Google defends Trump election reaction

Leaked Google Video Shows Co-founder Sergey Brin and CEO Sundar Pichai Consoling Employees Days After Donald Trump Elected as POTUS WATCH: Google Execs Bash Trump Supporters, Want To Make Trump Admin 'Blip' In History

A video published on Wednesday by the Breitbart website shows senior executives commenting the morning after the 2016 election.

Google has denied that a leaked video showing its co-founder and chairman expressing his disappointment that Donald Trump had been elected as U.S. president suggested that there was any political bias built into its products. Google says it doesn't rank search results to manipulate political sentiment.

Sergey Brin can be seen holding a microphone and telling workers that he found the election "deeply offensive" and that "I know many of you do too". And it's being stalked by allegations of partisan bias which have intensified in recent weeks.

Trump also alleged that Google had not promoted his state of the union addresses on its famous front door the same way the company had done for former US President Barack Obama.

"For over 20 years, everyone at Google has been able to freely express their opinions at these meetings", the statement continued. "Nothing was said at that meeting, or any other meeting, to suggest that any political bias ever influences the way we build or operate our products", it added. "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", the company said.

In addition, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions had expressed "concern" about the way social media companies handled debate on their sites.

On Capitol Hill, Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy indicated that Google would be asked to testify.

"I think they already have", Trump told The Daily Caller in an exclusive September 5 interview, responding to questions about whether Google and Facebook are interfering in elections He added: "I mean the true interference in the last election was that - if you look at all, virtually all of those companies are super liberal companies in favor of Hillary Clinton".

NASA posts incredible video of Hurricane Florence from space
Hurricane Florence has strengthened to a category 4 storm , and it's on a path to potentially cause serious damage in North and SC .

Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN) called Google's leadership "disturbing and unacceptable".

Trump's 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, took to Twitter to voice his protest.

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.

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".

Nationwide warning system test scheduled for next week, officials want Alaska feedback
We don't actually know if the president will send the text himself, but it will have a headline that says "Presidential Alert". People will get test text from the Wireless Emergency Alerts system for the first time on Thursday, Sept. 20.

Schweizer emphasized that Google is certainly entitled to its worldview and can run the company as it wishes, but it can't continue to insist that it's a neutral platform and therefore immune to the requirements that publishers face under the Communications Decency Act of 1996.
