Apparently, Google tries to apply some kind of filter, perhaps even proactive, to make the output seems changed. Duckduckgo seems giving out things simply by relevance.

I can't say who is better. If thought in a good way, Google's method can filter away wannabe manipulators who deliberately spread false or sensational "information". However, this can also make Google be the said manipulator.

I surely don't think manipulation is done by only one side.

"filtering" is just a nice word for censorship
Google is also censoring piracy,conspiracies and basically any information that dont fit with their agenda (any conspiracies except the ones that are related to Russian and Trump)

they dont want you to ask any questions just be a sheep and consume more MSM bullshit

Watch this

Regardless of what search engine I use and what media I read, I have the freedom to decide what kind of information I accept. If they don't give me what I (tend to) believe then I simply shut it off.

I sometimes do think information is only useful when I want to use it for my agenda (or agenda that I agree).

Edit: China is indeed a good example of this. Their official media usually speak against Western MSM -- and in greater quantity, but they are almost universally shunned, despite endorsement from the government. Arguably they resorted to the GFW to make people up there believe them more.

I have been using google since I use internet even during elementary school when it was a new thing and I haven't paid attention to google censorship before this whole coronavirus event
now I have realized how we are being fooled and manipulated not only by the TV media but also by the internet media

I stopped using google search engine from now on and I recommend you to do the same

Thanks. I am now trying them out. Brave seems to provide better secure browsing functionalities, and removes the need to maintain multiple browsers.
