Following the damning report over the weekend that shows a huge left-wing bias in Google News, President Trump has responded, accusing the tech giant of rigging the search results in favor of "fake news" media outlets.

The bombshell report by PJ Media exposed Google's aggregated news service for suppressing conservative websites, with some completely absent from the results, while promoting anti-Trump media sites, particularly CNN.

During a test, when searching for the term "Trump" or "Trump news," the results were dominated by liberal websites pushing Trump-bashing articles.

Google is the latest Internet giant based in liberal Silicon Valley to be accused of censoring conservative voices, following on from Facebook's lead along with Twitter.

Mediaite reports: Trump first claimed that “Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media.”

“In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,” he continued.

“Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out.”

Trump then asked if the search results were “Illegal,” before elaborating:

“96% 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,” he added.

“They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!”

The president appears to be referencing a report by conservative blog PJ Media, which claimed that “96 Percent of Google Search Results for ‘Trump’ News Are from Liberal Media Outlets.”

The report tested out results from searching “Trump” in the news section of Google, analyzing the results using Sharyl Attkisson‘s “media bias chart.”

The report looked at the first 100 items that appeared, and found that supposedly “left-leaning sites” made up “96 percent of the total results.”

CNN — one of the highest trafficked news websites in the world — appeared the most frequently by a “large margin,” the report said, while conservative websites like National Review or Breitbart did not.
