WATCH: DINGBAT DEM Cites Google Search For “Idiot” Shows Multiple Photos Of Trump, To Prove Google Has No Bias Against Conservatives
Today, during a Congressional Judiciary Committee’s hearing with Google CEO Sundar Pichai addressing the biases and manipulation of search results by Google against conservatives, Democrat Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (CA) attempted to disprove the theory that Google has a strong bias against conservatives.
Lofgren started out by attempting to address Google’s “manipulation of search results” by telling the committee members, “I think it’s important to talk about how search works.” She cited an example that was clearly used to embarrass President Trump, “Right now— if you Google the word ‘idiot’ under images, a picture of Donald Trump comes up. I just did that. How would that happen? How does search work, so that would occur?”
We searched for the word “idiot” and the Congresswoman is correct, the entire page is filled with images of our current President. And this, is supposed to be evidence of NO bias by Google?
Of course, Lofgren had no interest in how Google images “would work”. It was pretty clear that her only goal was to point out that Google users associate the word “idiot” with President Trump.
Google’s CEO Sundar Pinchai gave a lengthy explanation, but the crux of his explanation was that he has no idea how that happens and that it’s really based on popularity of the idea that Trump is an “idiot”, blaming the reason for the biased search results, “freshness” and “popularity” of searches.
Lofgren followed up by digging an even deeper hole, as she mocked Republican lawmakers for suggesting the employees at Google are biased, reminding them that President Trump only got 20% of the vote in the district where Google headquarters are located.
Hmmm….and that proves what point exactly?
