US president, Donald Trump took to Twitter in a series of tweets to complain that Google’s news service is “rigged” against him and has pledged to address this “very serious” situation.

The president said the existing system was biased in favour of stories from leftwing news outlets and suggested tech companies were trying to hide positive stories about his administration.


According to reports from The Independent, the search results that appear on any Google page are decided by an algorithm that brings in a whole host of factors, many of which remain known only to Google itself. Results are also influenced by previous browsing and search history, and that may be happening to the president.
The company has looked to alter some of the ways it decides what to show in the wake of complaints about false news, and suggestions that the search results were showing partisan or misleading news sources. Google is yet to comment on the president’s allegations.
