Delhi, Jan 3, 2017: CNN released book “Unprecedented” received visual critique from the newly elected US President Donald Trump. Trump tweeted the following, in context to the newly released book:

“CNN just released a book called ‘Unprecedented’ which explore the 2016 race and victory. Hope it does well but used worst cover photo of me.”

There are actually two versions of the book’s cover — an “Inaugural edition” displaying a serious looking Trump and another version that contains a collage of different photos from the election, including a large picture of Trump speaking at a podium. It is ambiguous as to which cover photo the President-elect was referencing as being “the worst”.

Check out NewsGram for latest international news updates.

CNN describes the book as a chronicle of the 2016 presidential elections and the president’s surprising win. It deems the book as an account on the fight for the presidency between Trump -a blustery billionaire and a reality TV star with no military or government experience, no respect for the rule of politics and no fear of offending people, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

NewsGram brings to you top news around the world today.

The 70 year old President is very conscious about his “image” in media as he had previously complained to NBC News President Deborah Turness also, that the network wouldn’t run a “nice” picture of him and instead chose one that made him look like he had a double-chin.

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)
