Google is in the spotlight after internal emails show conversations between employees highlighting a desire to manipulate search results on the heels of President Trump's controversial travel ban in order to mute conservative viewpoints and push ways to combat the ban.
Like many Silicon Valley titans, Google has drawn the ire of conservatives who feel right-leaning views are condemned from within. But internal company emails made public by Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Thursday appear to show employees wanted to curate Google's algorithm to boost left-leaning political views on immigration.
The emails were written on Jan. 29, 2017 -- two days after Trump signed the initial travel order that resulted in protests across the country. The emails indicate that Google employees suggested ways to "leverage" the search engine to combat what the tech giant staffers considered anti-immigration rhetoric and news.
