Leaked Video: Google Execs Say What Most Americans Think About Trump’s Election
The election of Donald Trump left the vast majority of Americans wondering: What happened?
Trump won despite the fact that he got fewer votes than his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. But that’s not even the most worrisome part of his election. Trump won by spreading misinformation, targetting low-information voters.
Yes, people have reason to be upset. So I was not surprised by a recently leaked video from 2016 shows Google executives lamenting the election of Trump.
The video, posted on the Breitbart website, shows Google co-founder Sergey Brin saying that the elevation of Donald Trump was not consistent with what the company stands for. During what was clearly an emotional meeting, Google executives also extolled democratic values.
Breitbart says the video was provided by an anonymous source.
Last month Trump accused Google Inc. and other U.S. tech companies of rigging search results about him “so that almost all stories & news is BAD.”
Google has denied any political bias or consideration in developing the algorithms it uses for internet searches.
