    I've found this video on reddit and I think people here may find it interesting :) Our beloved Google is manipulating search suggestions in favor of Hillary Clinton. Whatever someone may think of her or Donald Trump, this is just wrong.



    What do you guys think?

    Plenty of people, but that's not even the point. It's not up to Google to decide what the American people want.

    The guy proved several points, but over and over again, stats that this does not clearly mean they are connected.

    Great guy, wise decision. The searches are rightly touched.

    I am extremely sorry for that. I knew political issues are not to be discussed.

    Sorry.

    I have a hard time believing that some of what goes on behind the walls at Google do not do this sort of thing on a regular basis. People are people and are prone to let their opinion slip into their work at times and when a situation is an emotional one, as this can be for many, they tend to allow that opinion slip a little more than normal.

    And with the power Google has, it is inevitable that it will be used to sway the forces surrounding them in their favour. The old "don't be evil"-mantra seems to have faded away.

    My HIllary Clinton video on YT is negative as hell and it keeps getting more traffic every day.. (at 1500 now) making me the most €/1000 views out of any of my video's at a stunning €4.32. Just sayin'. Is the YT section against Hillary then? :D

    It is no big secret that Google supports Hillarity, The Hilarious, Clinton.
