Google's CEO Explains Why A Picture Of Trump Comes Up When You Search For 'Idiot'

Google CEO Sundar Pichai is testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Republicans on the committee allege that Google's search results are biased and that Democrats who work at the search giant choose liberal websites over conservative views for prime placement on Google services like search. Democrats on the committee pushed back, and Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren gave Pichai a chance to explain at length why Google search results aren't biased. Lofgren said, "Right now, if you Google the word 'idiot,' under images, a picture of Donald Trump comes up. I just did that." She's right. During the hearing, several Republicans on the committee, including Congressman Lamar Smith, said that there is "political bias baked into" Google's culture.
