Recently a Google whistleblower told Project Veritas that Google News results “are intentionally biased against him,” with more than 90% of political contributions from workers at Google parent Alphabet going to Democrats.
Now, Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Mike Lee, R-Utah, have written to Google CEO Sundar Pichai demanding to know why his company was sending reminders to liberals to vote and not to conservatives, PJ Media reported.
The senators cite Pichai’s claim before Congress in August that Google “won’t do any work, you know, to politically tilt anything one way or another.”
However, the claims don’t align with evidence compiled by psychologist Robert Epstein.
Epstein said his 733 field agents in Arizona, Florida and North Carolina were able “to preserve more than 400,000 ephemeral experiences that tech companies use to shift opinions and votes and that normally are lost forever.”
“One of our most disturbing findings so far is that between Monday, October 26th (the day our system became fully operational) and Thursday, October 29th, only our liberal field agents received vote reminders on Google’s home page. Conservatives did not receive even a single vote reminder,” Epstein said in a report to the senators. “This kind of targeting, if present nationwide, could shift millions of votes, in part because Google’s home page is seen 500 million times a day in the U.S.”
