Google Blacklists Conservative Search Results http://thefederalist.com/2019/01/24/dont-evil-axis-google-blacklisting-conservative-search-results/
It’s long been known that Google is one of the leading offenders when it comes to liberal bias — and now, with news of its practice of making conservative search results blacklisted — the evidence of its left-leaning policies has become even more apparent. Recently, a Breitbart investigation revealed that the company operates a list of “blacklisted” words and terms that, when users input them into the search engine, prompt the agency to manually regenerate the list of returned websites. The strategy has called into question the legality of Google’s practices and caused many to question, is there a conservative search engine that would be more accurate and fair — as it’s becoming clearer by the day that Google is neither.
The recent news was based on a leaked email thread directly from Google staffers, in which they admit that blacklisting is a common and accepted practice at the company. Queries relating to abortion seem to be at the top of the priority list when it comes to conservative search results blacklisted from the site. The documents in question came to light after an inquiry from left-leaning media outlet Slate, in which a reporter questioned YouTube’s search protocol for the topic of abortion, which the writer deemed to be too conservative-leaning. YouTube evidently revamped its search function to reorganize content, and Google also followed suit, appearing to manually manipulate the search results to artificially rank items relating to liberal views on abortion higher than others.
This is in direct contradiction to Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s claims that the company does not “manually intervene on any search result,” a pledge he made to Congress. The new evidence showing otherwise suggests an investigation into Google’s deceptive practices is in order, let alone the consideration of perjury charges against Pichai.

I am not as literate as most on computer issues …too many other irons in my fire for many years now. I have a question for everyone reading:
I use BING for all searches.... am I helping myself by avoiding GOOGLE?
I went to the dictionary looked up stupid saw a picture of Google's headquarters.
I am a Reagan.com email account holder. Exactly which ‘conservative search engine’ do you refer? I use Apple iPhone and iPad but the default search engine appears to remain Google.
I like duckduckgo.com and dogpile.com, though I don't know how fair they are, but they both supposedly don't track searches.
I use duckduckgo.com and try to check all my privacy settings on my computer and installed Norton VPN (not sure how trustworthy they are either because they are based out of Sillicon Vly along with the rest of the big tech scumbags) trying to find a better VPN provider - open for suggestions - if you r running windows 10 get in the habit of checking your settings after each update/info purge Microsoft performs - security my arse !! I don't hesitate to complain to ftc/fcc and recently sent a complant to the DIGITAL ADVERTISING ALLIANCE that's whose stealing our information and getting rich ! THIS IS SOROS/SUCKERBERG/YAHOO/TWITTER/MICROSOFT/APPLE ETC... go into your Microsoft privacy settings and your google - gmail privacy (what a joke) settings if you have a Microsoft acct to downloads apps etc.. that's where I found the Digital Advertising Alliance webpage when I couldn't opt out of all the ads that's when I submitted my complaint because THEY WANT ACCESS TO OUR INFO to monitor and steal our personal data - if I didn't have to have a computer I would throw this made in china pos out the window ! I am also a victim of the 2015 OPM breach under the Obomba Admin. it effected 21.5 MILLION military and govt employees background checks thus far there has been no straight answer how or why it happened other than the Director of the OPM taking the heat for a deliberate national security hack/breach why does China need our information someone tell me because the govt sure as hell wont !!
