Trump Calls out Social Media for Bias

President Trump warned social media giants last week that they will be held accountable if they are censoring conservatives in favor of their own liberal bias.

Speaking before reporters Trump said that the social platforms are “treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful.” He added, “Google has really taken advantage of a lot of people and I think that’s a very serious thing and it’s a very serious charge. They better be careful because they can’t do that to people.”

As should be expected, CNN was quick to denounce Trump’s assertions about Google. Oliver Darcy of CNN wrote: “President Donald Trump on Friday morning claimed in a tweet that social media companies are ‘silencing millions of people,’ exacerbating a longstanding paranoia from conservatives who have for years erroneously accused social media companies of bias and censorship.”

If President Trump is paranoid then so are the vast majority of conservatives. A Media Research Center/McLaughlin & Associates poll shows that 65% of “self-described conservatives” say that social media companies like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube are deliberately censoring conservatives and conservative ideas from their sites.

66% said they do not trust Facebook to treat all of its users equally regardless of their political beliefs. 67% said they trust Facebook less than they did one year ago.

A day before Trump tweeted about Google bias, Fox Business TV ran a report that said Google favored liberal news outlets in its search results about Trump.

Congress has taken notice that conservative voices are being silenced on social media. The House Energy and Commerce Committee announced that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and other tech executives will appear before the panel on Capitol Hill on September 5. Dorsey will answer questions about his company’s “algorithms and content judgment calls.”

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Rep-CA) who has frequently complained about “one-sided” content on social media. McCarthy said, “One-sided conversations are an affront to the public mission that serves as the foundation for these social media platforms – including Twitter. That is why I worked with Chairman Greg Walden and requested Jack Dorsey to testify to Congress and talk with the American people about filtering practices on Twitter.”

Dorsey concedes that Twitter, located in San Francisco, is staffed by those who are primarily “left-leaning,” but he denied the idea that his platform bans conservative voices.

There has been a growing complaint from conservative sites that their posts and tweets mysteriously disappear from Twitter, Facebook, and Google search results. Most recently, Salena Zito of the New York Post reported her column – which contained “no expletives, conspiracy theories, hate speech or sexual language” – had been removed by Twitter and Facebook without explanation.

While Twitter and Facebook have been willing to appear before Congress, Google’s Sundar Pichai faces bipartisan criticism for refusing to testify at an upcoming Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. Intelligence Committee members of both parties are criticizing Pichai’s plans to be a no-show next week. Virginia Senator Mark Warner, the Intelligence panel’s leading Democrat, said Google is making a “great mistake” by refusing to send its top decision maker.

Trump doubled down on Google after Pichai announced he would not appear before Congress. He said that Google’s search engine offers “rigged” news story results so that mostly “bad” stories about him and other conservatives appear.

Trump added this thought on Twitter, “Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out.”

Larry Kudlow, Trump’s economic advisor, told Bloomberg that the White House is “looking into” claims that Google suppresses positive articles about the president. He did not provide details on the steps the White House would take to look into the matter.

Google defended their algorithms in a prepared statement:

Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology. Every year, we issue hundreds of improvements to our algorithms to ensure they surface high-quality content in response to users’ queries. We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment.

Regardless of the Big Tech giants denials, Trump’s stance on social media bias as a whole represents the broader view among conservative circles.

Ask a inferior Dem and (SCHIFF< THE MOVIE STAR) and keep saying “Oh, there is truth the Trump was colluding with Russia. If a polkas taken of the Dems there would be SOME still making up stories about TRUMP. The Dems have lost control and are struggling to keep their heads above water. But now, the Dems are so corrupt that they will say/do anything to take down Trump. The Dems last two presidents, started the takedown of. America. Obama is the very worsens a Muslim, he had the control of so many people he became a shadow govt.Obama believes in Socialism and or communism. He feels he is the TRUE MESSENGER from ALLAH. He weakened our country militarily, Wall St in the dumpster. Job rates falling, stock market heading downhill in a way to control the people and turn them against our country and the money "stock market). He took away our National Day of prayer, he started pushing the doctrine of the Muslims. It has already started in our public schools. No more Merry Christmas, pledge to the flag(taking out UNDER GOD), it’s okay to deface GOD and Country. Knee on the Star Spangled Banner( all of a sudden it’s means the end of our Star Spangled Banner.Pledge of Allegience And HELL-ERY is perfect.

  2. The RHINOS Republicans need to stop being scared and support our President, our country and it’s people. U R NOT DOING IT. The entire justice system needs housecleaning. The good ones are afraid to take on the unAmerican Democrats. They are scared that they might not win the next presidential election.They like hiding behind the American Rep. who are afraid.. They enjoy the easy like of lobbyists, graph, presents given, cruises, money, crime(HELL-ERY) and becoming a supporter of the American citizens.. We can accomplish nothing if we are not standing together. You are the crooks. BE A MAN?WOMAN>. U work for us. U don’t even know what Rep want. you’re too busy hiding.

PTL He is LAW, JUSTICE, and Honorable too.

  8. Mr President

    You had better start using all the weapons in your armory to accomplish your agenda. All the Democrats
    and the Rinos in the Republican parties won’t quit till they take you down. Don’t worry about how it looks,
    just do it.

  9. I agree mr trump is doing a good job of trying to clean out the left radical Democrats that just want to block every thing he does because they don’t like him and they are jealous as hell of his accomplishments.

  10. It’s time to put them all in prison and drain the swamp forever!

  11. As a Canadian watching the political moves throughout the world, I appreciate President Donald Trump. May our God and Savior protect and watch over you and your family and all your true supporters. I will not accept anything negative about President Donald Trump, or cast the first stone.

  12. I cannot believe I am witnessing such hatred and malice towards this President of our country The Democrats are soooo jealous of finally a President that is cleaning up all the corruption that has been going on for years especially this last administration with the lies and cover ups The Clintons and the Obama’s and their fellow criminals have been keeping it from the American people way to long President Trump is so despised by them because he has the guts and know how to disclose all of them for what they really are greedy liars all for their own good not we the people If the Congress and Senate would do their part and support Pres Trump we really could have America like it was meant to be and once was
    Wake up you idiots or you will be living under the Socialst party and Communist ruling then see how you like that !

  13. Obama is doing his best to destroy this country. Hilary is bad enough with her greed but the biggest threat is Obama because he deals in hate. He has been 8 years destroying the infrastructure of America and planting his Sanctuary Cities for his Muslim army around the country. He is the worst criminals this world has ever seen. If there is a Democratic elected as President in 20 you might as well give him the oath of office right along with them because he will be running the government. God save us🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  14. I am with the President as well! I feel that God was a strong force in his election. God is in control always, I put my trust in him!
