Devin Nunes just put Google on notice for censoring conservatives
Earlier this year, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was grilled on Capitol Hill for the social media giant’s bias against conservatives.
Now Google could be next to face the music.
And Devin Nunes sent a warning that Google won’t like.
Google is the top website in the world according to Alexa and its parent company owns the second largest website, YouTube.
So even just a small injection of liberal bias can result in propaganda served to millions of Americans.
Recently, when a user searched the term “California Republican Party” in Google, the word “Nazism” showed up under the results for related ideologies.
This picture went viral and caused an uproar among conservatives.
Google apologized and took it down, but then a separate search for a GOP candidate for Governor in North Carolina yielded the word “BIGOT.”
This is not a new phenomenon.
And Devin Nunes is putting his foot down.
The Washington Examiner reports:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said on Sunday there may be a need for Google to testify after the company’s search engine showed results linking Republicans to “Nazism.”
Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, the California Republican framed the issue as one in which tech monopolies “should be reined in” and called for a new search engine to compete against Google that doesn’t “censor” conservatives.
“I think there’s a free market solution here if somebody can compete with Google. If they can’t, then ultimately we’re looking at monopolies and then that brings in a whole other set of circumstances is — are these companies; Facebook, Twitter, Google, apple, etc.; are they monopolies and should they be reined in,” Nunes said on “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”
“I would hope we don’t have to go there. I would hope that they just don’t get involved in politics and don’t censor conservatives and Republicans, but if they continue to do it then we have to move obviously to hearings on these issues,” he added.
