Fake CNN is prominent.
Trump's attack against the Alphabet Inc unit follows a string of grievances against technology companies, including social media Twitter Inc and Facebook Inc, which he has accused of silencing conservative voices, and Amazon.com Inc, which he has said is hurting small businesses and benefiting from a favorable deal with the U.S. Postal Services. And we will continue to call them out every step of the way.
Google claimed in an unattributed statement that its searches aren't politically biased. "We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment".
Trump's warning came as he was meeting in the Oval Office with the president of Federation Internationale de Football Association, the global governing body of soccer. Hours after his dawn tweet, his top economic adviser said the White House is "taking a look" at whether Google searches should be subject to regulation.
"This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!" And you just can't do that.
Republicans have criticized social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter over their treatment of conservatives on their platforms. And they have to be careful.

President Trump took his war against social media censorship to the next level Tuesday morning; blasting tech giant Google over recent reports that 96% of its search results were from the "left-wing media". His accusations appeared to mirror those in the August 25 piece. It also says the New York Times is more left-leaning than BuzzFeed and literally features Google as one of its media outlets (also on the left).
In a previous investigation, the FTC decided that Google was likely justified in developing a search function that harmed other companies. Far Right-leaning media picked up the story and ran with it. She did, however, acknowledge that her methods are "not scientific".
When it comes to judging the quality of the top news stories that Google displays, three major issues come into play, according to Google: Freshness, relevancy and authoritativeness.
"Illegal?" he speculated, going on to accuse Google of "controlling what we can & cannot see". This is a very serious situation-will be addressed! (Note: Trump deleted the original tweets because on contained the phrase "Fake New" but reposted almost identical ones with the proper "Fake News" claim around 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday).
