Trump says Google is ‘rigged’ with bad news about him


Trump says Google is ‘rigged’ with bad news about him



US President Donald Trump claimed Tuesday that Google results were
“rigged” because searches for “Trump News” brought up negative stories
about him, and questioned whether this was illegal.




The president has attacked US social media giants in the
past days for allegedly censoring conservative voices, an unfounded
claim widely believed by his followers.




“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media,” the president tweeted on Tuesday.



“In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that
almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent.
Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal?”




According to Trump, “96% of results on ‘Trump News’ are from National Left-Wing Media,” which he describes as “very dangerous.”




“Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and
hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we
can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be
addressed!”




A Pew Research Center survey released in June found 43 percent of
Americans think major technology firms support the views of liberals
over conservatives, and 72 percent accepted the idea that social media
platforms actively censor opposing political views.




Among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, 85 percent
said they think social media sites intentionally censor political
viewpoints, Pew found.




However various studies suggest conservatives are thriving on social
media. Twitter and Facebook have both denied bias in policing their
platforms.
