CNN’s Oliver Darcy: Google Can Disprove Trump Charges About State of the Union Bias
CNN Media Reporter Oliver Darcy reported Thursday that Google can easily refute President Donald Trump‘s assertion that Google was biased against him and did not promote his State of the Union Address.

“Google basically, they promote the State of the Union addresses for each president,” Darcy explained. “The first year the president gives a State of the Union address, it’s not really a State of the Union, it’s just an address to Congress.”
“Now the president — the video he tweeted showed no promotion for the 2018 state of the union address, which is not accurate,” he continued. “Google says they did promote it and there are screen shots in the internet archive that show Google had in fact promoted that address.”
Indeed, as Politico‘s Jake Sherman pointed out by way of The Washington Post‘s Brian Fung, a simple Google cache reveals that they did, in fact, promote Trump’s SOTU speech:

“This is a campaign issue,” Darcy later said. “This is something that Republicans are using to campaign in the 2018 election. It’s probably going to be a 2020 campaign issue as well.”
“This is politics at its best and we’re going to see this advanced by Republicans going forward,” he added.
