Donald Trump claims Google is ‘hiding’ news about him

Trump Google suppressing conservative voices hiding ‘good’ news and information

And, on Tuesday, he doubled down on claims that Google "rigged" its results to show only bad news stories about him.

"Twelve of the 25 US members of Twitter's Trust and Safety Council-which helps guide its policies-are liberal, and only one is conservative", the report stated.

US President Donald Trump claimed Google search results were leaving out right-wing media sites.

In a pair of tweets posted before 6 a.m., the president said the results included only "the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media". The top story is from Fox News, and there are now two mentions of Trump's complaints about Google searches. When you consider that Trump's deemed every non-Fox News outlet to be "Fake News" - including the sites for CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, the New York Times, and the Washington Post - then, sure, this would fit his narrative.

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 U.S. House of Representatives committee on September 5.

In Google's defence, negative Trump news appears no matter whether one searches Yandex, Bing, or DuckDuckGo. "They are controlling what we can & cannot see", he wrote.

He goes on to call it a "very serious situation" that "will be addressed".

Google has also avoided much of the blowback over data collection that's ensnared Facebook. Other factors such as personal browsing history and how certain keywords appear on the page also affect how pages are ranked.

South Africa accuses Trump of stoking racial divisions after land policy tweet
South African foreign affairs minister Lindiwe Sisulu said Trump's statement "is based on false information". This comes after US President Donald Trump's controversial tweet .

Google and Twitter shares closed down about 1 percent, while Facebook shares ticked down 0.68 percent.

Dorsey told CNN last weekend that political ideology does not influence how Twitter determines what is and is not appropriate behavior.

"We're taking a look at it", he replied. "We look at behavior". In July, he accused Twitter of using a "discriminatory and illegal practice" to silence conservative voices.

Twitter has denied it shadow banned. He has previously accused social media companies, which include Twitter and Facebook, of censorship.

But the articles that were the basis for Trump's claim of rigging ignored the fact that Google's most fundamental interest is returning search results that users find helpful, because that's how it gets them to come back.

That media-bias chart, to put things in perspective, features conspiracy theorists and lunatic fringe outlets like Infowars and Gateway Pundit, who are less likely to be listed in Google News. Among his most consistent refrains is "Fake News", which more often than not refers to news that is entirely true but unflattering to the president. I mean, I hate to say it, ' he said, 'Because that's by far the better alternative'.

The president's tweets echoed his familiar attacks on the news media - and a conservative talking point that California-based tech companies run by CEOs with liberal leanings don't give equal weight to opposing political viewpoints.
