Election Integrity’s Biggest Threat: Big TechWhy Republicans Cannot Win; Monitor Tech Manipulations, Make Findings Publicby Robert Epstein

[T]ech companies… can flip elections any and all ways they please without anyone knowing.

They are things like newsfeeds, search results, search suggestions, sequences of YouTube videos. None of that is recorded anywhere. It affects us, as Google executives know full well.
It just appears, we click, and it disappears. It is stored nowhere, it leaves no paper trail for authorities to trace. It can be used to manipulate, and it is being used to manipulate very deliberately and strategically, especially at Google.
