The following is a news analysis.
There's been a lot of chatter about the Arizona governor's race with Republican Kari Lake facing Katie Hobbs, a Democrat. One of the interesting facets of the race includes the fact that Hobbs, in her current position as Secretary of State, will be in charge of overseeing the process and fairness regarding her own race.
After clips were circulated from a remarkable Lake news conference this week, in which the former news reporter excoriated the news media, I wanted to find out more about this contest.
And what I found was that Big Tech is apparently once again putting its thumb on the scale in order to influence votes.
I did a simple Google search for "Kari Lake" hoping to come across the news conference and her campaign website.
But neither was returned on the search-- just some basic information. Not what I was looking for.
I then tried a search under "Google News," but got the same lack of results. I tried adding a few phrases and variations. Nothing led me to her campaign website or the news conference.
Then, I tried the same thing with Lake's opponent. One search for "Katie Hobbs," the Democrat, easily took me to her donation page, her campaign site, and her Secretary of State page.
For Kari Lake, I had slightly more luck when using Duck Duck Go. Using that search engine, it buried her campaign website a bit, but at least it was there as the seventh item.
Ultimately, I found the news conference I was looking for on Lake's Rumble page. Here's a link (below) if you'd like to watch it.
But I just told you a lot about what's going on in this race. And why Lake is so angry at the media.
