House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has admonished Google and Twitter over anti-conservative censorship and called for a new search engine that doesn’t censor conservatives. Last week Google was called out after a search result showed the word “Nazism” under the California Republican Party’s ideology – while a search result for North Carolina GOP state senator Trudy Wade included a picture with the word “BIGOT” plastered across the bottom. Nunes also criticized Twitter for censoring the Drudge Report. -GEG

Speaking with Fox News on Sunday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has admonished Google and Twitter over anti-conservative censorship, saying they “should be reined in” and calling for a new search engine that doesn’t censor conservatives.

Last week Google was called out after a search result showed the word “Nazism” under the California Republican Party’s ideology – while a search result for North Carolina GOP state senator Trudy Wade included a picture with the word “BIGOT” plastered across the bottom.

 

Google explained the errors as “vandalism” – and that the search results are automatically populated by third-party sites across the internet.

“We have systems in place that catch vandalism before it impacts search results, but occasionally errors get through, and that’s what happened here,” Google said in a statement. “This would have been fixed systematically once we processed the removal from Wikipedia, but when we noticed the vandalism we worked quickly to accelerate this process to remove the erroneous information.”

Meanwhile, Nunes has long criticized Twitter for censoring the Drudge report.
