Breitbart must have a mole in Google. Scary sh*t! Long article with graphics so be sure to scroll down past the ads.

An internal company briefing produced by Google and leaked exclusively to Breitbart News argues that due to a variety of factors, including the election of President Trump, the “American tradition” of free speech on the internet is no longer viable.

Despite leaked video footage showing top executives declaring their intention to ensure that the rise of Trump and the populist movement is just a “blip” in history, Google has repeatedly denied that the political bias of its employees filter into its products.

But the 85-page briefing, titled “The Good Censor,” admits that Google and other tech platforms now “control the majority of online conversations” and have undertaken a “shift towards censorship” in response to unwelcome political events around the world.

It's good that the ministry of truth is protecting us peons from wrong think. I'll sleep better knowing that I wasn't exposed to an offensive word.

Yes they were denying censorship. Google also has racist hiring/promotion policies. Don’t use google.

Starts company with ambitious (and deceptive) motto "Don't be Evil".....promptly emulates every evil regime's sordid history of disinformation, propaganda, and oppression/purging of dissidents.

Just wow.

I don't use Google to gather my political thought. They are also a private company and can do as they please. It's not a restriction of anyone's free speech. Also, if you don't like Google, don't use Google. Your choice.

Of course you would parrot that line. Probably denied it existed previously. Big ugly unprecedented subject that will need studied further.There is a lawsuit against their bigotted hiring practices.

I don't follow what you mean in the bolded part. As far the last sentence, if there's enough evidence of it, I'm sure Google will lose the suit as well they should. It doesn't affect me when I'm searching waterfalls I want to visit, song lyrics I'm trying to remember who sang or slow cooker chili recipes.
