Larry Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council, said Tuesday that
the Trump administration is taking a look at whether to regulate Google, after
President Trump tweeted that the tech giants search engine is RIGGED. While
speaking to reporters outside the White House, Kudlow said the government was
just going to do some investigation and some analysis, thats what we do.
When asked if there is any actual evidence that Google has been censoring search
results, Kudlow winked and said that they were looking into it. This comes
after the president accused the tech giant of partisan censorship in a tweet.
They have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is
BAD, Trump wrote.
Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. He
continued: Illegal? 96% of results on Trump News are from National Left-Wing
Media, very dangerous. Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives
and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can &
cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!
Google responded to the presidents accusations, writing in a statement that the
engine was not used to set a political agenda. The company insisted it does
not bias our results toward any political ideology.
