President Donald Trump attacked Google Tuesday in a series of early morning tweets accusing the company of prioritizing “fake news” in its search results.
Trump sent the pair of tweets around 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, claiming Google’s results were “rigged” against him and other conservatives.
“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal?” Trump tweeted.
According to Trump, “96% of results on ‘Trump News’ are from National Left-Wing Media,” which he describes as “very dangerous.”
In a subsequent tweet, the president said: “Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!”
As Google search is a product from Alphabet Company, a publicly traded firm, it is unclear how the Trump administration could direct the largely automated service to behave in a different manner.
