There’s a new Project Veritas undercover expose video that really doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know, it just confirms it. In it, a senior manager for Google, Ritesh Lakhkar, says he felt “suffocated” there by the extreme leftist culture, and admits that the search giant exercises God-like, politically partisan control over the information users see. He said if Trump says something you can call misinformation, you delete it; if a Democrat leader does that, you leave it; because “you are just plain and simple trying to play God…You’re like playing selective God.” He says they do the same at Google-owned YouTube.
He admits that if you search for “Donald Trump,” you get all negative stories; and if you search for “Joe Biden,” you get all positive stories, because the results are “skewed by the owners and the drivers of the algorithm.” Those Google workers who create the algorithm are so far-left and anti-Trump that when Trump won in 2016, they were crying in the corridors. HR arranged therapy sessions and they were given time off to deal with their grief. Now, he thinks that if Trump wins again, they’ll riot. He said he’d never seen anything like it: “When I worked for Caterpillar or Corning, politics didn’t really matter. You just do your job and, ‘Let’s make tractors, let’s make glass.’”

As I said, it’s proof of what anyone who spends much time on the Internet looking up news already knows, but it’s good to have plenty of proof when you’re holding Senate hearings and writing new regulations and declaring out of control monopolies to be public utilities.
In the meantime, here are a couple of handy tips for you to get around Google’s extreme bias:
DuckDuckGo.com is an excellent search engine that doesn’t skew results or track your web browsing to invade your privacy like some I could name.
If you must search for a news story on Google, add a trusted sources’ name to your search terms. For instance, type in “Trump income taxes Foxnews.” That way, you’ll see the FoxNews.com write-up of that story. Goodness knows, if you don’t include a conservative source in your search, Google will never show it to you.
