Google execs panic at Trump election

Brad Parscale

Newly leaked video footage shows Google executives bemoaning the results of the 2016 election in the first all-staff meeting following Donald Trump's electoral victory. Other conservatives seized on the video as evidence of Google's bias and echoed McCarthy's sentiments. Addressing the employees, co-founder Brin calls the election result and the week as hard and goes on to say that "Myself as an immigrant and a refugee, I certainly find the selection deeply offensive and I know many of you do too". "And I know many of you do, too".

During a grilling in a CNN interview Dorsey said the company needed to "constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is. more Left-leaning". That someone leaked the whole thing to Breitbart, and they have published it.

"Google needs to explain why this isn't a threat to the republic", tweeted Brad Parscale, the manager of Trump's 2020 election campaign.

Trump himself has launched several attacks against the tech giants, suggesting that Google, Twitter and Facebook may be breaking the law by favouring Left-wing views.

In a statement, Google said employees and executives in the all-hands meeting were expressing their personal views after a "long and divisive election season". Google was seen to have further provoked Republicans by failing to send an executive to testify at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing last week on foreign interference in elections. "For over 20 years, everyone at Google has been able to freely express their opinions at these meetings", a Google spokesperson said.

"To the contrary, our products are built for everyone, and we design them with extraordinary care to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without regard to political viewpoint", they added.

The channel posted a 25-minute clip of the video in Russian on its website and said it plans to air more from the interview later. During the interview, Petrov and Boshirov claim to be "middle men" dealing in nutritional supplements, fitness, and health foods.

Among the people who spoke were Sundar Pichai, Google's chief executive, and Ruth Porat, Alphabet's chief financial officer. "Google and Twitter and Fb, they're in actuality treading on very, very timid territory, and they also prefer to observe out."Then, a day later, he tweeted a video claiming Google promoted dilapidated President Barack Obama's Disclose of the Union addresses every January but not his".

Google's Vice President Eileen Naughton said their leaders had encouraged their employees to understand "all sides of the political spectrum".

It is not a surprise that Google employees and executives - many of whom are significant donors to the Democratic Party - were disappointed by the outcome of the presidential election.

I think they need stepped on.

The meeting, described in earlier media accounts, including in The New York Times, felt "like a funeral", Mike Cernovich, a right-wing media personality and agitator, said on Twitter after Breitbart posted the video.
