Google’s bias towards the left has once again been confirmed by California research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein, who declared that Google has the power to sway elections and that the recent US election was no exception. Google reportedly manipulated the election by using its algorithms to shift millions of votes towards Joe Biden. Not only that, but the tech giant also used its online platform to promote positive stories of Biden and denigrate then-President Trump. Get Out The Vote messaging on the homepage of Google was used to target Democrat voters.
Dr. Epstein, who has been studying Google’s result manipulation tactics for over a decade, revealed that his most recent project targeted YouTube’s “Up Next” suggestions to adults for the next video to watch. He found that 76% of these suggestions were skewed towards left-leaning sources. To assign the liberal, conservative, or centrist labels to the sources of the videos, he used the average ranking of three nonpartisan organizations which measure media bias.
The results were even more alarming for children and teens because liberal videos were suggested 96% of the time. Dr. Epstein stated, “That’s how aggressive they are with our kids. Because they think they’re gods. And no one has ever taken them to task, ever.” Left-leaning video content reportedly accounts for only 38% of the content on YouTube, but search results and suggestions are overwhelmingly skewed towards the left.
The situation is grim as big tech companies have engaged in censorship and manipulation practices that are affecting our democracy. Journalist Matt Taibi testified before Congress in 2020 about the formal system powerhouses like Google have developed for taking in moderation “requests” from every corner of the government. Taibi declared, “Effectively, news media became an arm of a state-sponsored thought-policing system.”
Column’s up: When it comes to censorship, liberal bias and election interference, the worst Big Tech culprit of all has been getting a free pass — and now Google is coming for our children.

It’s time to wake up and stop letting these tech giants manipulate the masses towards their left-leaning agenda. We must demand transparency and ethical practices from these companies that affect our daily lives. It’s a warning to everyone, especially conservatives, that we cannot afford to be passive about the insidious tactics of big tech companies. They are trying to shape our future without our consent.
