(BREAKING WIDE) – Ted Cruz: Big Tech is the Greatest Threat to our Democracy and Free Speech.
Appearing on ‘Morning with Maria‘, Senator Ted Cruz assure Americans that he is leading the fight in Senate to hold tech giants accountable for their brazen censorship, manipulation, and open political bias. Maria Bartiromo asserted that Google is trying to flip the Senate to Democrats majority.
She says “Now we learned from a social media researcher who reports Google may be shifting its power to flip the Senate in the upcoming election, this report notes that if you type in the phrase ‘flip’, Google autocomplete will list the word ‘Senate’ several times senator.”
“Now there’s alot of expectations about this election on the presidential side and i want to get your take on it because it looks like google is working against you and your colleagues in the Republican party and they want to flip the Senate to Democrats majority,” she added.
Ted Cruz responded “look big tech is gotten really bad with censorship, manipulation, open political bias.” “Of all the tech players, Google by far is the worst.”
“Google is naked and brazen, the report you referenced I’m not sure who authored it but it sounds like it maybe Dr Robert Esptein, he is the leading researcher in this field and i said that because Dr Epstein testified in a hearing that I’ve shared in Senate, the Senate constitution sub committee, the judiciary Committee.”
“In 2016 he did an empirical research on Google search results and manipulative outcome and he found that Google have shifted over 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton through manipulative search outcomes.”
“What is interesting about Dr Epstein is he’s a respected academic, he’s the editor of psychology today nationally and he’s not a Republican, he’s a liberal Democrat and he voted for Hillary Clinton,” Cruz said.
“He publicly supported Hillary Clinton but he’s outraged that Silicon Valley billionaires would manipulate democracy to this extent, he also testified that if they keep doing what they’re doing and double down in 2020, they could shift as many as ten million votes to the Democrats,” Cruz continued.
“I think that’s what Google is doing, they’re furious that they allowed Trump to win four years ago and big tech is trying to silence any voice of decent and when it comes to the Senate, I’m leading the fight to hold Google accountable,” he added.
