Google accused of manipulating searches, burying negative stories about Hillary Clinton

Here's another, slightly different story on this topic: http://www.inquisitr.com/3170718/croo...

Interesting that I can get Lying Ted to come up as an autocomplete suggestion just by typing "lyi" but I have to type "Crooked Hill" before anything with Hillary's name will come up as an autocomplete suggestion... and even then it is "Crooked Hillary Bernie" so she's not standing alone. (See attached screenshots).

    Google is a private company. They have every right to do what they wish with their search engine. The fact that they monopolize the search engine field is the problem that WE created. Not something they will wish to fix because they obviously like the power they have. Maybe WE should?

      As has been pointed out, there is a difference between the rights of a privately held company and that company's ethics. A company may have the right to do as they please with whomever they wish to support, but that support may be morally putrid. Thus, they can be criticized for their lack of ethics. Then comes the question of whether they are using their power as the foremost in their field to force others to do their bidding by using the power of the government through their quid pro quo with the president.

        Oh, I agree. They have the right, but "should they?" is the question. Market forces have a way of punishing bad behavior. Because they are so high in the sky big, for crony reasons or natural, it will only take longer.

        However, if anyone is advocating using the "right kind" of government to regulate this bad behavior out of Google, that's frankly playing into the hands of big government statists.

        Is it possible to stop ALL cronyism? Knowing human nature, probably not. So, what is the answer?

    More on Google's filthy looter hands and support for Hillary from wikileaks (via infowars)
    http://www.infowars.com/wikileaks-ass...

    "“[Google] is directly engaged in Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” Assange said. “The chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, set up a company to run the digital component of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”

    As reported by Quartz in late 2015, an under-the-radar startup known as “The Groundwork” was funded by Schmidt “to ensure that Clinton has the engineering talent needed to win the election.”

    By utilizing “data analytics and digital outreach as vital ingredients that allow candidates to find, court, and turn out critical voter blocs,” The Groundwork could significantly boost Clinton’s exposure.

    “Groundwork has been tasked with building the technological infrastructure to ingest massive amounts of information about voters, and develop tools that will help the campaign target them for fundraising, advertising, outreach, and get-out-the-vote efforts,” the article states.

    Assange went on to further build his case by noting the prevalence of Google power players that emerged in the former secretary of state’s emails as well.

    “We should understand that Google… is intensely aligned with U.S. exceptionalism… personally at the top aligned with Hillary Clinton’s election campaign and almost certainly once Hillary Clinton becomes president, those people in Google, like Jared Cohen, will be placed into positions around the new Clinton presidency…”

    Cohen, the founder of “Google Ideas,” a foreign policy-focused think tank now known as “Jigsaw,” was revealed in the email release to be collaborating with Clinton and media outlet Al Jazeera in an attempt to facilitate regime change in Syria."

    The fact is that all popular media slavishly kisses up to the socialist fringe because that group can always be bought with publicity and propaganda. The ancient statement about "No one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public." is still true. Google, as a private enterprise, has the right to do as they please with their company but so do the Koch Brothers. The difference is that the libs get their knickers all in a knot and pretend that they have no wealthy supporters. Articles like this exposing their lies are the only defense.

    Dr. Frankenstein wanted to create life and in the process created an uncontrollable creature whose desires were to be an imitation of those who created him. We also created a creature by neglecting to realize that generation after generation were being inculcated with the premises of liberalism and its various offspring. As a result, we have the brilliant people of business and science creating great innovations but carrying a screwed-up philosophy. Science is more disciplined and unforgiving than economics. Wishing won't make it true. But left-wing utopian economics makes the guilt of success more palatable. Therefore, in the new world dominated by the computer and its offspring, we have Google, and every other Mega tech company owned and run by brilliant useful idiots.

    I have never had any use for Google, or Bing for that matter. Bing returns 5th grade level sites only. Google is just invasive.IMy e-mail is not Google, althought, when I got a new smart phone recently, Verizon required Google e-mail. They set one up, and within a week, I was getting another person's bank information. Why, Google allowed both of us to have the same user name, except for a dot, which they proceed to ignore. I took mined they don't want you to do it once they have you. I set up a new account and had to have Verizon reset their records. I will not be using this Google account either.Any business which is this underhanded (like Microsoft) and incompetent does not deserve to be used. Of course they are liberal, they fit the mold. Their ethics are Hillary's ethic - they do not have any.
