Study: Google News Mass Shootings Results 70 Percent Liberal, 4 Percent Conservative
2019-08-09
[PJMedia] A full 70 percent of Google News search results for topics related to the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, over the weekend were biased toward the left, a new study revealed Wednesday.

The nonpartisan group AllSides analyzed the top three search results in Google News for ten topics related to the mass shootings, including the cities of the shootings, the names of the shooters, and even "Trump," whom many liberal outlets blamed for somehow inspiring the El Paso shooting. The research took place on the afternoons of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

"This analysis shows no direct evidence that Google is intentionally suppressing voices from the center or right on the shootings," John Gable, CEO and co-founder of AllSides, said in a statement on the results. "But there was a clear and overwhelming bias in Google’s results covering these shootings, intentional or not."

News articles from outlets with a "Center" bias rating were outpaced by articles from "Left" or "Lean Left" sources by close to 400 percent. More balanced outlets like the BBC, NPR, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal got close to zero exposure among the "Top Stories" on each search topic.
Surprising absolutely no one.

#3  Simply matching the bias of the MSM. There are virtually no non-lib mass media.

None of the "balanced" outlets are actually balanced. The WSJ is center left in their news reporting (somewhat to the right on the editorial page), the other three are consistently left-lib.

#2  A lot of saps take in gurgle news, MSN, Yahoo, the broadcast nets, MSLSD, Commie News Network and FauxNews, but I believe they are only convincing the dumbest of the dumb. Not that there aren't a lot of those...
