#BRAZIL: Top Election Court Says Google Rigged Search For Leftist Pres. Candidate

[world politics news]

The Supreme Electoral Tribunal, Brazil’s top election court, fined Fernando Haddad, Pres. Jair Bolsonaro’s leftist opponent, for having a contract with Google to manipulate search results during the election.

Haddad paid Google to highlight negative content and manipulated searches to point to a website with negative coverage of Bolsonaro.

Google wasn’t fined because they said that as soon as they were notified by the court of the irregularities, they dishonored the contract.
