New meaning for GIGO

Google:

When users type queries into the Google Search bar, our goal is to make sure they receive the most relevant answers in a matter of seconds. Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology. Every year, we issue hundreds of improvements to our algorithms to ensure they surface high-quality content in response to users’ queries. We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment.

Hmmm. How about a few examples of content blocked directly or indirectly: Prager U and more. PJ Media. Gateway. Etc, etc.

Now, not a difficult question: what “news” source has the number one Trump Google story and calls it a conspiracy theory? Yup, you guessed it.

So when it comes to political viewpoints that the holy ones in Silicon Valley do not like, it’s often Google In, Garbage Out.

A public company should not be able to act this way without consequences.

    I don’t understand how the social platforms can ban commenters speech they don’t like, while bakeries and pizzerias must cater to and sell their wares to people they don’t agree with.

    To go back further, how is discriminating against conservatives on social media different than not letting blacks sit at the lunch counter?

    It looks like a clear case of discrimination and yet I keep reading they can do this because they are private companies and not Government.

    What am I missing?
