Google denies Trumps accusations of voter manipulation

first_img Google Donald Trump Mobile Applications Mobile Apps Politics Online Internet Services The report had relied on 95 people from across 24 states, 21 of whom identified as undecided, performing daily election-related searches using Google, Bing and Yahoo. According to the report, the study showed search results were “biased in Mrs. Clinton’s favor.”Trump’s accusations on Monday came two weeks after he warned Google he’s watching it “very closely” ahead of the 2020 US election. On Aug. 6, Trump tweeted he met with Google CEO Sundar Pichai to ask questions about Google’s role in the 2016 election, claiming without evidence that the search engine giant is trying to “illegally subvert” the upcoming election. “All very illegal,” Trump said in a now-deleted tweet. “We are watching Google very closely!” Share your voice Comments The original report (PDF) was published in June 2017 by Robert Epstein for the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. Epstein reiterated in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution in June 2019 that he believed Google’s search algorithm produced “biased search results” that “likely impacted undecided voters in a way that gave at least 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton.” Answering questions from Senator Ted Cruz in a video posted in July by right-wing news publication Breitbart News, Epstein added 2.6 million is “a rock-bottom minimum.” “The range is between 2.6 and 10.4 million votes depending on how aggressive they were in using the techniques that I’ve been studying, such as the search engine manipulation effect, the search suggestion effect, the answer bot effect, and a number of others,” he said. With 10.4 million being Epstein’s maximum estimated number of votes manipulated, it’s unclear where Trump’s 16 million figure comes from. Epstein also claimed that if Google, Twitter and Facebook support the same candidate in 2020, “there are 15 million votes on the line.” “In 2020, you can bet that all of these companies are going to go all out, and the methods that they’re using are invisible, they’re subliminal, they’re more powerful than most any effects I’ve ever seen in the behavioral sciences,” he said. Clinton tweeted a response to Trump Monday afternoon, saying the study has been debunked and was only based on 21 undecided voters. “For context, that’s about half the number of people associated with your campaign who have been indicted,” she posted on Twitter. 13 The debunked study you’re referring to was based on 21 undecided voters.

Google disagrees. Cheriss May/NurPhoto via Getty Images Google denied accusations made on Monday by President Donald Trump that the search giant “manipulated” millions of voters against him in the 2016 election. Google said Trump seemed to be referring to an old report claiming to prove that it generated at least 2.6 million votes for Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, but said the report has been “debunked since it was made.””We have never re-ranked or altered search results to manipulate political sentiment,” a Google spokesperson said in an emailed statement Monday. “Our goal is to always provide people with access to high-quality, relevant information for their queries, without regard to political viewpoint.” Citing what he claimed was a “report just out,” Trump had tweeted earlier Monday that “Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election.” “Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!” he added. Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought! @JudicialWatch— Donald J.

Rouhani vows to defeat White House antiIranians

first_imgIran`s president Hassan Rouhani attends a news conference at the Chancellery in Vienna, Austria on 4 July 2018. Photo: ReutersIran will overcome newly reimposed US measures against Tehran, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani told a parliamentary session on Tuesday, vowing that his government would defeat any Western plot against the Islamic Republic.The parliament summoned Rouhani for the first time to answer questions on weak economic growth and rising unemployment, but Rouhani said the troubles only began when Washington reimposed sanctions on Tehran.US president Donald Trump withdrew in May from a deal that had lifted sanctions on Tehran in return for curbs on its nuclear programme.Washington imposed a new round of sanctions in August targeting Iran’s trade in gold and other precious metals, its purchases of US dollars and its car industry. A new round of sanctions to be imposed in November targets Iranian oil sales.”I want to assure the Iranian nation that we will not allow the US plot against the Islamic Republic to succeed,” Rouhani said in a live broadcast on state television.”We will not let this bunch of anti-Iranians in the White House be able to plot against us.”He added, “We are not afraid of America or the economic problems. We will overcome the troubles.”Rouhani, a pragmatist who reduced tension with the West by striking a nuclear deal with world powers in 2015, now faces a backlash from hardliners over Washington’s pullout from the pact.Hardline elements in the parliament have pressed Rouhani to reshuffle his economic team to better shield the economy from Trump’s moves and tamp down public discontent.Rouhani said the troubles began with anti-government protests in early January when many Iranians, angered by rising prices took to the streets, chanting slogans against the government and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.”The protests tempted Trump to withdraw from the nuclear deal,” he said, asking lawmakers to support his cabinet and not add to anti-government sentiment.Although the economic problems were critical, Rouhani said, “More important than that is that many people have lost their faith in the future of the Islamic Republic and are in doubt about its power.”Lawmakers asked why the government had not adopted reforms in the financial sector and foreign exchange market, and sought an explanation why, more than two years after the nuclear deal, Iranian banks still had only limited access to global financial services.Rouhani appointed a new central bank governor and accepted the government spokesman’s resignation, suggesting that he accepts the need to reshuffle his economic team.last_img
