(NationalSentinel)Â A new analysis notes that search and tech behemoth Google is not only working to suppress conservative voices and opinions, but also anyone who disputes the Left-wing â€œclimate changeâ€ hoax, which is really nothing more than an attack on capitalism.
Thatâ€™s a problem, writes David Wojick forÂ Capitol Hill Outsider, because Googleâ€™s market dominance is such that it essentially qualifies as a â€œmonopolyâ€ on the kind of information the public is allowed to see.
And monopolies, according to U.S. law, are illegal. Hereâ€™s some background.
On July 2, 1890, after Congress passed the Sherman AntiTrust Act, President Benjamin Harrison signed it into law, thereby creating the first federal legislation outlawing monopolistic business practices.
Named after Sen. John Sherman of Ohio, a onetime chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and Secretary of the Treasury under President Rutherford B. Hayes, the law was designed to enhance competition among American businesses and corporations and prohibit single firms from completely dominating an industry or economic sector.
â€œThe Sherman Act authorized the Federal Government to institute proceedings against trusts in order to dissolve them,â€ according toÂ this government website. But because the law loosely defined key terms like â€œtrust,â€ â€œconspiracy,â€ and â€œmonopoly,â€ it was eventually â€œdismantledâ€ by the U.S. Supreme Court.
But that wasnâ€™t the end of the law. Presidents and administrations have used it frequently since to bust up real-life monopolies including Standard Oil, the American Tobacco Co., and â€” as recently as the 1990s â€” the Microsoft Corp.
Now, argues Wojick, Google â€” whichÂ The Washington TimesÂ notes dominates the online â€˜searchâ€™ function with more than 92 percent of traffic â€” constitutes a monopoly on information that must be broken up.
He notes that several months ago Google released a white paper titled, â€œHow Google FightsÂ Disinformation.â€ While that sounds like a noble cause, because the tech giant â€œis a decidedly Left-wing outfit,â€ it classifies as â€œdisinformationâ€ conservative views and â€œthings like skepticism ofÂ climate alarmism.â€
He also says that Googleâ€™s search results when it comes to topics or news stories favor â€œauthoritative sourcesâ€ which the algorithm has been designed to identify as â€œmainstreamâ€ media, â€œwhich are almost entirely liberal.â€
And since these are the biggest news sites, Googleâ€™s algorithm essentially filters out any site that is smaller and not as well-read, regardless of the validity of its content. That means conservative sites who argue against the climate change narrative are screened out intentionally.
AsÂ The National SentinelÂ reported in February 2017, a former U.N. official actually admitted in a private setting that the objective of pushing the â€˜climate changeâ€™ narrative was to destroy individual liberties and capitalism. But anyone challenging the Leftâ€™s version of climate change â€” that itâ€™s real and itâ€™s going to destroy the planet unless we all give up our modern lives â€” is suppressed. Wojick notes.
While conducting research in 2018, Wojick documented extreme bias when he searched for â€œdangerous manmade global warmingâ€ information.Â
â€œMy individual searches on prominent skeptics of alarmist claims revealed that Googleâ€™s â€˜authoritative sourceâ€™ was an obscure website called DeSmogBlog, whose claim to fame is posting nasty negative dossiers on skeptics, including me and several colleagues,â€ he wrote.Â
While conducting searches, Wojick found three things:
â€” Google linked to DeSmogBlogâ€™s dossier on the skeptic though the information often was years old or â€œwildly inaccurate.â€
â€” About half of the results consisted of links to negative attacks, â€œwhich should not be surprising, since the liberal press often attacks us as skeptics.â€
â€” Climate skeptics are very often described as being â€œfunded by Big Oil,â€ whereas funding of climate alarmists by â€œself-interested government agencies,â€ renewable energy companies and far-Left climate figures like Tom Steyer were â€œgenerally ignored.â€
