Google's political censorship

This will only get worse with the elimination of net neutrality planned by PresiDunce. In its attempt to curtail 'fake news' Google is now using that excuse to censor progressive news sites with which it might disagree. Just last month the European Commission fined Google $2.7 billion for rigging searches to its own shopping outlet. Now they are rigging searches away from progressive news sites. Following is an excerpt; see the link for far more.

"In the three months since Google implemented the changes to its search engine, fewer people have accessed left-wing and anti-war news sites. Based on information available on Alexa analytics, other sites that have experienced sharp drops in ranking include WikiLeaks, Alternet, Counterpunch, Global Research, Consortium News and Truthout. Even prominent democratic rights groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union and Amnesty International appear to have been hit."
