    Liberal professor estimates that Google sent between 2.6 million and 10.4 million votes to Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    But... but... big money donations. Nothing compares to the influence of these tech companies. Also Google's YouTube is now directing traffic from independent news channels to mainstream news outlets on Google.

    In 2012, Epstein publicly disputed with Google Search over a security warning placed on links to his website.[10] His website, which features mental health screening tests, was blocked for serving malware that could infect visitors to the site. Epstein emailed "Larry Page, Google's chief executive; David Drummond, Google's legal counsel; Epstein's congressman; and journalists from The New York Times, The Washington Post, Wired, and Newsweek."[10] In it, Epstein threatened legal action if the warning concerning his website was not removed, and denied that any problems with his website existed.[10] Several weeks later, Epstein admitted his website had been hacked, but still criticized Google for tarnishing his name and not helping him find the infection.

    ...

    The Los Angeles Times reported in March 2019 that Epstein's criticism of Google had been "warmly embraced" by conservative sources, a phenomenon that Epstein said "is driving me crazy".[24]

    "Ben Shapiro: "Congress people being bought and paid for is pretty rare" "

    goddamn, this asshole is ing 100% bad faith, but it's a great conservative career move
    BS is BS, eg some counter-mendacity:

    Mitch McConnell's big donors are Wall Street firms and only 9% of his funds comes from Kentucky


    Vast majority of McConnell's campaign funds come from big-dollar, out-of-state donors, many in the financial sector

    https://www.salon.com/2019/07/17/mitch-mcconnells-big-donors-are-wall-street-firms-and-only-9-of-his-funds-comes-from-kentucky/

    Essentially ALL of the political class is corrupted the oligarchy's BigMoney,

    which is why the political class ignores the preferences of voters and enables/enriches/protects the oligarchy,

    resulting directly the USA's World Champion Inequality.

    BigBanks just posted QUARTERLY profits of $22B, much of it due to them buying the Trump/oligarchy tax cut scam

    The biggest threat to the country is NOW, the oligarchy and its blocking all climate legislation, while benefiting from Repugs cutting pollution and oil/gas extraction regulations

    That threat is unstoppable, irreversilble

    If Trash and Repugs win in 2020, combined with Trash ing the census for insane gerrymandering, then a new US Cons ution, paid for by the oligarchy, is probable

    Gov't just wants to get their hands on it, get a generous portion of that windfall so they can spend it on they want. They just can't figure out how to get their mitts on it. They'll get there though...it's too juicy to pass on.

    Like England: they'll keep voting on that Brexit materiel till they get it adjusted properly...once accomplished they'll be no more votes on itPERIOD tee, hee.

    These platforms have always been subject to "censorship" by the companies who own them. Do you want child porn on YouTube and murders on Facebook live?

    I don't. They don't.

    Do you?

    Yes or no

    They don't ignore the preferences of voters. They try wall them in with wedge issues so that people vote on those instead of on the issues that actually matter, that the congress and their donors actually care about. It would be more accurate to say they engineer the preferences of the voters, what Chomsky called manufacturing consent.

    sure they do. Dems voted in Obama for "public option", got ACA, because BigPharma/BigInsurance PREFERRED against public option, as they do now against Medicare-for-all.

    a majority of Repug voters support DACA, a path to citizenship, same-sex marriage, and are OK with abortion, etc. they get nothing

    Repugs scream for immigration reform for 15+ years, they get nothing.

    yes, mfr'd consent is real, with BigCorp media helping,

    but see the Princeton oligarchy report that claimed voters got about 1% of their preferences, why the oligarchy(BigDonor) got 99%. Even if it's 5/95, the point is valid.
