Donald Trump Accuses Google of Rigging Search Results

Less than 3 days after getting dragged back to Trump Tower for his lackluster handling of John McCain’s passing, ‘Donny Twittafingaz’ is back at it – this time taking aim at Google. Yes Google, the search engine.

We the people are assuming that he hasn’t factored in any of his behaviors for the less than favorable search results… or? Google doesn’t make up the news. They only present what is there.

Somebody seriously needs to take this man’s phone. Where the hell is Melania? And where is Mike Pence?!

KTLA — Donald Trump has renewed his claims of bias against conservatives on the internet, accusing Google of rigging its results to show “bad” stories when users search for “Trump news.”

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

“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,” he added.

“Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives.”

Trump suggested that Google’s actions could be “illegal” and he said that the situation would be addressed. He did not specify what actions he would take, or say what laws may have been violated.

Later in the day, the President reiterated his claims to reporters. Trump, without evidence, accused Google of “taking advantage of a lot of people.”

Trump, grouping Google in with Facebook and Twitter, said the tech companies are “treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful.”

Google said its goal with search was to make sure users receive the most relevant answers. Continue reading →

Google And Facebook Battling Terrorist Groups Online

 
For years, Islamic terror groups like ISIS and their followers have used the Internet and social media to recruit and spread propaganda, but now the tech giants are exploring new ways to fight back. 

Google’s Alphabet parent company GOOG has partnered with Facebook FB and Twitter TWTR to sponsor three experiments that will use videos to counter terrorist propaganda spread on their sites, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The anti-terror ads target Muslim teens and young adults with different kinds of anti-radical messaging to see which works best at diffusing disaffected people before they’re radicalized.

Twitter confirms the projects have been in the works since late 2013.

“We partnered with respected organizations such as People Against Violent Extremism (PAVE) and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue to empower credible non-governmental voices against violent extremism,” Twitter spokesperson Nu Wexler tells Fortune. “We also attended government-convened summits on [common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE)] hosted by the White House, the Australian Attorney-General’s Department, the UK government, the French prime minister, the European Commission, and the United Nations.”
