Google Election Interference Is More Rampant Than You Thought As Study Cites More than 40 Examples

According to a recent Media Research Center (MRC) analysis, Google’s election interference isn’t half as bad as Americans think.  

It’s far worse. 

The study reveals that for sixteen years, Google has been making friends and influencing voters…a lot. The MRC has uncovered at least 41 times Google has influenced elections since 2008. During that election cycle, Google gave an unfair advantage to then-Senator Barack Obama in his battle against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. 

Google censored support for Hillary Clinton by blocking the accounts of bloggers who criticized Obama during the primaries. Fast forward to the 2012 elections, and Google once again favored Obama, this time over Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Google also refused to address false and defamatory claims against Rick Santorum, another Republican candidate, during that same election cycle. 

Dr. Robert Epstein, an American psychologist, professor, author, and journalist known for his work on the Search Engine Manipulation Effect, had previously told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Google’s search algorithm might have influenced at least 2.6 million votes in favor of Hillary Clinton due to biased search results in the 2016 election. At that time, Google’s algorithm filtered out autofill search suggestions that could harm Hillary Clinton’s image. At the same time, no such action was taken for other candidates like Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders.  

MRC Vice President Dan Schneider and editor Gabriela Pariseau summarized the group’s findings, saying that its researchers found at least 41 times that Google interfered in elections, harming any candidate who “threatened its left-wing candidate of choice.” 

“Google’s results and get-out-the-vote reminders favored Democrats and shifted the 2020 election results by at least 6 million votes,” the report reveals. 

But Google denies the claims, calling them a “recycled list of baseless, inaccurate complaints” that the company alleges have “been debunked by third parties.”  A spokesperson from the tech giant told Fox News Digital, “We have a clear business incentive to keep everyone using our products, so we have no desire to make them biased or inaccurate and have safeguards in place to ensure this.” 

Those safeguards must have slipped in 2020 when Google disabled Tulsi Gabbard’s ad accounts in the face of America’s rising interest in her as a Democratic challenger to Biden. But destroying Gabbard was just the first step for Google’s leftist bias, as the company suppressed news regarding the Biden family ahead of that same election.  

The fix continued through the 2022 midterms when Google concealed a dozen Republican campaign websites., Only two of these twelve websites appeared in the top six search results, and seven failed to appear on the first page of search results. 

That strategy has been repeated to favor Biden in 2024, with Google again burying search results for anyone challenging Biden. 

A study by AllSides in 2022 suggests a significant imbalance in Google News’ linking practices, favoring left-leaning media outlets over right-leaning ones in articles about Trump, Biden, and elections. The data indicates that articles on Trump were 88% left-leaning, while those on Biden were 68% left-leaning, with no links to right-leaning outlets. Overall, from 2018 to 2023, Google News was found to link to left-leaning sources up to 20 times more frequently than right-leaning sources. The disparity was most pronounced in 2022, with left-leaning outlets being linked over 20 times more often. However, by 2023, the ratio had slightly improved, with left-leaning outlets being linked ten times more than right-leaning ones. 

A senior politics editor at Fox News Digital, Peter Hasson, experienced Google’s bias firsthand when Google Gemini discredited his book through false reviews. The book, “The Manipulators: Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Big Tech’s War on Conservatives,” outlined, ironically, the rampant political bias of Google and other big tech platforms. 

Google Gemini criticized his book for not having solid evidence, only anecdotes. When Hasson pressed for the source of these criticisms, he was given summaries of four negative reviews from prominent publications. However, it turned out that these reviews and quotes were wholly fabricated. When the author asked the chatbot for links to the non-existent negative reviews, it “could not provide further assistance,” claiming it had knowledge limitations. 

Be careful what you read; nothing is ever quite as it seems on Google, and sifting through the bias for the truth in 2024 will be more challenging than ever. Google has spoken, and Biden is the platform’s candidate of choice. “Persuasion” is just another word for fraud, and Google is poised for record-breaking “persuasion” in the next election.
