I was interviewed by The Guardian for an article they wrote on Google manipulating search results in favor of rightwing content. Do I believe rightwing sites benefited more during the election from Google than left? Yes. Do I think Google manipulated search in anyway to accomplish this goal or to try to accomplish the opposite? No. The Guardian article appears here: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2016/dec/16/google-autocomplete-rightwing-bias-algorithm-political-propaganda
I shared these notes with the reporter prior to publishing to help clarify my thoughts. I think they're worth publishing somewhere, so I hope they help others or open debate.
