Google doesn't want you to see this story --- literally

Google HQ (newer pic)Silicon Valley is known as a mecca for left-wing progressives but evidence keeps growing that Big Tech really despises conservatives.

A crisis of conscience prompted Zach Vorhies, a Google senior software engineer, to go to James O'Keefe at Project Veritas – first anonymously, but now publicly – with hundreds of documents that prove the anti-conservative bias at the search engine behemoth.

Vorhies told O’Keefe that conservative news sites have become the latest target.

“This is a blacklist,” he said of the targeted sites, “one of many blacklists that are at Google.”

Google’s influence on the Internet is staggering --- it averages a couple hundred million searches per hour --- but the rogue Google engineer advised that blacklisting blocks websites such as The Christian Post and The Daily Caller beneath the Google search bar.

Among other organizations targeted are The Gateway Pundit and LifeNews, and conservative talk hosts Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

Google is also playing god with the Left, too, restricting access to liberal groups such as Media Matters on the basis that it promotes only “mainstream” news organizations via its Google News service.  

Drennen

Kyle Drennen of the Media Research Center – also on the list – says the bias is evident.

“It's very hard to imagine that this was some sort of objective policy that they were following here,” he observes. “It seems very, very selective.”

Drennen calls Google’s tactics a sly form of bias since the websites are not outright banned but delisted from the search engine.

“Yeah, it is sort of like shadow-banning,” he says, “and it's just sort of, you know, making it so the results, it's not going to be as prominent as it would be.”

What is really happening, Drennen adds, is that Google has decided to ignore half its customer base.
