For many of us, using the internet means using Google. As the number one visited website in the world Google receives 5.6 billion searches per day controlling more than 90 percent of global search traffic.
Searching for something is just another way of saying googling it and watching a video means using YouTube – a Google subsidiary.
YouTube is the second most popular search engine in the world with 2.3 billion users and 1 billion hours of videos watched daily.
In other words, our minds, our political beliefs, and our world views are inseparably linked to Google’s search results, but Google is no longer an objective source of information, and the tech giant is actively censoring what we see.
In August of 2019, Senior Google engineer, Zachary Vorhies leaked 950 pages of internal documents providing evidence of Google’s use of blacklist, censorship, and machine learning algorithms to rig the 2020 election.
This particular blacklist shows hundreds of conservative websites which were censored on Android’s news search results. There is an obvious political bias.
