I do believe that search engines do indeed manipulate results, but not to the benefit of Trump by any way or means.
Exactly

Coincidence? Or explanation of his random rants?

lol..Google is left leaning, very left leaning.

Did you use the entire roll of foil to make your hat ?

When did I even mention Google?

Take Google and your opinion of it out of it.

Most of our news sources now operate on some sort of search engine or are influenced by them, displaying to us what is trending.

Actually, The Local dk...

Danish climate body wrongly reported Greenland heat record

... and the "accelerated" ice melt was not "documented"... it was calculated, based entirely on those faulty readings.

From your own link...

Ruth Mottram, a climate scientist at the institute, told The Local that the revised temperature figure did not affect the institute's estimate that the ice cap lost a record 12.5bn tons of ice in just 24 hours last week, which triggered headlines across the world.

"This does not alter our ice melt figures at all," she said

But I don't want this to get into a climate change debate or even a debate about Greenland in specific.

Rather the reason why this talk of buying Greenland popped up when it did.

Google does this all the time. Just compare their results to that of Bing.

Search Engine Optimization is a whole full time lucrative career field. Just to associate a given site with certain terms.

Trump's just doing that in person on a larger scale is my contention.

No I'm not contending he's an evil genius doing it on his own either. But rather the research and efforts of his team. Probably more something cooked up by Stephen Miller. Like how he buried internal studies that showed a net benefit of refugees, suppress what doesn't fit the narrative.

Is he going to buy the part of the Amazon rainforest that is on fire and alaskan salmon too?


You all reach really hard sometimes, i guess TDS will do that.
