Conservative leaders publish letter to Google demanding explanation about conservative censorship
08/20/2019 // News Editors // Views

Conservative leaders including Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, Media Research Center President L. Brent Bozell, Editor-in-Chief John-Henry Westen, and many others have released a letter that they sent to Google CEO Sundar Pichai and members of Congress demanding an explanation about conservative censorship by the Big Tech giant.

(Article by Cassandra Fairbanks republished from

The letter is in response to a August 14 document leak published by Project Veritas.

Read the letter in full:

August 20, 2019

Mr. Sundar Pichai

Chief Executive Officer

Google Inc.

1600 Amphitheatre Parkway

Mountain View, CA 94043


Dear Mr. Pichai,

We are writing today to ask that you provide a detailed response to the August 14 document release by Project Veritas which appears to show that Google blocked conservative websites on one of your news platforms.

When questioned before Congress in December of last year about whether your company manipulated its search results, you unequivocally denied it.

In March, a study by Robert Epstein identified pro-liberal bias in Google search results that helped flip three Orange County, CA, congressional districts in the 2018 midterm elections. Nationwide, Epstein found the results may have influenced 4.6 million undecided voters.

In April, the Daily Caller reported that Google’s Trust and Safety team manually manipulated various search features to exclude a number of conservative websites including the American Spectator, Gateway Pundit and Conservative Tribune.

In June, video leaked of a Google manager claiming the company was training its algorithms to prevent the 2016 election outcome from happening again.

Now we have learned that a Google app was blocking conservative websites including The Daily Caller, NewsBusters, Rush Limbaugh, and many more.

And the August 14 document leak also explained how the “Twiddler” system lets Google/YouTube workers rank search results based upon what your companies want emphasized or de-emphasized. Manipulated topics included pro-life advocacy along with several political and conservative organizations, like The Heritage Foundation.

Senator Ted Cruz attempted to get to the bottom of at least some of these instances during a July Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, but the Google representative dodged most of the questioning. It seems that in these, and other cases that have come to light in recent years, Google’s strategy seems to be to say as little as possible and hope that everyone moves on from the story.

In addition to providing an explanation for the past incidents that have already been brought to light, we demand to know what policies, programs, algorithms or any other business practices are, or have been in place to censor conservative content, and we call on you to disclose them and eliminate them immediately. If there are none currently in place, then we want your public commitment there will be none in the future. Further, we want to know what steps Google is taking to ensure it will not happen again.

Please provide your prompt response. We will publish your response or call attention to your lack thereof.
