‘If you’re in the news business, you obey Google’: Tucker Carlson blasts tech giant’s power over media

by Mica Soellner, Washington Examiner  |  Published on June 17, 2020

Fox News host Tucker Carlson condemned the unchecked power tech giants like Google have over media companies following a debacle over whether the company demonetized conservatives outlets for their coverage of recent Black Lives Matter protests.

“Most media companies are dependent on Google,” Carlson said during his show on Tuesday. “… So, if you’re in the news business, you obey Google. When Google tells you to do something, you do it. You have no choice. They can bankrupt you in a minute, and they will.”

An NBC report that came out on Tuesday falsely claimed Google banned the Federalist and conservative financial blog ZeroHedge from its ad platform after the company became aware of research about right-wing media bias and misinformation regarding recent unrest over racial injustice in the United States.

Google pushed back on the report saying it did not demonetize the Federalist and instead worked with the publication to clean up its comments section that went against its policies of using dangerous or derogatory language.
