Political censorship within Google, governed by algorithm? Actually happening, says a new high ranking insider, and far worse than many could imagine.
Sara A. Carter, an independent journalist who has been retweeted by President Trump in the past year, is claiming the Google insider also turned over about 950 pages of evidence to anti-trust authorities, and a laptop, containing documents which purportedly detail how Google is using algorithms to secretly “hide its political bias within artificial intelligence platforms – in effect targeting particular words, phrases and contexts to promote, alter, reference or manipulate perceptions of Internet content,” according to Carter’s exclusive.
One famous possible example of the political bias through AI-run algorithm was the weird memoryholing of “Clinton body count” content on Google search and YouTube results. (Google owns YouTube.)
At the height of the controversy, Google was alleged to have disallowed the phrase from auto-populating in a search query for the Clinton body count, and YouTube results were, it is alleged, manually rank-edited so that videos in favor of the theory were not easy to access.
This new Google insider also reportedly met with James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, interviewed in silhouette to protect his identity.
