Google-owned YouTube has introduced a new “feature” whereby news-related search terms now offer links directly to CNN’s website as the number one result.
A search for “Trump Romney” early Thursday brought up a link to an article on CNN’s website under a box dubbed “Developing news.”
The number one video result was also CNN.
Though they started putting links to Wikipedia at the top of “conspiracy-related” search results last year, this is the first time I’ve seen it for regular news.
As I reported last year, YouTube rigged all their search results to favor corporate news organizations rather than actual YouTubers.
As I wrote in August, 2018: “With YouTube’s new search algorithm, if you search the exact title of Ann Coulter’s recent appearance on C-SPAN you have to scroll through 22 unrelated results from establishment news organizations before you can find it.”
“Google has turned YouTube search from a tool giving you access to millions of independent YouTubers to a censored, walled garden which gives you search results from a tiny cadre of establishment media outlets.”
Evidently that wasn’t good enough, so now they’re just injecting CNN’s propaganda directly at the top of their results.
Two weeks ago, a pro-abortion Slate reporter said YouTube “changed search results” for abortion “after I asked.”
