Google Rewrote News Algorithm to Target Trump

Google whistleblower Zach Vorhis says Google altered its news algorithm to directly target former President Donald Trump.

Vorhis was a senior software engineer at YouTube and Google. He left after discovering the companies censored conservatives.  

Vorhis’ new book, Google Leaks: A Whistleblower’s Exposé of Big Tech Censorship, took a deep dive into Big Tech’s censorship of right-of-center conservatives:

The madness of Big Tech and their attempt to mold our reality into a version compatible with their globalist view of the world has never been portrayed better than in this chilling account by Google whistleblower, Zach Vorhies. As a senior engineer at Google for many years, Zach was aware of their bias, but watched in horror as the 2016 election of Donald Trump seemed to drive them into dangerous territory. The American ideal of an honest, hard-fought battle of ideas—when the contest is over, shaking hands and working together to solve problems—was replaced by a different, darker ethic alien to this country’s history.

EpochTV interviewed Vorhis about Google’s methods and endgame. Vorhis said his research turned “conspiracy theories into conspiracy facts.”

He also said Google’s algorithm tacked new negative stories about Trump onto old ones in order to keep them at the top of search results longer.

“They allowed the mainstream media to structure their stories so that they could remain in the top of their search index,” he said.

For Vorhis, Google’s control system reminded him of novels from Orwell, Bradbury, and Huxley.

“[I]t was clear that Google was attempting nothing less than a seamless rewriting of the operating code of reality in which many would not be allowed to participate,” the book description read.
