Updated: Google Accused of Manipulating Search Terms in Favor of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign

Rhea Drysdale, CEO of Outspoken Media, has written a rebuttal of SourceFed’s claims in a post on Medium.

Drysdale shows counterexamples involving Donald Trump where popular search terms that make him look bad aren’t always Google’s top suggestion. She also shows that when typing “hillary clinton” into Google, “hillary clinton email” is one of the top suggestions. She argues that SourceFed’s methods were sub-par and produced inconclusive results.

“The story isn’t that Google favors Hillary Clinton,” she writes, “it’s that Google is a complex algorithm that presents information in many ways and at this point that includes artificial intelligence!”
