The Trump Administration is “taking a look” at regulating Google following examples of bias at the Silicon Valley giant, according to President Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow.

“We’re taking a look at it,” declared Kudlow to reporters who asked about regulation of Google.

On Tuesday, President Trump called out Google for favoring left-wing media outlets on Google searches.

“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,” the president proclaimed. “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,” President Trump concluded. “This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!”

On Monday, Breitbart Tech confirmed a PJ Media report which claimed Google News results were overwhelmingly left-wing.

Breitbart Tech discovered that CNN was the most cited news source on Google News search results for “Trump,” followed by the New York Times, the Guardian, the Washington Post, the BBC, USA Today, CNBC, and HuffPost.

Conservative outlets, such as Breitbart News, the New York Post, and the Daily Caller were absent from the results.

This week, Google’s YouTube also appeared to bury content from conservative author Ann Coulter in search results.
