    They did it through the primary season. People did searches on Bernie and Hillary on different search engines and the results showed that Hillary had more less favorable as top searches on other search engines like bing, ask jeeves, etc. While google had mostly positive results.

    Google using its status to promote and deny ideas based on agenda instead of merit? Sounds like just another Internet Celebrity to me -- abusing their social status to lure people into believing whatever they say without question. ... but unlike Google, the power of Internet Celebrities to abuse their public is with the public who let themselves be sheeple. The power that Google abuses is their own.


    Still, it's a private company that can pretty much do what it wants on the services that it provides. Trying use their power to control other companies, however, is dirty pool. #StopTheGoogleBullying2017?


    Care must be given, though, to distinguish pressuring without legal grounds from having legal grounds to demand something. Not everything that has been claimed is as cut-and-dry as reported. Because of the parties involved, it will take some expert digging through information to get the whole story as we must assume all searches are particularly unreliable in this situation (even though searches tend to be unreliable thanks to Internet Celebrities promoting things that they want people to believe over things that are actually true).

    To be fair, the Forbes article was pulled by Forbes due to there being an NDA that the author breached.

    Strange that this video doesn't appear on the The Know's YouTube channel. Though the previous video about the Star Wars Episode 9 director doesn't show up on the RT app yet, so it may just be weird publishing schedules.

    Google does have a sorta monopoly on this sort of thing but a lot of that has to do with the fact that they are one of the best and have been around for a long time and so people are familiar and comfortable with them.  The majority will always go towards the best/easiest route and the most familiar route which means that even though there are others out there they can't really compete with Google.


    The one thing at least is that unlike some other monopolies there are at least some decent alternatives if you truly don't want to use Google.  But you would still be gimping yourself most of the time to use those other alternatives.

      There are indeed better solutions and easier solutions than Google but you would indeed gimp yourself if you currently do everything using Google... the only real thing that Google is is familiar... and that's it.
