Britton Taylor on Twitter: “.@google this is completely unacceptable. https://t.co/GJpnzY9ad4”

[Point one: Google are capable of editing live search results for political purposes. Point two: is this what we actually want? For Google or Facebook to determine the “truth” of news. Or rather, to reflect commentary on the world that we would like to see, rather than what is actually out there? Because this stuff might be bullshit, but we should be building literacy to deal with it, the educated, individual ability to assess and discriminate news sources ourselves, rather than expecting corporate software to do it for us.]
