Google conceals information of RT and Sputnik from its users
The largest IT-company Google plans to lower Russian websites of RT and Sputnik in selection of news, TASS reports.
The head of Google’s parent company Alphabet Eric Schmidt has made this statement at the forum in Halifax dedicated to international security. At this, Schmidt confirms that he does not want to ban the websites and does not support the censorship.
His words evoked vivid discussions in the social networks. Users note that Google tries to manipulate the search algorithms to make RT news hard to find. However, there are no legal grounds or evidence that TV channel publishes false information. Internet users suppose that among journalists there will not be a person brave enough to protect RT channel.
Besides, according to users, words about criticizing censorship do not match actions against Russian mass media.
It is also mentioned that Schmidt, who is an old friend of Clinton, did not provide any examples of false news of RT or Sputnik and his actions look more like flattery to US politicians supporting anti-Russian views.
