Oops! Google “Glitch” Reveals This Dirty Little Secret The Leftist Tech Company Thought They Had Hid
(Tea Party 247) If youve ever tried to search the internet for a specific news story using Google, you know that Google most definitely suppresses conservative and alternative news sites. Its not even done subtly. Youll never find a conservative news source pop up in a Google search unless you specifically request it and even then, its still hit or miss.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress that the company does not do anything manually to affect search results for users but as it turns out the glitch that has been preventing users from being directed to conservative news sites ended up revealing on Tuesday a blacklist of websites. Totally sounds like an innocent glitch. Right. Sure.
Newswars has the details:
On Tuesday, Google users discovered the search engine was not providing redirect links to right-leaning news sources including Infowars, Breitbart, The Daily Caller, Newsbusters, The Bongino Report, Human Events, and even news aggregator the Drudge Report.
At least one left-leaning website, Occupy Democrats, was also affected, reported Mediaite. Legacy media outlets including The New York Times and Washington Post did not appear to be harmed.
The company later rectified the issue and chalked it up to a glitch, but the technical error pointed to the existence of a blacklist, according to researchers.
It appears to have revealed the existence of another blacklist that disproportionately targets conservatives, software engineer Mike Wacker told Mediaite. The glitch is that sites on this blacklist disappeared from Google search results, but the existence of the list is very much by design. And that raises a major question: Why was this blacklist created in the first place, and what else is it used for?
Dr. Robert Epstein, whose own work has previously been censored by Google, agreed with Wackers assessment, saying, Its likely that a person or algorithm at Google added breitbart.com and other URLs to one or more of the companys blacklists.
Then, perhaps after some pushback, someone pulled those URLs off the blacklists.
If such a list does exist, it would appear to confirm reports last August by Project Veritas, which documented Google whistleblower Zach Vorhies claims of a document called, news black list site for Google Now, a master list of sites restricted by the company which included sites such as The National Enquirer, The Gateway Pundit and Infowars.
Vorhies called Googles actions at the time hypocritical at the least and its perjury at the worst after CEO Sundar Pichai testified to Congress to say they do not promote left-leaning, Democratic news over that of more Conservative outlets or merely outlets it does not rate.
In congressional testimony circa December 2018 concerning censorship and Googles work with China on Project Dragonfly, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told the House Judiciary Committee the search giant does not manually intervene on any search result.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai: "We don't manually intervene on any particular search result."

In a scientific study published after the 2016 presidential election, Dr. Epstein asserted that Google used bias in their search results which led to the manipulation of scores of unsuspecting voters. That means that it was indeed the left who partook in efforts to rig the election, not Donald Trump.
You can bet theyre trying to do it again this year and if youve been using the internet over the past four years, surely youve noticed how much more biased Google and other Silicon Valley tech companies have become.
There are two problems here, Epstein said. One is the unfettered, unregulated power to suppress content around the world. The second is the complete lack of transparency. The problem with content suppression is that you dont know what you dont know.
This seems to be the root problem with liberalism. They just dont know what they dont know.
