    Google is manipulating search engine results to harm Republicans in
    critical Senate races, according to the Media Research Center.

    The MRC is calling on Google to "stop its war on democracy" and
    "provide algorithmic transparency" after the media watchdog’s Free
    Speech America initiative analyzed the 12 races identified by Real
    Clear Politics as important to watch.

    The findings revealed that campaign websites for 10 Republicans among
    the 12 tight races were found significantly lower on results pages
    compared to their opponent’s sites among organic search results.

    Seven Republican candidate’s websites were completely hidden from the
    first page of Google search results, according to the MRC. While
    Republicans were hidden, eight Democratic candidates had websites that
    were promoted within the first six results on Google.

    "Google’s bias is undeniable when shown in comparison to other search engines. Bing and DuckDuckGo both show, with on exception, all 12
    Democrat and Republican senate candidate’s websites within the top five organic search results," the Media Research Center said.


    The democrats want to charge Trump with election interference. What
    about Twitter, Facebook and Google? They either censor stories, or
    manipulate search results to favor democrats.
