'Sinister Monopoly': Tucker on Google Employees Debating Suppression of Right-Leaning Sites
Tucker Carlson said Google is a "sinister monopoly," and that the federal government continues to ignore its overtly partisan business dealings.
Carlson said Google is less of a "platform" as originally considered and has grown into a technological giant that is more like a media-related organization.
Through leaked communications, Carlson said a Google software engineer named Scott Byer discussed labeling right-leaning media organizations as "blogs" and not "legitimate."
Carlson said Byer singled out Breitbart and the Daily Caller -- the latter co-founded by Carlson and former Dick Cheney aide Neil Patel -- in the leaked messages.
"How many times did you see the Election now card with items from opinion blogs (Breitbart, Daily Caller) elevated next to legitimate news organizations? That’s something that can and should be fixed," Byer said, according to the Western Journal.
Byer also spoke of the "responsibility" Google has to "expose the quality and truthfulness of sources."
Carlson discussed the matter with research psychologist Robert Epstein, who said he was very concerned with Google despite sharing some of its ideological leanings.
Epstein called the case "frightening."
"This company with very strong political leanings has the possibility to shift opinions on a massive scale without the public knowing they're doing it," he said.
He and Carlson agreed that both Republicans and Democrats in Congress are not holding Google and other Silicon Valley companies accountable.
They discussed how Republicans are naturally averse to regulation and that Democrats often accept donations and lobbying on the part of the companies.
