> Can someone explain why this is any different

No they can't because it isn't any different.

The article is suggesting bias. There is likely some bias at play but I doubt it is anything nefarious. And it isn't enough to account for the natural bias inherit in the system of news parroting.

> shouldn't that be what is solved?

I don't know. All I know is it likely isn't something I trust anyone at Google or the Government to get right.
