Breaking: Google manager said company must stop ‘Fake News’ because ‘that’s how Trump won’

Breitbart News published a breaking news story today uncovering blatant bias, political targeting and censorship of all conservative news outlets online, including radio, podcast, blogs, and any other electronic medium that expresses support for President Trump. Breitbart reports:

A manager at Google allegedly cautioned a lower-level employee for questioning the company’s stance on “fake news,” telling him that the company had to stop fake news and “hate speech,” because “that’s how Trump won,” according to a post aired publicly by another Google employee on social media.

Mike Wacker, a software engineer at Google, published on social media a redacted email he claims he received from a fellow employee in 2017. His colleague at Google allegedly wrote:

Also, I posted a comment on a meme regarding fake news on Search and someone reported it to [Human Resources]. I didn’t say I was in favor or against, just cautioned that we need to be car[e]ful. My manager brought it up in our 1:1 last week. Made me feel very uncomfortable for having an opposing view. He said we need to stop hate [speech] and fake news because that’s how Trump won the election. [emphasis ours]

I obviously didn’t say anything and just wanted it to end. I [redacted] would like to see all managers be required to take political bias training.

The employee also alleged the existence of official training courses at Google dedicated to “bashing conservatives and Trump supporters,” Breitbart News reports. The email continued:

Also, have you taken the bias busting course lately? The entire thing is bashing conservatives and Trump supporters. So many false accusations and sob stories. My friend took the course and said he was told he didn’t know how it felt to be a minority because he was a male. This came from the speaker themselves!

Wacker published the email on Twitter, stating that “multiple incidents, multiple concerns, and many conversations have driven my decision to publish this email.”

Google, which receives federal taxpayer dollars, is apparently hosting “bias busting” courses.

Is it any wonder authentic search results are being suppressed and fake ones are being promoted? Is it any wonder conservative organizations are taking hits financially because of Google algorithms calculated to target them?
