TRUMP ACCUSES GOOGLE OF ‘RIGGING’ SEARCHES AND GOOGLE REPLIES THAT THEY DO NOT ‘MARK POLITICAL AGENDA’

Washington / The US president, Donald Trump, accused Google today of “rigging” its search engine in the network to “suppress conservative voices” and mainly offer negative news about his government.

“The search results for ‘Trump News’ show only the views and information of the Fake News Media – in other words, they have it RIGGED, for me and others, so that almost all the stories and news is bad” Trump said in a message posted on Twitter.

Trump stressed that “Google and others are suppressing voices of conservatives and hiding information and positive news.”

“They are controlling what we can and cannot see, this is a very serious situation, it will be addressed!” he added.

The president has insistently censored the coverage of the mass media, but until now had not charged specifically against Internet giants like Google.

The president’s words come amid the growing alert in the United States on social networks about the spread of fake content.

GOOGLE REPLIES THAT THEY DO NOT ‘MARK POLITICAL AGENDA’

“The searches are not used to mark a political agenda and we do not give preference to any political ideology (…) and never order search results to manipulate political opinions” the computer giant said in a statement.

The company, based in Mountain View, California, noted that “every year” performs “hundreds of improvements” in its algorithms to ensure that “they reveal high quality content in response to user requests.”

Following Trump’s message, his chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, said the government is reviewing whether the technology company’s searches “should be regulated” without providing further details.

But President Trump insisted to journalists from the oval office: “I think Google is taking advantage of a lot of people, I think it’s something very serious, something very serious”.

“We have literally thousands and thousands of complaints that are coming to us, and they can not do it, so I think that Google, Twitter and Facebook are really going into very dangerous field and they have to be careful, it’s not fair for the population” he added.
