That's what Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) told his Republican colleagues on the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday during a hearing that featured testimony from Google CEO Sundar Pichai and amid ongoing, yet unfounded, complaints by right-wing lawmakers and commentators that the search giant is biased against them.

"Any time you type in a keyword, as Google we have gone out and crawled and stored copies of billions of [websites'] pages in our index", Pichai said. If I go over there and sit with my Democrat friends, does Google track my movement?

Tom Lee's recent comments call to mind a statement by Tezos Co-founder and CEO, Kathleen Breitman that only small minds would continue to check the price of cryptocurrencies every now and then. He marked the divergence to last year's meteoric rise, a macroeconomic "meltdown" and treasury sales during initial coin offerings (ICOs).

The House committee held the hearing to discuss whether Google's search results are politically slanted. "He could never really explain why so many results of internet searches were in fact slanted against conservatives or Republicans or the President or the Vice President", Smith said during his appearance on Breitbart News Daily on Thursday.

According to Google Trends, "idiot" is now the number one most searched for term in the US.

This came from Texas representative Louie Gohmert (R), who used his five minutes to lament what he sees as Google's deeply ingrained Liberal bias rather than ask any questions.

European regulators already have concluded that Google manipulated its search engine to gain an unfair advantage over other online shopping sites in the lucrative e-commerce market, and fined the company $2.8 billion.

Numerous lawmakers also asserted that Google uses its search engine as a propaganda machine that highlights news and opinions supporting its own view of how the world should be.

"It's nearly getting to the point where they are allowing it or even condoning it". "I would prefer not to regulate", said the congressman, "but I do think the application of our antitrust laws-which promote fair competition-needs to be reviewed". Even if Google were able to adjust its search results so as to favor Conservatives more, Congress can't legally compel it to do so.

Eric Schmidt, the chairman of Google's parent company Alphabet, recently made a stunning prediction in an interview with the New York Times.
