Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) identified Google’s suppression of Breitbart News within its search engine as an example of the technology company’s left-wing political agenda to assist the Democrat Party, offering his remarks on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Jerome Hudson.
Google manipulates search results for those “investigating politics,” Johnson said. “They’ll send you to everything positive about Joe Biden and everything negative about Donald Trump.”
“[Google’s] manipulation can be powerful,” Johnson added, “and then, of course, what they’re doing with other search results, which is why Breitbart’s results are down so low. It’s obvious that they have political bias.”
Johnson wrote of Google’s suppression of Breitbart News in a letter he co-authored with Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) to Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Thursday regarding:
Conservative outlets have continued to face diminished search results n Google. Breitbart News’ editor-in-chief Alex Marlow said during an interview last week that Google was limiting exposure of Breitbart news in Google searches, so much s that Breitbart’s visibility index is down 99.7% since 2016 and overall their Google traffic is down nearly two-thirds.
Your company wields a considerable amount of power. We need assurances that you will not allow any sort of electioneering or use of politically-biased algorithms on your platform.
