trust-googleAnyone who regularly listens to any of my podcasts or videos that I create on Facebook knows that I advocate for empowering people to become less dependent on coercive enterprises (states, governments, etc).  Well, I should add that, in addition to becoming less dependent on coercive enterprises, we should also be concerned about becoming less dependent on large-scale service providers that appear to be working hand in hand with those coercive enterprises, such as Google, Facebook, etc.

With the launching of Google’s new “Fact Check” feature, the reason for not being dependent on these pro-government service providers becomes all too apparent  Here from We Are Change, is an excerpt from an article they recently featured on Google’s rolling out of this “Fact Check” feaature.

 

From WeAreChange.org:

Today Google, launches it’s new “Fact Check” feature! This will add a label on your new search results showing whether the article is fact or fiction. In Googles, own words they hope to

“shine a light on it’s efforts to divide fact from fiction.”….

Google’s Head of News, Richard Gingras, added the feature will “help readers find fact checking in large news stories”.

“You’ll see the tagged articles in the expanded story box on news.google.com and in the Google News & Weather iOS and Android apps, starting with the US and the UK,”

…..Google has been accused of shilling for Hillary the entire election season, even censoring search results on Hillary Clinton. How can we trust Google with fact checking information when it’s too busy shielding Hillary Clinton from going to prison? Manipulating auto-complete search results for Hillary, blocking out Hillary scandal search query results and more. Did I mention Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt is funding Hillary Clinton’s campaign? That’s not bias at all to censor negative search results of your candidate?

Schmidt responded to the allegations by claiming Google does not support any candidate for president. “We have not taken a position on the American election and nor do I expect us to,” Schmidt said.

Despite Schmidt, individually himself providing funding to The Groundwork, a data startup that provides “services” to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Which The Groundwork fails to disclose any information on its data services it offers and only displays an ominous logo. But “The Groundwork” has done services for Hillary Clinton and her campaign totaling up to $600,000 according to tax filings.

Here’s more on The Groundwork from Anne of Carversville:

Google executive Eric Schmidt is devoted to electing Democrats. Schmidt was named to a Democratic think tank that analyzed what went wrong after the 2014 elections. But it’s his forward-thinking investment in The Groundwork that is making news today.

A fundamental challenge of political campaigns in attracting elite engineering and technology talent is lack of stable job security, stock options and other professional perks used to attract the best minds in and out of Silicon Valley. Eric Schmidt is taking his vast wealth to fund The Groundwork, “one of a series of quiet investments by Schmidt that recognize how modern political campaigns are run, with data analytics and digital outreach as vital ingredients that allow candidates to find, court, and turn out critical voter blocs.”

“We’re not trying to obfuscate anything, we’re just trying to keep our heads down and do stuff,” says Michael Slaby, who runs the Groundwork. He was the chief technology officer for president Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, a top digital executive for Obama 2012, and the former chief technology strategist for TomorrowVentures, Schmidt’s angel investment fund.
