Democrat Nadler Who Claims Google Bias is Based On Right-Wing ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Conspiracy” — Is Top Recipient of Google Funding (Video)
Google is the top donor to Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler — who claimed that Google’s political bias is a “fantasy dreamed up by some conservatives,” during Tuesday’s hearing with the company’s CEO.
The New York Democrat accepted $26,458 from Alphabet Inc., Google’s parent company, from 2017-2018.

Nadler called Republicans on the committee liars before claiming that bias in Silicon Valley is a “conspiracy theory.”
“Before we delve into these questions, I must first dispense with a completely illegitimate issue, which is the fantasy dreamed up by some conservatives that Google and other online platforms have an anti-conservative bias,” said Nadler, ranking member of the committee. “As I have said repeatedly, no credible evidence supports this right-wing conspiracy theory. I have little doubt that my Republican colleagues will spent time presenting a laundry list of anecdotes and out-of-context statements made by Google employees as supposed evidence of anti-conservative bias. None of that will make it true.”
Obviously, the anti-conservative bias is true — and was further confirmed by the latest leaked emails published on Monday by Allum Bokhari of Breitbart News.

“Emails leaked exclusively to Breitbart News reveal that a group of Google employees, with encouragement from the tech giant’s director of monetization, began plotting the downfall of this website shortly after the 2016 election,” Bokhari reports.
The group targeted Breitbart to search for violations of their hate-speech policies so that they could demonetize the website.
“Even if Google were to deliberately discriminate against conservative viewpoints, just as Fox News and Sinclair Broadcasting, conservative radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, discriminate against liberal points of view, that would be its rights as a private company to do so, not to be questioned by government,” Nadler continued.
What Nadler doesn’t understand — or hoped that everyone else wouldn’t — is that those are publications. They don’t pretend to be neutral platforms that are not liable for the content posted to their websites or airing on their shows. Apples and oranges.
Nadler was also quick to give a pro-Google speech during a committee hearing earlier this year when Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft testified.
