Google employees reacted to news of Donald Trump's win by discussing how best to censor right-wing news sites like Breitbart and The Daily Caller.
They went through with all of this -- just not quite so blatantly.
From The Daily Caller:
Google employees debated whether to bury conservative media outlets in the company’s search function as a response to President Donald Trump’s election in 2016, internal Google communications obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation reveal.
Communications obtained by TheDCNF show that internal Google discussions went beyond expressing remorse over Clinton’s loss to actually discussing ways Google could prevent Trump from winning again.Everyone is aware of the importance of demographics except the GOPe.
Some of Byer’s colleagues expressed concern that manipulating search results could backfire and suggested alternative measures.Google unquestionably downranked Breitbart, especially on Google news, but more than that they blatantly rigged YouTube's search algorithms to suppress right-wing, independent content producers.
It appears they've decided the best method of attack is boosting the hell out of pro-establishment neocons like Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson on YouTube and Ben Shapiro's site The Daily Wire on Google.
All one has to do to see this is the case is look at their "suggested/related" videos on the right of YouTube if they view any right-wing content. As both of them push irrelevant neoconservative talking points and eschew nationalism and populism, they fit perfectly with YouTube's stated goal of "deradicalization" and "fighting extremism."
Alex Jones and other right-wing populists and nationalists have either been banned outright or simply demonetized and suppressed.
A newly released study from Ahrefs found Alex Jones was the 40th most searched term on YouTube in 2018. Neither Ben Shapiro nor Jordan Peterson made the top 100.
These trillion dollar companies are sacrificing their platforms and their credibility to desperately try and put the nationalist/populist genie back in the bottle.
As I reported earlier this week, The New York Times Editorial Board has reduced themselves to outright begging the US government and corporate America to implement authoritarian censorship of social media in the name of stopping "toxic ideas" from spreading.
They know this is only going to make our message more powerful but they don't care because they're desperate to seize back power.
