The complaining conservative employee in this story is discussing gender bias, but his points are sound in a larger sense: it is true that Google, like the other Leftist new media giants, is indefatigably opposed to viewpoints that dissent from the hard-Left line. And Google has begun manipulating its search results to conceal criticism of Islam and jihad, and material that Muslims don’t want seen.

Internet giant Google has been accused by one of its own employees of ‘alienating conservatives’ with its politically correct left-wing bias.
A senior software engineer at the company claimed in a document that was distributed to colleagues that right-wing employees were forced to keep their views ‘in the closet’ to avoid hostility….
The engineer claims Google’s ‘left bias’ has created ‘a politically correct monoculture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence’.
He adds: ‘This silencing has created an ideological echo chamber where some ideas are too sacred to be honestly discussed.’…
The anti-diversity manifesto claimed that Google should focus on ‘ideological diversity’….
In a section of the document titled ‘Stop Alienating Conservatives,’ he argues for the importance of ‘viewpoint diversity.’
‘In highly progressive environments, conservatives are a minority that feel like they need to stay in the closet to avoid open hostility,’ he claims.
‘We should empower those with different ideologies to be able to express themselves.
‘Alienating conservatives is both non-inclusive and generally bad business because conservatives tend to be higher in conscientiousness, which is require for much of the drudgery and maintenance work characteristic of a mature company.’
