Google drops 'don't be evil' motto ~ Fox News

Here's why it's time.

Google can view millions of patient health records in most states

Through its partnerships with health care providers, Google can view tens of millions of patient records in at least three-quarters of states. Some of these partnerships allow Google to access identifiable information about patients without their or their doctors' knowledge, raising fears about how this data may be used.

Your Personal Financial Information Will Be at Risk if Google Runs America's Payments System

he Federal Reserve is moving forward with its most ambitious – and troubling – venture in decades: FedNow. The real-time payment system will compete against existing private networks to allow businesses and individuals to conduct immediate, 24/7 bank transfers. So, it’s no surprise that Big Tech companies like Google are looking to flex their influence over FedNow’s implementation.  

Once we searched Google. Now it searches us

Google’s invention revealed new capabilities to infer and deduce the thoughts, feelings, intentions and interests of individuals and groups with an automated extraction architecture operating as a one-way mirror (irrespective of a person’s awareness, knowledge, and consent) enabling privileged secret access to behavioural data.

How Google Interferes With Its Search Algorithms and Changes Your Results

Over time, Google has increasingly re-engineered and interfered with search results to a far greater degree than the company and its executives have acknowledged. Those actions often come in response to pressure from businesses, outside interest groups and governments around the world. Far from being autonomous computer programs oblivious to outside pressure, Google’s algorithms are subject to regular tinkering from executives and engineers who are trying to deliver relevant search results, while also pleasing a wide variety of powerful interests.

Trump is right: More than Facebook & Twitter, Google threatens democracy, online freedom

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Google was accused of manipulating search results to favor Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. Also, research at Harvard University found that Google’s search rankings are not objective, and in 2017, the company was fined billions of dollars by the European Union for manipulating search results. Google also maintains at least nine shadowy blacklists that affect what the public sees when using its search engine.
