Trump Slams Google, Says Bias Against Conservatives 'Will Be Addressed'

Trump attacks Google, claims it prioritizes 'fake news' in searches

And, on Tuesday, he doubled down on claims that Google "rigged" its results to show only bad news stories about him. "They truly have taken advantage of the US, but not for long!" Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don't bias our results toward any political ideology. In the tweet, Trump states that when searching for "Trump News", 96% of the stories that appear are from what he calls the, "National Left-Wing Media".

Trump gave only once specific example, saying "Fake CNN is prominent". Some Republican U.S. lawmakers have also raised concerns about social media companies removing content from some conservatives, and have called Twitter's chief executive to testify before a House of Representatives panel on September 5. The agency claims that 96% of all Google search results lead to a liberal media outlet.

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".

Trump said it was "very dangerous" and a "serious situation-will be addressed".

Nuala O'Connor, president of the Washington-based Center for Democracy & Technology, said that while "algorithmic bias" is a legitimate question, there is no evidence of bias and that it would be worrisome if the government tried to step in with regulations.

Despite searches for "Hillary Clinton is a liar" trending higher than "Hillary Clinton is awesome" it would appear that Google automatically suggests the term that paints Clinton in a more positive light. "We're taking a look at it".

In July, Trump blasted Twitter for allegedly depressing the exposure of messages from its conservative users. "Not good" the president boomed, ironically on his Twitter account.

"Illegal?" he speculated, going on to accuse Google of "controlling what we can & cannot see". He did not specify what actions he would take, or say what laws may have been violated.

Twitter has denied it shadow banned. In an August 20 interview with Reuters, Trump referenced the recent decisions by Facebook and Apple News to remove conspiracy peddler Alex Jones from the platforms, calling the choice "really risky".

Tech companies have said they do not remove content for political reasons. In the past, Trump accused Twitter and Facebook of censorship. Trump added, without offering any details.

This figure seems to have been broadcast on the Lou Dobbs Tonight programme, a show on the Trump-friendly Fox Business Network, the evening before the president tweeted. Soon enough, stories about Trump's attack on the tech giant rose to the top of Google search results.
