There’s safety in numbers. When it comes to exposing political bias among the tech giants, this is very much true. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas recently has featured multiple insiders who give details on how search algorithms are manipulated to filter out conservative content. On Friday evening, a former Google engineer appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox to talk about the bias that cost him his job.
Just so that this sinks in, here it is in writing thanks to Citizen Free Press.
CARLSON: How ideological is the management at Google?
CERNEKEE: It’s highly ideological. You can see bias at every level at the organization. One thing that I noticed that just handling routine issues is plagued with bias. Like they will get a report, an email with a liberal reporter complaining about something and they will jump on it and they will fix the issue very, very quickly. In contrast, one thing that I saw when I worked there was if you do a Google search for “Crippled America,” which is Donald Trump’s book you would get results that would show “Mein Kampf” instead of “Crippled America.” And I reported that I filed a bug, I escalated it, I tried to run it up the chain. They took nine months to fix that bug. They just stalled at every opportunity. They assigned it to people who no longer work there. They made every excuse in the book to avoid taking down something that made Donald Trump look bad. And I saw a number of incidents just like that.
CARLSON: Do you think that Google will attempt to influence the election outcome. Attempt to prevent Trump from being re-elected?
CERNEKEE: I do believe so. I think that’s a major threat. They have openly stated that they think 2016 was a mistake. They thought Trump should have lost in 2016. They really want Trump to lose in 2020. That’s their agenda. They have very biased people running every level of the company. They have quite a bit of control over the political process. That’s something we should really worry about.
So, it isn’t just the Russians, or the Chinese, or whoever the Democrats are blaming for influencing elections this week. It’s tech giants like Google who are seeking to influence elections via means that would get people fired anywhere else.
