'Google Favored Search Results for Clinton Over Trump' per Breitbart

'"There's two main things that we have found," said Epstein. "We came up with a system, a monitoring system for monitoring search results on Google, Bing and Yahoo for nearly six months before the election in 2016. This story about our findings was broken by the Washington Post in early 2017 and here's what we found. We found that Google's search results favored Hillary Clinton in all ten positions of those search results on the first page for almost all of those six months leading up to the election. Now that's enough to shift two to three million votes, at least, without anyone knowing that they have been manipulated."

"Another thing, we followed up on a media report, it was kind of a hysterical media report by an organization named Sourcefed, they said 'we just figured out that when you're doing searches, you're typing in search terms, you can't get negatives for Hillary Clinton on Google. So eight people on my staff spent that summer of 2016, I published in the fall of that year, seeing if they could get negatives for Hillary Clinton."

"So, for example, we typed in on Bing and Yahoo, 'Hillary Clinton is….' and we get 'Hillary Clinton is the devil', 'Hillary Clinton is sick', Hillary Clinton is dying of cancer', literally eight or ten extremely negative search results because that's what people were, in fact, searching for. So then we go to Google, I have screenshots of all of this, we type in 'Hillary Clinton is…' and we get 'Hillary Clinton is awesome', 'Hillary Clinton is winning', and that's it."

An example of the search manipulation can be seen below.

Plenty more here at Breitbart don't expect any reporting of this on the Hillary Clinton supporting and Donald Trump hating BBC, CNN etc.
