Google is blocking conservative new sites in searches
At least they are for me. If I run a search for illegal border crossings down, I'm getting only left wing news that are attacks on Trump.

Economy.... attacks on Trump. Anybody else?

Why use Google?

There are equal or better search engines.

I wanted to listen to some Anita Bryant on Youtube and all the top videos are videos bitching about her views on gays.

Why do you think I wanna listen to some Anita Bryant, Youtube?

re: Google is blocking conservative new sites in searches
Why don’t you just search illegal border crossings. When you put “down” you’re just searching for an outlet that will give you numbers you want. It’s like when you search for “why is climate change a hoax”. Find some numbers and compare, everyone lies.

Ran a search "More people entering working force".... Not one single article from 2017. Literally all from 2009-2016.

So what you're really pissed about is that Google isn't including opinion articles from Breitbart based on cherry-picked data. Got it.

You should boycott Google. They'll definitely cave.

What the frick are you talking about? Do you even know how to search? If you click the "news" tab, you get news. You know what "news" is, right? It's new stuff. If you just search, you get organic search results that take a very long time to bubble to the top.

Sometimes Google puts news articles on the regular search page, but that only happens for common searches or "hot" topics. It is also clearly labeled "Top Stories".

I'm clearly talking about a simple fact. Sorry you don't like people pointing out that the searches are not the same......

Don't use duck duck go unless you want to make hilariously unsupportable claims in hilariously bad threads.

You haven't provided any facts. I did, though, and you chose to ignore it.

Nope. Top 10 results for those four words include Fox News, Washington Times, Washington Examiner, and something called PatriotPost.us, as well as a Politifact article rating Trump's claim True.

I don’t think he actually wanted you to do the search, just agree with him and start the daily anger off with some stretching

Not surprised. They own Youtube and do the same thing there, which I really hate because Youtube is my favorite website

Has anyone bothered to notice that DuckDuckGo also only returns old news for OP's contrived search? That is, of course, unless you click on "News" like you should when you want new news.

Edit: this is referring to the "more people entering workforce" search
