President Trump seemed to float potential regulation for Big Tech platforms —specifically Google — in a Tuesday morning tweet, claiming that they suppress conservative voices and news.
"Google search results for 'Trump News' shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal? 96% of results on 'Trump News' are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous. Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!"
The big picture: Trump's tweet comes just weeks after Big Tech began a push against far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his website InfoWars — and a week before some of the top executives in Big Tech are set to head back to Capitol Hill.
