To conservatives who have been throttled and even censored online, this will make perfect sense: YouTube appears to be working on behalf of the Biden administration.
An analysis of data indicates that the platform has deleted more than 2.5 million “dislikes” from various White House videos featuring Joe Biden, likely in a bid to make him seem far more popular than he really is.
The Epoch Times reports:
YouTube has deleted about 2.5 million ‘dislikes’ from videos on the official White House channel of President Joe Biden, according to data collected and posted online by a researcher who wished to remain anonymous. YouTube recently announced that it’s testing a new page design that hides the dislike count.
The Google-owned video platform allows users to give videos either a thumb up (like) or thumb down (dislike). For at least two years, it’s had a policy to remove likes and dislikes it considers spam.
“We have policies and systems in place to ensure that the engagement on YouTube is authentic, and remove any fraudulent metrics,” a YouTube spokesperson told The Epoch Times.
Naturally, when pressed by the reporter, the spokesperson would not elaborate on how it was determined that all those likes were spam and not actual humans expressing their genuine dislike.
One other anomaly noted by The Epoch Times: Only the dislikes are disappearing, so that’s another tell the dislikes are being removed on purpose because they’re genuine dislikes and not the product of ‘spam.’
Because after all, how could anyone dislike ‘the most popular president in modern history’ who received ‘more than 81 million votes’?
In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, data expert and research psychologist Robert Epstein said that Google changed millions of votes in the Nov. 3 election simply by allowing — or disallowing — users to see certain content.
“Google search results were strongly biased in favor of liberals and Democrats. This was not true on Bing or Yahoo,” Epstein said.
Google, of course, is the largest search engine and news delivery platform on the planet.
“The bias was being shown to pretty much every demographic group we looked at, including conservatives … conservatives got slightly more bias in their search results than liberals did. How do you account for that?” Epstein, who is no right-wing extremist, asked.
To conduct the research, he assembled “a diverse group of 733 registered voters, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents,” from “three very critical battleground states: Arizona, Florida, and North Carolina.” They were equipped with special software that was able to track where they went online including searches in Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
“We also found what seems to be a smoking gun,” Epstein continued. “That is, we found a period of days when the vote reminder on Google’s homepage was being sent only to liberals—not one of our conservative field agents received a vote reminder during those days.”
Google only “backed off” after he and his team went public with their findings in late October, just days before the Nov. 3 election.
“They literally shut off that manipulation that night, and so for four days before the election they were showing vote reminders to everyone, finally,” he told Carlson.
“The bottom line at the moment is that these manipulations, the ones that we’ve so far quantified, could easily have shifted at least 6 million votes in just one direction,” Epstein added.
“That’s the bare minimum at this point, that I’m confident. The maximum we haven’t even begun to estimate that yet because we have so much data to look at.”
