Republicans Call to ‘Break Google Up’ over Leftist Bias

Senate Republicans are responding to growing concerns about Google’s leftist bias by calling for the Big Tech giant to be broken up.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) made an unprecedented call to break up Google’s monopoly.

Vance blasted Google as a “progressive technology company.”

The senator warns that the company has a “monopolistic control of information.”

He also quoted one of the Democrats’ favorite talking points by arguing that Google is a true “threat to democracy.”

In a post on X, Vance wrote:

“Long overdue, but it’s time to break Google up.

“This matters far more than any other election integrity issue.

“The monopolistic control of information in our society resides with an explicitly progressive technology company.”

In a follow-up post, Vance continued:

“In October and November, as millions of undecided voters consider their choice for president, they will go to Google and ask ‘Did Donald Trump say X?’ ‘Is Biden too old to be president?’

“The results they see will be explicitly biased towards Democrats.

“A threat to democracy.”

Vance made his statement following journalist Tim Pool’s sharing of a report from AllSides, a media bias watchdog.

The report highlights the growing bias of Google News since the 2022 midterm elections.

“63% of articles came from media outlets AllSides rates as Lean Left or Left,” AllSides wrote.

“Just 6% were from the right.”

AllSides then noted:

“For search terms like ‘abortion’ and ‘election,’ results were also mostly from Lean Left outlets.

“Outlets on the right never accounted for more than 12% of results.”

The report noted that the only time conservative outlets appeared in the results was for a search for the term “.”
