Big Tech Remains Unchecked on Election "Misinformation"

Big Tech promises to crack down on so-called "misinformation" and "disinformation" ahead of the midterm elections, but critics argue it's 2020 all over again.

Google whistleblower Robert Epstein thinks this year could be even worse.

"Some of these manipulations can easily shift 20 percent or more of undecided voters without them knowing. Up to 80 percent in some demographic groups. These companies know that," he says.

Co-founder of the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, Epstein has been tracking the algorithms of social media giants for years, and how they manipulate search results and push the left's narrative.

"They do very strongly favor one party, which I happen to favor also, but I don't want private companies that are not accountable to the public, I don't want them deciding the outcome of elections."

The left calls it a conspiracy theory, but Epstein argues the proof is in the data.

"Ninety-three percent of the videos that Google that was suggesting to liberals, to conservatives and moderates, were coming from liberal news sources," he says.

Epstein says Big Tech swayed millions of votes during the 2020 election cycle.
