    This comment post will probably be deleted since this is a biased liberal media. But I’ll type it in anyway and just see. I am a black conservative and I am voting for Donald Trump. I happen to know that a whole lot of Hispanics are voting for Donald Trump also. I am in these FB groups and I see their comments how they long for America to be prosperous once again and how they came to America for the American dream of owning a nice home with a white picket fence.
    I also have these dreams.
    But lets get on to the subject at hand…
    Isn’t this the same HIllary Clinton that worked for Nixon and the very same WATERGATE old chilly Hilly was fired at. What else was she involved with Nixon that we don’t know about?
    You can also google ‘Clinton scandals and body bags’. Google Bill Clinton’s pedophile Island which Hillary also covered up. Bill Clinton used cheap woman to build a very wealthy empire. It was rumored that he bought some of these child sex slaves from the arabs also known as Islam for his pleasure and his wealthy friends to use in their private parties. And this Islamic woman Hillary is using as her sidekick must know something to have the cushy job she has. Or some of her Islamic friends are holding information ransom for her to keep this cushy job.
    I also notice a lot of commentators on some of these news comments say their words the same way with mispelling of the same words. Some libtard squats appear to have 3 to 4 ID,s on here. Replying to yourself liking your own comments in other ID form etc.
    Why do you do it? To make it look like this stupid liberal news media has more support than they have? Brainwashers are using their brainwashed dimtards to brainwash others.
    Thats about as bad as Obama paying the same actors who rioted in 2 different cities. And you can even google the Sandy Hook school shooting hoaxes where some of these actors appeared in other school shootings in other cities. Who are the fake actors who pretended to be parents? Where are the bodies buried? Why were certain honest reporters kept away from close-up photos and comments? There are Sandy Hook FB groups you can go to where a lot of questions are presented that make sense. There is no limit the libtard democrat Islamic terrorists sympathizers would not go to steal America’s guns.
    Think people think. Dont let the libtard tell you how to think. Dont be afraid of being called a conspiracy theorist or a tin foil hat wearer. You have liberal democrat voters that are getting doped up on marijuana coke and pills so that they cannot do anything but vote democrat. They are unable to search for the truth. The Liberal Democrats are a criminal organization and are striving to cheat America out of it’s freedoms to thrive and survive the way God wants them to.

Googling ‘idiot’ Bringing up Donald Trump Pictures Drags Google in Trouble

The House committee had also questioned YouTube, Twitter and Facebook executives at separate hearings on bias in big tech

US Democratic Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, in an effort to understand how Google search algorithms work, asked its CEO Sundar Pichai why so many pictures of President Donald Trump appear when she does a Google search for “idiot”.

“Right now, if you Google the word ‘idiot’ under images, a picture of Donald Trump comes up. I just did that,” the California Democrat told Pichai during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday here.

“How would that happen? How does search work so that would occur?” Lofgren asked Pichai, according to the Washington Post.

The Google CEO — who was at the hearing to address allegations of political bias in his company’s widely used search engine — said the results were based on billions of keywords ranked according to over 200 factors such as relevance, popularity, how others were using the search term, to determine how to best match a query with results.

“So it’s not some little man sitting behind the curtain figuring out what we’re going to show the user?” Lofgren asked. “It’s basically a compilation of what users are generating.”

Republicans have long accused Google of political bias, which the company has strongly denied.

In August, Trump said in a tweet that a Google search for “Trump News” showed only reports from “Fake News Media.” He concluded it was “rigged” against him so “almost all stories and news was bad.”

House Republicans said they wanted to hold the hearing — entitled “Transparency & Accountability: Examining Google and its Data Collection, Use and Filtering Practices” — to make sure the search giant was being impartial.

“Americans put their trust in big tech companies to honour freedom of speech and champion open dialogue,” Republican House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia said in a statement before the hearing.

The House committee had also questioned YouTube, Twitter and Facebook executives at separate hearings on bias in big tech.

In response to Republicans who complained about Google searches, Democratic Representative Ted Lieu said: “If you want positive search results, do positive things. If you don’t want negative search results, don’t do negative things.”

“And to some of my colleagues across the aisle, if you’re getting bad press articles and bad search results, don’t blame Google or Facebook or Twitter, consider blaming yourself.” (IANS)
