Breitbart: In this exclusive article released by Breitbart, a leaked video from Google shows just after the 2016 Presidential elections, Google’s leadership met with employees discussing their reactions to the election. In response to Breitbart’s exclusive, Google later released a statement saying, that while some of their leadership and employees shared their frustrations and feelings about the election, nothing was actually said in that meeting (or any others) regarding political bias that would influence their platform or products and that they are a trustworthy source of information for everyone.
Excerpt from Breitbart:
Co-founder Sergey Brin can be heard comparing Trump supporters to fascists and extremists. Brin argues that like other extremists, Trump voters were motivated by “boredom,” which he says in the past led to fascism and communism.
The Google co-founder then asks his company to consider what it can do to ensure a “better quality of governance and decision-making.”
VP for Global Affairs Kent Walker argues that supporters of populist causes like the Trump campaign are motivated by “fear, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.”
