The Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSA), Brazil's top election court, fined Fernando Haddad (President Jair Bolsonaro's leftist opponent) for having a contract with Google to manipulate search results during the election.
Luiz Edson Fachin, of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), ruled that the PT candidate for the presidency, Fernando Haddad, paid Google to highlight negative content and manipulated searches to point to a website with negative coverage of Bolsonaro.
Google wasn't fined because they claimed that as soon as they were notified by the court of the irregularities they dishonored the contract.
This is a common practice by Google in the United States.
Google manipulates search results for conservatives and conservative publishers to point to negative articles and hit pieces.
So does Google allow people or companies to pay them in order to manipulate search results or only if they are far left/socialist/communist websites?
