When you monopolize the internet search, the game changes. It's not just some small issue. It's not their fault they have >80% market share of the free world. I'm not exaggerating by much. When we, society is becoming more and more search and internet dependent, the thought of a few being able to manipulate manually what you see or don't see, should be troubling to you. That is, unless you have a fairyland view of Google (a corporation) and that they could never have bias. Um, like disliking/competing head on with Microsoft. You can't dumb this down and say, oh it's their search they can do what they want to the results. If necessary reconsider what <80% of search means. That owning the internet and what you see. What if they liked affiliate sites? There is certainly a bias against anyone running a site with affiliate programs. Right there you have bias in search results.
