He also said that the company "spares no effort to develop our products and will not take political bias into account when implementing policies."

He adds that in order to manage billions of searches from hundreds of billions of pages, "we rely on Algorithms and implement rigorous user testing and evaluation processes before making any changes to them."

On Tuesday, Ted Cruz (Ted Cruz), chairman of the Senate Judicial subcommittee, will hold a hearing with Google. Speaking at hearings with Facebook and Twitter in April, he said many Americans believe big technology companies are biased against conservatives.

"I think if technology companies use monopoly power to censor political statements, it will lead to real anti-monopoly issues," Cruz said.

Since then, Facebook, Twitter and Google have denied that their platforms are politically biased.

Cruz and Republican Senate Joshua Holly (Josh Hawley) on Monday asked the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate the way large technology companies plan their content and said: "Google, Facebook and Twitter have had a significant impact on the comments. They control the ads we see, the news we read, and the information we get. They review one part of the content and magnify the other through completely opaque algorithms and intentional decisions. So few people control so much talk that this has never happened in this country. "

In April, Mazie Hirono, the leading Democrat on the committee, said: "We can't let Republicans harass technology companies, let hatred, danger and misleading content continue to grow, and make it difficult for technology companies to carry out their content governance work."

Last week, Trump said he planned to summon large social media companies to the White House and that he had asked the judiciary to explore "regulatory and legislative solutions to protect the right of all Americans to freedom of speech."
