Senior Google software engineer, Greg Coppola, has dismissed the idea that Big Tech is “politically neutral” and called out his company as “very biased,” joining Project Veritas’ growing stable of whistleblowers. Coppola said the Google has “merged” with the Democrat party.
“I’m very concerned to see Big Tech and Big Media merge basically with a political party, with the Democratic party,” Greg Coppola, a Googler since 2014 who works on the AI Google Assistant, told Project Veritas. The real question Coppola posed is “Are we going to continue to think for ourselves or are we going to just let the biggest tech companies decide who wins every election from now on?” And according to a report by RT, Coppola says that he knows Google is attempting to manipulate public thought.
With decades of programming experience under his belt (he’s been coding since age 10, he said) Coppola wanted to inform the masses of his growing certainty about Google’s political slant. Algorithms “don’t write themselves – we write them to do what we want them to do,” he pointed out, explaining that even AI machine learning is “just a tool that we control.” Coppola chose Google News as an example to prove his point. Google News is a news aggregator that draws from “just a handful of sites, and all those sites are vitriolically against President Trump, which I really consider to be interference in the American election.”

Why doesn't someone mention this memo from Teddy (Obama's former digital campaign director) to HRC during hearings? They specifically mention their partnerships with Google and other tech companies/social media sites. @tedcruz @RepMattGaetz @Jim_Jordan https://t.co/UocuS3f5cH pic.twitter.com/oI9pxxzjAc
