MRC’s Dan Schneider RIPS Google for Dodging ‘Historic’ Hearing Against Big Tech Election Interference

News & Politics

MRC Free Speech Vice President Dan Schneider condemned Google for hiding from accountability and further exposed years of Big Tech election interference.

During a March 28 hearing before the West Virginia State Election Commission, Schneider called out Google for brazenly ignoring a subpoena to answer for putting its thumb on the political scale. 

“I do just want to address the fact that Google has refused the subpoena to appear today,” Schneider said. “Google and the parent company Alphabet is the third largest publicly traded corporation in world history. Its market capitalization of nearly 2 trillion dollars is 400 times the size of the West Virginia budget, yet out of 182,000 employees at Google, not a single one can spare even 10 or 15 minutes to appear today, to talk about this important issue.”

Schneider, along with renowned psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein, Heritage Foundation Senior Research Associate Daniel Cochrane and Facebook Whistleblower Ryan Hartwig testified before the West Virginia SEC on the topic of Big Tech censorship and Free Speech.

Schneider praised the “historic” nature of the hearing, pointing out that the Thursday hearing likely marked the first time a state election commission aimed to address the issues of Google’s and Big Tech’s election-meddling censorship. 

The MRC Free Speech vice president pointed out that Google has not just stonewalled the commission’s hearing, but also the Media Research Center following the release of a scathing report detailing 41 times Google interfered in elections since 2008. Schneider laid example after example of Big Tech’s partisan election activity from 2020, 2022 and 2024. 

Similarly, Schneider called out Big Tech, among them Google, for swaying the 2020 presidential election, brandishing a nationwide survey demonstrating that then-Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would have lost 4.1% of his voters absent Big Tech suppression of the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story. “That is obviously a huge portion of the voting population,” Schneider said. “That effort alone shows that it swayed the election for Joe Biden,” he added, referring to Big Tech.

As for the 2022 midterm elections, Schneider highlighted Google’s apparent favoritism towards Democratic senate candidates in close races. “Google, in almost every case, put the Democrat campaign websites right at the top” of search results, Schneider said of MRC Free Speech America’s findings. This was the case in the Georgia Senate race between NFL star Herschel Walker and pro-abortion “pastor” Raphael Warnock. 

In 2022, the MRC not only exposed Google for burying the campaign websites of Republican senate candidates relative to their Democratic opponents but also uncovered Google aiding Warnock in the runoff by hiding Walker’s campaign website in key areas.

Schneider also noted that Google interfered yet again during the 2024 presidential primaries.  Voters could easily find the campaign page of President Joe Biden and even little-known candidates such as Democrat Marianne Williamson and Republican Will Hild, while prominent candidates such as former President Donald Trump, Governor Ron DeSantis and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley were far more difficult to find.
