With this, it conducted a Wall Street Journal investigation included tested and more than 100 interviews about the results of the search engine, which it turns out it is not completely neutral.

The newspaper says also that Google used algorithms and blacklists to prevent the emergence of some controversial topics in the search bar when autocomplete.
