Google Sentiment

In 2018, Google's Danny Sullivan said Google does not recognize sentiment in Google Search. He was asked again in 2021 and Danny Sullivan, no, Google still does not consider it for uses in Search.

This was worded a different way but the question Danny Sullivan said "no" to was "Does Google now consider sentiments in content about people reputation / slander?"
