Google CEO Dodges Question On Blacklisting Of Conservative Websites

Google CEO Sundar Pichai brushed off questions Wednesday before the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust related to the tech giant’s apparent blacklisting of conservative groups last week when about a dozen major websites were temporarily de-platformed.

“I will have to look into it,” Pichai said in response to a question from Republican Congressman Gregory Steube over the episode, going on to claim there are “more conservative voices than ever before” on the platform.

“Can I expect a response from you, say in the next two weeks, as to why that occurred?” Steube pushed.

“Congressman, we’ll do our best to follow up and I’ll engage with your office,” Pichai said.

The websites targeted in last week’s blacklisting, according to NewsBusters which itself was temporarily de-platformed last week, included the Washington Free Beacon, The Blaze, Townhall, The Daily Wire, PragerU, LifeNews, Project Veritas, Judicial Watch, The Resurgent, Breitbart, the Media Research Center, and CNSNews among others.

Chuck Ross, a journalist with the Daily Caller News Foundation, observed that his employer’s website was also included in the blackout when searches for stories related to Stefan Halper, an FBI informant who spied on the Trump campaign in Crossfire Hurricane was unmasked by his reporting came up blank.

NewsBusters reported that the websites impacted by the Google blackout were still organically available on Bing, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo.

Steube’s questioning and the recent episodes of censorship come just one month after Google threatened to demonetize The Federalist following a report from NBC’s “Verification Unit” compiled in collusion with a foreign left-wing think tank. While NBC first reported Google de-platformed The Federalist for its coverage of the riots sweeping American cities, the company released a statement that it was merely threatening the conservative website to take action for content in its comment section, not its published commentary.

In a statement to The Federalist last week, Google claimed the recent blacklisting of conservative websites were a simple technical error, and not a deliberate attempt to censor certain content or sites. It is not possible to independently confirm whether Google’s offered explanation is accurate.

    Why does the liberal mind-set think that if they shut down conservatives they will win the debate? If there is no debate then they lose!

    I suspect that we’ll be seeing many more of these “simple technical errors” in the future. Odd that they never occur for any progressive/socialist posting activities.

    Google’s CEO is a liar and does the same thing that Twitter CEO does and they are totally dishonest. They hate freedom of speech, unless it is theirs. They are enemies of the United States of America.

    If a Liberal Democrat’s mouth is open, He/She/It is lying. And yet they remain so morally superior they feel the need to consciously lie incessantly, scream like toddlers at the checkout line, and burn and riot for their version of tantrum.

    My people will contact your office as soon as I get the information about that means there ain’t no way in h$!! I will answer that question. Pichai could have also said I plead the 5th but that would bring the constitution into this and Google and all Democrats don’t want that. It would have also sounded like they were guilty. Democrats want their cake, your cake and everybody’s cake. Then they want to put it in a freezer bag and make sure nobody else gets a piece.

    “Progressive”, i.e. someone who is on the “Left”, generally can not handle things that challenge their ideology. They always want to silence those who hold a different view, even when the real facts show they are wrong. They want conformance and obedience of those not in control to those in control. Those on the “Right” can deal with those who disagree with them and will seek to find common ground. Another way to summarize the difference between the “Left” and the “Right” is with the following:

    Those on the “Left” promote “Supremacy of the State and Supremacy of those in control of the State”.

    Those on the “Right” promote “Supremacy of the People and the State serves the People”.

    When one looks at history and what is going on this pattern is obvious and can be seen.
