“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media,” the president said. He described that as a “very serious” situation.“ Trump also stated that 96% of Google News results for “Trump” were from leftwing outlets. Google never reveals how its algorithm works, partly to stop news organisations from gaming the system in order to boost their ranking but it strongly denied a such manipulation. In a statement, Google insisted that it is not distorting results: “When users type queries into the Google search bar, our goal is to make sure they receive the most relevant answers in a matter of seconds. Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology.”

Trump-and-Google

Larry Kudlow, Trump’s economic advisor, says the White House is “looking into” whether Google suppresses positive articles about the president. Some reports have suggested the president was referring to an unscientific report by conservative news website PJ Media. The president already recently accused Twitter too of “shadow banning” , allegedly limiting search results, for prominent Republicans, and called the practice “discriminatory and illegal.”
