One more reason to get rid of Special Interest and Corporate Lobbyists. Have you seen some of the incompetent and corrupt politicians lately or are they cool if they mentally deranged yet on your team? Look at the congresscritters who have become millionaires serving themselves rather than their Oath. Facebook has already banned a populist channel in France for the upcoming election. Will the Russian collusion birthers condemn and get outraged over a Multinational Corp interfering in an election or is it cool to allow Billion Dollar Corporations to interfere in elections and governments?

I wish I could remember the movie, but it was in the future and Corporations became so monetarily wealthy, that they took over the world in place of governments, due to their wealth being much more than taxes in which the governments of the world ran on.

Now think of the here and now and how these huge Multinationals are wiping out all forms of competition. Think of how back in the day we had anti trust laws that were used against Corp for trying to use their wealth to buy out any competition.....those laws while applied often with our representatives kicking and screaming, were there for a reason. To keep these Corporations from becoming as or more powerful than our government.

We don't elect Corporations to run our country or be the thought police. Yet those who more often than not scream bloody murder about how much taxes a Corporation pays seem just fine and dandy with unelected monsters such as Google and Facebook dictating what forms of thought are permissible???? Maybe it's just me, but I am not down with any business who has the ability to overthrow our form of government hiding behind rights that were designed for the PEOPLE.

Who would have thought the world would be run by Corporations and worse yet, people who were free, allowed it to happen.


Have a Brawndo on me!

Good study that confirms the sickening truth of how Google is in collusion with the top Left-Wing media outlets.

Many "news aggregation" websites, like the "Powered by MSN" new tab page of my Microsoft Edge browser is the same. 90% Anti-Trump.

Excellent op, kinda hits the nail on the head. Interestingly, with all the negative propaganda and blowback, trump is still strong and winning. I guess more people every day are seeing through all the lies.

Cheers - Dave

I think the main-stream media, social media, tech giants are going to end up being victims of their own hubris.

A growing number of people have simply stopped trusting/believing them.

We don't combat their bias with government regulation, though.

We keep talking, keep speaking, keep pointing out their bias.

They may have the social media platforms, but they still don't control us.

Good point! And the news outlets who attack conservatives the hardest, will those damaged the most by upcoming revelations. They're close to panicking now.

Even the tech giants are ruled by the profit motive, like any corporation; They have yuge research depts. studying trends of what the consumers want to hear, want to buy, and want to watch. If the bean counters determine that a type of programming isn't bringing in the revenue they want...it's goodbye.

If google pisses you off, switch to yahoo, bing, AOL, or duckduck.go...you have choices.





Notice how even Fox is incrementally getting more liberal? There's a reason for that...advertising dollars.

It's called capitalism...you got a problem with that?

Google's search results are based on an algorithm that prioritizes site visits.

So if Left leaning sites have higher prioritization, what does that tell you about the population of the world?

Or it could be that Fox is now run by Rupert 's liberal sons...

This may be shocking news, but even liberals are capitalist and want to put money in the stock holders pockets; despite that conservatives see libs as godless commies trying to turn America into a socialist paradise.

It's a simple matter of economics, market shares and the way business is conducted in America and that's not going to change anytime soon. Even trump is still a businessman and knows it's Wall st. that pulls the strings.

Or possibly they realize a majority of Americans are, by definition, moderate on most issues, and not far right.

I'm probaby right of the average voter, and even I get tired of some of the right wing rhetoric on fox.

The pushing of a religious agenda makes me tune out at times. Not that I have anything against religion, but my beliefs on the constitution, the role of government, and what's best for America are not based on my religion.

I'm in no way offended by it, but any time i percieve a "holier than thou" attitude, irrespective of which side of the political spectrum, I tend to not take them seriously.

And studies find that ATS is being dominated by the right.

Look at homepage, tell me that I'm wrong.


It's kind of hard to discern considering anyone without TDS is labelled "Right Wing".

It works both ways though. I often see centrists accused of being "Left Wing" too.

Nobody has identical beliefs, nobody.

Are those Google algorithms reviewable and accessible for public scrutiny to prove that statement? See, IMO, if they business becomes so large that they do have, in effect, a monopoly (you can still have competitors and be categorized as a monopoly) then these type of things need to be the cost of business. Release your search algorithms for independent review to ensure there is no biases in them that could sway an election.

I agree they should be reigned in, but we all know they wont be.

US elections going forward will be a complete farce.

They've been a farce so long as (excessive) money has been involved.

Ironic that you can google the Google algorithms.

Yes, all those are interesting reads. However, there is not any links to the code that embeds the algorithm nor the logical representation of the algorithms. All these sources try to "explain" them and what the release changes impact. Not one actually presents the search algorithms themselves. You know, in a form that computer scientists can review and determine if the algorithm is biased in it's logic.

I see what you mean. Perhaps the codes are deemed intellectual property and not open access.
In my business, I have information no one has access to except my attorney.
Email google and see if they will allow you access.

Well, they are proprietary, not to mention biased, and shady as hell.

I didn't bother with the links provided, as even if there were "code" there, it would not have been the actual code.
