DuckDuckGo CEO Boasts About Censoring Pro-Russia Content, Killing Internet Freedom

'Like so many others I am sickened by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the gigantic humanitarian crisis it continues to create...'

(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) The CEO and founder of DuckDuckGo, an internet search engine, announced on Twitter Wednesday that the company will no longer provide unfiltered search results but will exclude “Russian disinformation,” Twitchy reported.

Weinberg did not define “Russian disinformation.”

DuckDuckGo has attracted users by emphasizing data privacy and minimizing search results that reflect the user’s personal bubble or echo chamber.

For years, DuckDuckGo stated that Google did not provide unbiased search results.

Now Weinberg has dropped the search engine’s freedom from partisan thought manipulators.

Weinberg also said DuckDuckGo will provide Facebook- or Twitter-style fact checks on search results and direct users to credible news sources.

Several commentators have suggested that DuckDuckGo must censor and regulate search results in order to comply with sanctions against Russia, including a European Union order that requires search engines to block Russian news services RT and Sputnik.

Weinberg concluded the Twitter thread by assuring users that DuckDuckGo’s new censorship policy will not affect its privacy policy.
