If you are searching on Google for news articles about certain topics that may be detrimental to the Democrat party you will notice that articles trying to give the issue in a better light for the Democrat party will come up first in Google searches.
The Silent Tech Giant’s Alleged Reach
While Twitter and Facebook take the heat for perceived bias, Google’s potentially vast influence on public perception has evaded scrutiny. Dr. Robert Epstein’s research endeavors to highlight this alleged manipulation, aiming a spotlight at Google’s curated newsfeeds, search results, and YouTube suggestions.
Dr. Epstein’s Unveiling of Google’s Powers
Dr. Robert Epstein, a Harvard-trained Californian Democrat and research psychologist, has tirelessly tracked Google’s mechanisms for the past ten years. His recent research presentation in New York revealed a controversial claim: Google’s ability to mold opinions and possibly influence election outcomes in alignment with its alleged liberal corporate perspective.
Google’s 2020 Election Influence?
Epstein raises the alarm on Google’s potential involvement in the 2020 elections. He posits that the tech giant might have swung 6 million votes towards Joe Biden through biased search algorithms. By purportedly promoting positive content for Biden and negative content for Trump, along with tailored ‘Get Out The Vote’ messages, Google might have steered the electoral narrative.
The Youth in the Crosshairs
More concerning are Epstein’s preliminary findings regarding Google’s influence on younger generations. His data indicates a staggering 96% of YouTube video suggestions for children and teenagers are from liberal sources, compared to 76% for adults.
Capturing Ephemeral Data
One of the challenges in validating such claims is the transient nature of Google’s search results and suggestions. They are ephemeral, disappearing once clicked. To address this, Epstein developed a method, similar to Nielsen’s approach to TV ratings, to monitor and record Google interactions. With thousands of participants (field agents), this approach might shed light on these ephemeral biases.
America’s Digital Shield: The Dashboard for Transparency
To empower the public, Epstein is crafting a public dashboard named “americasdigitalshield.org.” This platform aims to offer real-time bias tracking across Google, YouTube, Facebook, and Bing using data from Epstein’s extensive panel of field agents. The goal is to spotlight potential vote shifts due to observed biases.
Google’s Stance and History
Google, in its defense, maintains its impartiality. CEO Sundar Pichai has previously asserted Google’s commitment to not promoting any political viewpoints. Yet, Google’s perceived liberal inclination is evidenced by its employees’ political donations and affiliations, with a whopping 94% of them favoring Democrats in 2016.
While leaked communications and associations point towards a liberal inclination within Google, the exact extent of its influence on public opinion remains debated. The 2024 elections could offer more insights, with Dr. Epstein’s watchdog efforts leading the charge.
For proof of this there is also an easy way to see. We will show it to you below. We typed in Biden Impeachment in the Google search bar and selected Google News and NPR, CNN, and AP showed up first with their liberal points of view as seen below in Google News:
We typed in Biden Impeachment in the DuckDuckGo.com search bar and varying points of view are seen from that search so instead of pushing a point of view you are allowed to digest the information and make your own decision.
