Big Tech cencorship is at an out of control level once again, and as I’ve warned on my broadcast over the last two years. Most recently on my Truthslingers Show with my co host Sean aka The Bearded Vet, we discussed how it’s getting worse, and will continue to do so.
We’ve been saying it for almost two years, no one was listening, not anyone in the Trump Administration had time to pay attention to the little unverified folks like us, but they’re paying attention now thanks to an amazing mentor to us all Rush Limbaugh speaking out!
Rush Limbaugh spoke on his radio show on Wednesday about the House oversight hearing that took place yesterday focused on high tech monopolies and highlighted how Google has censored content from the Breitbart News website.
Here’s what Rush had to say about Google censoring Breitbart, and trying to get rid of them from searches.
“Gradually since the 2016 election, Google’s been diminishing our search results — and then all of a sudden, in May of this year, we virtually lost all Google traffic, all search traffic altogether. Let me give you some specific pieces of data: A Google track, something called a visibility index. This is sort of like their Nielsen score,” Marlow said.
“That’s when your content shows up on one of their pages. Breitbart’s is down 99.77%. Overall, our Google traffic is down nearly two-thirds. If you want to search for Joe Biden or Biden, the chance of you getting a Breitbart article are virtually zero, virtually no opportunity for you to get it — unless, of course, you add the word ‘Breitbart,’”
“All right. Now, I know there’s a number of different reactions that you can have to this,” Limbaugh noted. “A, it’s obvious what Google is doing here. They are practicing censorship, and they’re doing everything they can, via their search engine and results, to eliminate conservative websites. They are also using — the fact that they control internet advertising, to deprive conservative websites of any Google-related advertising.”
“And most of the advertising on the internet sadly is run through Google. They own it. It is their primary source of income. And they are defunding conservative websites and blogs,” he stated. “And they’re also eliminating conservative websites and backlogs from any search results. Now, you can argue, ‘It’s unfair, they shouldn’t be.’ But look. They’re Google. They can do what they want to do. The idea that we should expect a bunch of leftists to treat us fairly is kind of naive.”
Rush also said that there are alternatives to Google:
There’s all kinds of search engines out there. There’s DuckDuckGo. There’s Bing, which is Microsoft. Look, I don’t want to appear to be insensitive. Because I understand. I understand the problem. Google is the search engine of search engines. And they ought to be playing fair since they have so much power.
