Is Google Making Trump Look Bad in Search Results? He Certainly Thinks So

Is Google Making Trump Look Bad in Search Results? He Certainly Thinks Soby 👩‍💻 Stephanie Boyd

US President Donald Trump has claimed many times before that various media outlets have, previously, misrepresented his Presidency to the world – it’s a phenomenon he has claimed falls under ‘fake news’, and he and his White House team have previously elected to only host a number of sources as part of media screenings. Trump, too, has openly favoured Fox News in the past – choosing to lambast sources such as CNN via Twitter on a number of occasions. This week, however, a very different type of media has fallen under the President’s gaze – internet search results.

Trump has suggested that Google’s results for ‘Trump news’ appear to highlight stories from ‘Fake News Media’ – and that he feels the search engine is effectively trying to offer up his Presidency in a poor light. “In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal?” the President continued.

“96 per cent of results on ‘Trump News’ are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous (…) Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation – will be addressed!” It appears, in these online missives, that Trump feels not only that his voice – and other conservative voices – are being suppressed and misrepresented, but that such an act is an illegal one.

Google have yet to comment on the allegations brought to light by the President, though the firm has reportedly taken strides to closely filter their search results even further in recent years as a result of the fake news phenomenon – and following similar complaints that the search engine may have been showing certain bias to searchers.

However, Trump’s claim may not be fully substantiated – as positive stories about his Presidency can also be found via searching for ‘Trump News’ through the search engine, and not solely from Fox News.
