I am just wondering; would it be illegal if Google provided biased search results?
Let me give you an example.
Some of the top people at Google would like the democrats to win the presidential election in the United States. To help the democrats, they offer some undercover marketing. Every time someone used Google to search for republican or something related to the party, they would get negative information regarding the republicans. And every time someone searched for democrats or something related to the party, they would get very positive information.
Do you get the picture?
Who controls Google?
Can Google have any impact regarding the presidential election, even if they tried? And what if they did try, would anybody suspect it, or would they get caught?
Well, even if they wanted, I guess it would be kind of hard for them to do anyway. They got more than ten thousand employees around the world. A few people could probably not stage something like that. But sometimes you might stop and think, do you remember the google miserable failure search?
And there have been several so called Political Google bombs, but what if they were not bombs, but directed from Google headquarters? This is not a conspiracy theory, I am just asking, what if?
