Summary:
AEI Is Google manipulating search results to promote a social justice agenda, prevent Trump re-election? ============================================== =============================================== The top graphic above show a Google Trends comparison of searches for the phrases “Hillary Clinton emails” and “Donald Trump email” over the last five years. The search interest for “Hillary Clinton emails” (in blue) was obviously significantly greater than for “Donald Trump email” especially in late October 2016, when James Comey informed Congress that “the FBI had started looking into newly discovered emails [related to Hillary Clinton].” And yet when you do a Google search for the phrase “Hillary Clinton emails” you get no autofill suggestions, see empty red box above in second graphic.

Is Google manipulating search results to promote a social justice agenda, prevent Trump re-election? - Publications – AEIThe top graphic above show a Google Trends comparison of searches for the phrases “Hillary Clinton emails” and “Donald Trump email” over the last five years. The search interest for “Hillary Clinton emails” (in blue) was obviously significantly greater than for “Donald Trump email” especially in late October 2016, when James Comey informed Congress that “the FBI had started looking into newly discovered emails [related to Hillary Clinton].”

And yet when you do a Google search for the phrase “Hillary Clinton emails” you get no autofill suggestions, see empty red box above in second graphic. Then when you do a Google search for “Donald Trump email” you get at least 8 autofill suggestions (see graphic above). Next try a search in Yahoo! for “Hillary Clinton emails” and you get 8 autofills all related to Clinton’s email controversy that even has its own Wikipedia page (see third graphic above).

According to an explosive exposé released today by James O’Keefe at Project Veritas that includes an interview with an anonymous Google employee/whistle-blower those search results presented above are just one example of how Google is apparently manipulating its search algorithms to advance a social justice agenda and make search results “fair and equitable.” Well,  “fair and equitable” for Democrats and progressives in a supposed deliberate effort to stop a Trump re-election in 2020.

The main Project Veritas website has apparently crashed or is temporarily down (wonder why?) but you can watch the full video below and access the report at an alternative website here.
