What kind of sucker do you have to be to count on Google services for anything? Even Charlie Brown is shaking his head.

50 billionaire families have already poured $600M+ into this year's elections — mostly in support of Trump.

That's only 0.6% of their total wealth. It essentially costs them nothing to drown our democracy in dark money.

Google Search now has an option to search the "web," which is not the default anymore.

@arstechnica

I really don't understand the profitable part of Google giving "AI" results instead of web results. How could that possibly not be more expensive for them?

I do understand the potential for political propaganda though.
