    Top 5 search - "black panther". Really?

    There is nothing more important in this world than a trash movie. Amazing times we live in.

    Who the fook trusts a single thing Google says?

    Google a company that silences dissenting opinion that they deem hate speech, only problem is who is determining what is actual hate speech?

    You have a link or something I can read about this? I keep seeing people say they are silencing dissenting opinions and creating media bias but I don't see it.

    Understandable. I saw it in top rated movies of 2018. It is one of worst superhero movies of all times. Not sure if Elektra is worse or not.
    But people are simple minded enough to enjoy very cheap thrill.

    But I think their results may have been hacked, not because I do not know most of those top searched people, but because: "WTH would search for Stallone in 2018."
    As for TV Shows, "Altered Carbon" is not bad show, but it is not highly rated, IIRC top rated is "Stranger Things" and since it is not only for adults... kids have more time to search for stuff.

    Actually here is my rating for their movie category:
    Black Panther: 3/10
    Deadpool 2: 7/10
    Venom: 6/10
    Avengers IW: 6/10
    Bohemian Rhapsody: n/a - but heard that it is good
    Star Is Born: n/a - unlikely to watch
    Incredibles 2: 6/10
    The Nun: n/a - may see it some day, but I expect to be bored
    A Quiet Place: 9/10
    Jurrasic World: FK: 6/10
    = = = =

    Hey, but those stats are funny. For Czech Republic, 2nd search for "What..." is "What to eat while having diarrhea."

    This is where education becomes important.

    The First Amendment isn't an "NA" thing. It's a US thing.... Also, the First Amendment only protects Freedom of Speech from infringement by the US Gov't, not private entities.

    It seems to depend largely on which side of the political spectrum you're on, and what your past search history looks like. In my case, I see no censorship at all. Every time I search for something, regardless of the particular topic, I find results that are usually applicable to my search within reason. I even tested the claim made by the US Gov't of Google censoring "conservatives" and found that claim to be completely false in MY searches. Google does attempt to tailor search results to the user though.... I guess I'm less politically narrow minded than those that work for the Gov't that conducted their "test"....

    The only Gov't that is more open than Google, is one that does not yet exist.....

    All right, I didn´t read it fully but I know it protects freedom of speech at some level, I´m not from the US nor I live there, thanks for the info. So let´s say then that they have no respect (it doesn´t mean breaking a law) for the principle of freedom of speech which is deemed fundamental by consitutions in NA and also by the Humans right declaration which is also recognized by NA countries.

    As for censorship, what about this:

    There is no right to "freedom of speech" that applies to private entities in the US. Since Google is deemed to be a "private entity" by the fact that it's not Government run, there is no "freedom of speech" protection for any Google employee. Every company in the US "censors" it's employees in some way. However, I've seen no evidence to suggest that Google censors search results, though some politicians want to see it happen based on their own political leanings.

    google doesn't "censor" results, they bury them, their algorithm isn't transparent either so how they decide what is ranked higher is not precisely known. you can say google weights its results based on what users do to some degree, which alone risks a user feedback loop, which is not good. they click one alexjones clip and next thing you know they are buying a book that says the moon landing is fake, and have started building a bunker.


    I wouldn't be surpised if all the political crazyiness these days is purely the result of search algorithms run amuck.
