Google CEO Lies to Congress — Says No Bias in Search Results But Check Out Google vs. DuckDuckGo Results on Term “Idiot”
On Tuesday Google CEO Sundar Pichai testified before the House Judiciary Committee.
Pichai was called into Congress to explain Google business practices including data collection and targeting of conservative voices.
During the hearing, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) asks Google CEO Sundar Pichai to explain how a picture of Donald Trump comes up when looking up the term “idiot” under images.
Pichai told her, “Google takes the key word and matches it against the web pages and ranks them, based on 200 signals — things like relevance, freshness, popularity, how other people are using it… We try and find the best results of any query.”

Actually that’s not quite true.
When you look up the word “idiot” on Google you get not just one, but all of the top images are President Donald Trump.
President Trump has the most successful foreign policy and best economy of any US president in 100 years.
But Google labels him an idiot.
Now compare Google to DuckDuckGo search engine…
