PROOF: Google Makes Sure Users Can’t Find Stories Posted by Conservative Websites
By: Warner Todd Huston
A new look at Google search results proves that Google has purposefully squelched the ability of users to find any conservative pages in relevant searches.
While it is true that Google gives users immediate results when they type in the name of “Breitbart News,” or “Daily Caller,” or other conservative news outlets, what Google does to destroy the traffic of these sites is to artificially prevent users from getting links to conservative sites when they search for stories in the news.
For instance, when a user types in “Biden visits Wisconsin,” not a single link will take them to a story by any of the prominent conservative websites. The only results a user gets are to CNN, MSNBC, ABC, the New York Times, and other far left news outlets.
But it is worse than that. Google also artificially buries the work of the individual writers.
In his article for RealClearPolitics, Maxim Lott noted that when you type in the names of any Breitbart News’ most prominent writers, no Breitbart links appear on the first page.
Joel Pollak is one of the site’s frequent TV guests, is the Breitbart legal counsel, and one of its most high-profile writers. But if you type his name into Google, Lott notes that not a single Breitbart link comes up until the seventh page of the results.
Googling the name “Breitbart” still pulls up the website, but it is nearly eliminated from any searches that don’t explicitly name it. For example, Googling the names of Breitbart’s reporters sometimes forces users to click through page after page of less-relevant results before hitting a Breitbart link. In the case of Joel Pollak, the first Breitbart link appears on the bottom of page 7 of Google search results. In comparison, a search on the small Google competitor DuckDuckGo gives multiple links to Pollak’s Breitbart work on the first page.
Breitbart saw that stark reduction in search, even as little else in the news outlet’s reporting model changed. Other conservative news sites, such as the Daily Caller, also were de-ranked at similar times.
Google purposefully, and artificially skews its results to exclude conservative sources of information.
This is how Google makes sure that conservatives are shut out.
Meanwhile, search engines such as the surging Yippy.com give pure results.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
