An accidental glitch in Google algorithms reveals secret blacklist of conservative news
On Tuesday, the secret scheme of manipulating information on the Internet by the monopolist Google became a public fact. For several hours, hundreds of right-wing internet portals did not show up in Google search results.
Then, the former engineer of the tech giant, Mike Wacker, who last year tried to unveil an anti-conservative agenda inside Google and was fired for it, spoke out in an interview with Project Veritas, where an incomplete blacklist of online outlets was later published, which in one way or another criticize the Democrats.

Many popular sites such as Breitbart, The National Pulse, The Drudge Report, Human Events, The Daily Caller and The Gateway Pundit were hit by the censorship. To date, Google representatives report that they are investigating the error.
“We are aware of an issue with the site: command that may fail to show some or any indexed pages from a website,” Google stated on Twitter. “We are investigating this and any potentially related issues.”
And although Sundar Pichai two years ago vowed that all processes are automated and that people cannot manually influence the hiding of certain search results, a recent incident shows the opposite.
“It's likely that a person or algorithm at Google added 'breitbart.com' and other URLs to one or more of the company's blacklists,” Dr. Robert Epstein told Mediate.
