Googled just slashed Breitbart News. It could be over for the alternative news publication, and Americans must demand accountability. Big tech companies must not be allowed to control the flow of information.
Appearing on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show, Alex Marlow, Breitbart’s editor-in-chief, revealed that his site “virtually lost all Google traffic” in May. “Breitbart is down 99.7%. Overall our Google traffic is down nearly two-thirds.”
Now, said Marlow, “If you want to search for Joe Biden or Biden, the chances of you getting a Breitbart article are virtually zero, Tucker.” This is the surest sign yet that Google may be actively filtering search results; it is another form of censorship.
After all, if people searching Google can’t find articles from Breitbart or other alternative news sources, the only thing left are mainstream outlets such as CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and The Washington Post. And they are pro-Biden.
It appears big tech will “do anything in their power to get Joe Biden to the White House,” continued Marlow. This includes preventing voters from seeing any information that strays from the anti-Trump narrative. It is dangerous.
People should be trusted to make up their own minds. Allow the free-flow of news from all sources instead of censoring search results that don’t conform to the prevailing political narrative. If this is truly happening, big tech needs to be held accountable.
