Whistleblower reveals Google’s anti-conservative bias, manipulation of UK news
By Ramon Tomey // Jun 17, 2022

Search engine giant Google is censoring conservative websites, an anonymous whistleblower told the Epoch Times.


The whistleblower said the Big Tech firm harbors an "anti-conservative bias," which reflects in its handling of search results. According to the whistleblower, Google search results are "reconfigured to what the establishment thinks."

"We have to use whatever democracy we have left to stop this," he said.

The whistleblower's disclosure bolstered the findings of an audit conducted by the Daily Mail, which looked at the top 11 most searched terms about British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. It found that news pieces from the Guardian came up 38 times in the search results, while those from the Independent was cited 14 times. Both the Guardian and the Independent lean left.

BBC News, the United Kingdom's national broadcaster, returned 24 results. Nine other results came from other BBC outlets. Incidentally, British conservatives have accused it of harboring sentiment against Johnson.

In contrast, the Mail was only cited twice in the search results. The Daily Express followed with three citations, while the Daily Telegraph was cited four times. The three aforementioned outlets espoused conservative views.

British Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries remarked that the Mail's analysis has confirmed the fears of many: Google had been engaging in "unfair bias and distortion."

"This evidence published by the Mail is fairly conclusive and tells us what many have suspected all along. We are looking at how we can address unfair bias and distortion in the forthcoming digital competition bill," she said.

"I have raised the issue of bias and algorithms distorting democratic content and opinion with Google. [It has] promised to revert to me with evidence that this is not the case – which I have yet to receive."

Big Tech using two main tools for censorship

Former Google employee turned whistleblower Zach Vorhies revealed back in 2019 that Google was indeed utilizing algorithms to censor former President Donald Trump. He downloaded 950 pages of internal documents about the search engine giant's censorship to prove this claim. These documents were then turned over to both the Department of Justice and Project Veritas. (Related: Zach Vorhies: Portrait of a whistleblower.)

According to Vorhies, the Big Tech company uses two tools for its censorship of conservatives.

First, Google uses the Expertise, Authoritative and Trustworthiness (EAT) score – which judges the rank of websites based on the reputation of the website, topic or person. Sites that have a high EAT score receive a better ranking.

"The EAT score is generated about what the media outlets think about you. What does Wikipedia think? What does the [mainstream media] think? It's an echo chamber because they rank which media is allowed to show up on their website," explained Vorhies. "All Google has to do is that they have to base their algorithms on what the consensus of the establishment thinks and they reconfigure to what the establishment thinks."

Second, Google uses the Machine Learning Fairness (MLF) system powered by artificial intelligence (AI). Vorhies elaborated that MLF is used alongside various other blacklists and secret page rank scores to control information, making it a "real censorship engine."

"MLF is now taking over this page rank score because Google started to transition so fast to the left. What [it has] done is that [it has] transitioned to this AI system that can de-boost and re-rank."

Vorhies ultimately warned that if Google's censorship of conservatives is not stopped in its tracks, it will herald a "highly controlled and manipulated" media system akin to those seen in communist countries.

"They are going to censor all the conservatives. What’s happening is that they are closing in on the spaces where they are going to get heterodox opinions and they are closing it down."
