Trump Claims Google Search Results Are 'Rigged' Against Him

  • Donald Trump: Google’s news service is rigged against me

Trump repeated his claim in the Oval Office on Tuesday afternoon and expanded on it.

This is the first time Mr Trump has ever claimed Google's search engine is biased.

The claims appeared to be based on a report from the Trump-friendly news site PJ Media which relied on an analysis chart by conservative news host Sharyl Attkisson that categorized major news outlets such as the New York Times, CBS and CNN as 'left wing'. They also revealed anew his deep-seated frustration he doesn't get the credit he believes he deserves.

The factors Google uses to determine which websites appear first in search results include how often that page is linked to on other sites, the use of keywords, the popularity and respectability of the news site, and personal browsing history of the person conducting the search.

He followed that up with vague threats in Oval Office comments.

Trump tweeted on Tuesday that "This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!"

Trump says companies including Google, Twitter and Facebook "better be careful" because "you can't do that to people". That would be a noteworthy development since Trump often points proudly to his cutting of government regulations as a spur for economic gains.

President Trump accused Google of censoring conservative media by hiding its content from the general public, wondering whether the practice is "illegal" and claiming the matter "will be addressed" as part of the same communication. "In other words, they have it RIGGED". Fake CNN is prominent.


He adds, "Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out". Trump complained in a pre-dawn tweet that a search for "Trump News" on Google "shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media". With most new media outlets in receipt of criticism, Trump has recently turned his attention the world's most used Internet search engine: Google.

He wrote: "96% of results on "Trump News" are from National Left-Wing Media, very unsafe". "Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don't bias our results toward any political ideology".

The Mountain View, California-based tech company says it makes "hundreds of improvements" to its algorithms every year to ensure "high-quality content" is returned in response to users' queries.

"We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment".

"Accusations of search engine "bias" have existed as long as there have been search engines".

Google Headquarters in the US.

Representatives for the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. "They truly have taken advantage of the US, but not for long!" Tech companies have said they do not remove content for political reasons.

Media analyst Ken Doctor said it doesn't make sense for mass-market businesses like Google to lean either way politically.
