and eavesdrop on you without your permission and Amazon and Google are shrieking about how unfair that is -- and the major Donor Class villain the Chamber of Commerce (here, the Illinois Chamber of Commerce) is spreading their talking points like they're campaign dollars being showered on Republican congressmen.

Let's do everything for trillion dollar corporations, including insulating them from lawsuits if they turn on your microphones and spy on you without your permission.

Because the only reason we're conservatives is to do bizarre favors and provide special protections for trillion dollar corporations that hate us!

There are literally no other priorities in the conservative movement apart from propping up the plutocracy!
