Internet Regulation Incoming: Trump Warns Tech Giants, Accuses Google, Facebook, Twitter of Bias

On Tuesday, President Trump  warned the FACEBOOKGOOGLETWITTER behemoth accusing them of bias and censorship:

As per a CNBC report, Trump accused world’s biggest tech company/search engine (that would be Google folks) of prioritizing negative coverage of his presidency, together with ranking left leaning publications higher in their esoteric algorithms, warning that these issues will be addressed soon. We all know what that means. The Donald told reporters after a meeting with FIFA’s president:

They better be careful because they can’t do that to people.

Cue Wu-Tang Careful theme:

But wait, there’s more:

Here’s Trump in his own words. Mind you, I’ve already covered the subject a couple days ago. Maybe the Donald reads this, who knows?

Type Trump in Google,and 90%+ of the content returned is leftist news sources. This is a fact and verified by even left wing fact checkers. Google/Facebook/Twitter are trying to have it both ways. They claim they are just a platform, so they won’t be responsible for the links and content the users post (they’re immune to libel and all that), but then they turn around and censor content (act like a publisher) whenever it suits them.

Google immediately denied the President’s allegations about their perceived bias:

Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology. Every year, we issue hundreds of improvements to our algorithms to ensure they surface high-quality content in response to users’ queries. We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment”

Okay Google, have it your way; maybe you have a good explanation for visiting the White House during Obama’s tenure 230 times. How many of those little visits did you make under Trump’s presidency? Also, maybe you can explain this:

Google, Twitter and Facebook have shaped the very world we live in, and it’s a shitty world. Until people stop paying homage to these enterprises as if they are the most important thing in their lives, nothing will change.
