There were allegations raised that Google was manipulating the news to help Hillary. They allegedly steered 2.6 million votes to Hillary and had far more of an impact upon the 2016 election than Russians. A whistleblower at Google has come out and warned that things are getting worse. Google whistleblower Zach Vorhies came out and provided documents and warnings. He said:
“Before Trump won, Google had this mission statement to organize the world’s information and making it universally accessible and useful.”
“After Trump won, they said ‘Well, Donald Trump won because of fake news and Russia hacking the election, so what we need to do is … protect our users from fake news; we need to protect our users from the damaging effects of Russian trolls and bots.”
What is interesting is that Elizabeth Warren has been a longtime critic of the economic power of Amazon, Google, and Facebook. She is making their break-up under Anti-Trust Laws a key component of her presidential platform.
