Alphabet has been exposed as manipulating search results, censoring news, and modifying recommendations on Google and YouTube to push a specific social engineering agenda to brainwash its users. One of the company’s employees initially responded claiming that she was being harassed and that the journalists who exposed this ideological censorship was using selective editing to paint Google in a bad light. She then closed down her social media feeds and Google proceeded to censor the news report on YouTube. This didn’t stop the conversation, though, and a day after the expose broke, the official YouTube Insider account responded claiming that they didn’t manipulate search results, only for Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe to share a leaked e-mail showcasing that they do.
YouTube made the comment about clarifying their position on June 25th, 2019, claiming that they apply their policies fairly without political bias.
We’ve had a lot of questions today…clarifying, we apply our policies fairly and without political bias. All creators are held to the same standard.

On the evening of June 25th, 2019, the head of Project Veritas, James O’Keefe, responded to YouTube with an e-mail revealing that an employee from Google named Liam Hopkins was discussing how to censor certain people like Jordan Peterson, PragerU, and Ben Shapiro, who they claimed were “Alt-Right” and “Nazis”.
A Google email calls @benshapiro @prageru @jordanbpeterson “nazis using the dog whistles” and recommends disabling “suggested” features. This internal document eviscerates your “clarification,” no? What do you say to that? @YouTubeInsider pic.twitter.com/3w1mFO0pRo

The e-mail was part of a larger report that was published over on Project Veritas, where they revealed the contents of the e-mail from Liam Hopkins at Google, who wrote…
“Today it is often 1 or 2 steps to nazis, if we understand that PragerU, Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro et al are nazis using the dog whistles you mention in step 1. I can receive these recommendations regardless of the content of what I’m looking at, and I have recorded thousands of internet users sharing the same experience.
Essentially they’re talking about how to filter content from people they label as “Nazis”, even when they’re Jewish Conservatives like Ben Shapiro, making Hopkins statement an oxymoron.
Even Tim Pool did a video about it, calling out Google on their very obvious biases at this point, where they will label anyone a “Nazi” to justify censoring them, even when they’re actually Jewish.
This comes after Project Veritas exposed Google for manipulating its search results and its news aggregator as part of an AI training program in preparation for swaying the 2020 elections.
The fallout has been somewhat swift and expedient in terms of putting the pressure on Google.
Congressman Louie Gohmert, representing the first distrct of Texas, took Google to task for their bias in a blog post, and proposed to strip them of immunity so that they could be subject to class-action lawsuits.
Senator Ted Cruz also drilled a Google representative during a hearing, where he asked about the information leaked from Project Veritas. You can view snippets from the hearing below.
Whether or not anything will actually come of this remains to be seen, but at least there is fire brimming under the scorched bum of Google. It’ll just require action from government to make something come out of it while the iron is hot.
