Google responds to Trump’s tweet-rage: We didn’t rig search against you!

In a tweet written at 5.24am on Tuesday morning (10.24am United Kingdom time), the USA president claimed search results for "Trump news" only showed reports from "Fake New [sic] Media", with his arch nemesis CNN featuring heavily.
At first, we made a decision to test this by punching "Trump News" into Google Search and the first story on top came from the only source of news that Trump likes, FOX News. Last night, Fox News' Lou Dobbs highlighted a report from PJ Media that says that 96 percent of news results returned when you Google the president are from "National Left-Wing media".
There are many other reasons PJ Media didn't see certain conservative publications in the top 100 results in their survey, based on how the Google Newsalgorithmworks, and the specific moments in which the searches were conducted. They are controlling what we can & cannot see.
Trump's tweets about Google this morning fall squarely into the same category: He is complaining that Google highlights reputable mainstream news sources rather than partisan outlets more favorable to the president.
According to Google, its patented algorithm, known as PageRank, prioritizes top search results based on the number of factors, including the number of times a site references a given keyword, the number of outlets who link back to the site in question and how long the page in question has been in existence.
It's also unclear just what the actor-turned-politician means by his claim that the situation "will be addressed", as he has a habit of making Twitter promises that he can't keep.
Google has since denied the president's accusations. The site used a classification that ranks nearly every mainstream news outlet - other than Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, the Economist, and DailyMail.com - as leftwing.
