President Donald Trump ripped Google for allegedly suppressing conservative news outlets in its search algorithms with a series of Tuesday tweets.

Trump appears to have learned of the report after watching a recorded version of Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobb’s report from the previous evening.

Dobbs, in term, learned of the report from PJMedia, which “performed a Google search for ‘Trump’ using the search engine’s ‘News’ tab and analyzed the results using Sharyl Attkisson’s media bias chart,” finding that “not a single right-leaning site appeared on the first page of search results.”

PJMedia broke the results down further finding “CNN, by a wide margin, appeared most frequently, with nearly twice as many results returned as the second-place finisher, The Washington Post. Other left-leaning outlets also fared well, including NBC, CNBC, The Atlantic, and Politico. The only right-leaning sites to appear in the top 100 were The Wall Street Journal and Fox News with 3 and 2 results respectively.”
