Trump Slams Google, Says Bias Against Conservatives 'Will Be Addressed'

Google is not the first tech stalwart to receive criticism from Trump. They also revealed anew his deep-seated frustration over not getting the credit he believes he deserves.

US President Donald Trump has consistently condemned popular media organisations, alleging that they publish "fake news" that is biased, turning to Twitter to convey his words to the public instead. He followed that up with vague threats in Oval Office comments. "This is a very serious situation - will be addressed!"

Trump and Kudlow's comments Tuesday come as technology company leaders, including those from Google, Facebook and Twitter prepare to testify before Congress next week.

Trump's concern is that search results about him appear negative, but that's because the majority of stories about him are negative, Meyers said.

Google - the default search engine of choice for most Americans - is also stifling conservative voices and content, according to a recent media study. The fact that certain publications might appear more frequently than others in the results does not tell us anything why that is the case - and it certainly doesn't prove that results are "rigged". For Trump, fake news represents everything that's critical of his presidency. While some company executives may lean liberal, they have long asserted that their products are without political bias. The Google News system gives weight to how many times a story has been linked to, as well as to how prominently the terms people are searching for show up in the stories, Irvine said.

But it doesn't work that way, he said.

Keep in mind that Google News uses a mix of both generalised algorithms and personalized features to generate results - so to some extent, each person's results will look somewhat different based on their past activity and preferences on Google sites.
