Presidential candidate, sued Google
Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard announced Thursday it has sued Google because of alleged “election disorders”, claims the tech giant suspended its campaign, the Google-Ads account only after the first Democratic presidential primary debate.
Gabbard, a military veteran and Congressman from Hawaii, is an outsider candidate, which is often in conflict with their fellow progressives.
Conservatives have long charged that Google discriminated against the conservatives, and the justice Department on Tuesday announced a far-reaching antitrust assessment in large technology companies.
“Google’s discriminatory actions against my campaign are reflective of how dangerous your complete domination over the search on the internet, and how the increasing dominance of the big tech companies, which threatens our public discourse, said, our core American values,” Gabbard, in a statement. “This is a threat to freedom of expression, fair elections and our democracy, and I intend to fight back in the name of all Americans.”
In particular, Gabbard claims that multiple messages are displayed, she was the most searched candidate on Google after the first Democratic primary debate on June 26. “Then, without any explanation Google has suspended, Tulsi, the Google Ads account,” her office said in a statement that the move “arbitrary and capricious means.”

“We have automated systems, the changed flag unusual activity on all advertiser accounts-including the large expenditure, in order to prevent fraud and to protect our customers,” a Google spokesman said. “In this case, our system triggered a suspension, and the account was restored shortly thereafter. We are proud to offer ad products that help campaigns connect directly with the voters, and we do this without tilt to one party or political ideology.”
Earlier this month, Republican lawmakers criticized Google during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the allegations of bias against the censorship of conservative groups, on the tech giant platforms.
“Google’s control over what people hear, read, and say, is unprecedented,” sen Ted Cruz, R-Texas, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said. “Google can and does often, to be in control of our discourse.”
Cruz added: “The American people are subject to overt censorship and covert manipulation” by the Google algorithm.
Google ‘ s vice president of global government affairs and public policy, Karan Bhatia, defended the tech giant’s argument that the company does not have any political prejudices not and does not monitor the content on their platforms. Bhatia noted that the company censor, or take some of the content, but denied that there was any political motivation behind it.
“We are working hard to fix our mistakes,” says Bhatia said. “But these errors affected both parties, and is not a product of bias have.”
He added: “We are to censor speech on our platforms… We have community guidelines against the upload, for example videos, the violent imagery.”
In the year 2018, The Daily caller published an article claiming that Google is almost exclusively the targets of the conservative Websites, the attributes for fact-checking — and in the process, often mistaken statements to the conservative sides. Other fault is a software error for the problem.
