As our entire media world moves ever further into the newfound and ever-expanding digital realm, there are concerns over just how powerful some corporations are becoming online.
In the realm of social media and search engines, this worry is well founded: Facebook, Twitter, and Google have all been outed as biased against conservatives – often from the inside.
The latest strike against Google, in particular, came in the form of a recent interview between investigative journalists at Project Veritas and an engineer for the company, in which the latter explained how algorithmic adjustments are being made for the purpose of swaying the public political opinion.
Now, the enormous corporation is taking revenge on the patriotic whistleblower.
A Google engineer who spoke out to accuse the company of pushing its political bias into search and news results was put on administrative leave on Wednesday hours after speaking out.
Greg Coppola spoke to Project Veritas to share his views and said that while he ‘respects’ his manager, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, his comments on bias are inaccurate.
He claims to be based in New York and says he has worked for Google since 2014. On Thursday, he launched a GoFundMe page asking for donations because he’d been put on leave.
‘I am on administrative leave from Google and will probably be fired for an interview expressing concern that big tech is taking sides in elections.
Concerns over this sort of election meddling have been at the forefront of the alternative American media, who have been victimized by fascist tactics of censorship employed by Google and others.
The US government has launched an antitrust investigation into Google and other online leviathans, after concerns over their bias and irresponsible use of power were raised during the White House’s recent “social media summit”.
