    Insider Blows Whistle & Exec Reveals Google Plan to Prevent “Trump situation” in 2020 on Hidden Cam – Project Veritas

    “This is the third tech insider who has bravely stepped forward to expose the secrets of Silicon Valley. These new documents, supported by undercover video, raise questions of Google’s neutrality and the role they see themselves fulfilling in the 2020 elections.”

    Jen Gennai is the head of “Responsible Innovation” for Google, a sector that monitors and evaluates the responsible implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. In the video, Gennai says Google has been working diligently to “prevent” the results of the 2016 election from repeating in 2020:

    “We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again.”

    “What YouTube did is they changed the results of the recommendation engine. And so what the recommendation engine is it tries to do, is it tries to say, well, if you like A, then you’re probably going to like B. So content that is similar to Dave Rubin or Tim Pool, instead of listing Dave Rubin or Tim Pool as people that you might like, what they’re doing is that they’re trying to suggest different, different news outlets, for example, like CNN, or MSNBC, or these left leaning political outlets.”

    ---------------------------

    Its time to break some of these big tech companies up as they have become too monopolistic. Also even after being broken up if they want to discriminate on their platforms to that great of an extent that protection from lawsuits they have needs to be taken away.

    Now Google is nervous Sen Warren wants them broken up because it would be harder to stop 2016 from happening again if they were broken into smaller companies.

      The best way to stop this is for every person who abhors their practices to immediately stop using their products.

        Every "shadowy" tampering always goes the Leftist Democrat way.
        They violate honor, they jump legality they constantly invent lies, etc. etc.
        They truly are enemies to Americanism. To the left the ends justify the means.

            Aren’t Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. falling under the moniker of monopoly?
            Seems that argument can be made.

              I work in Big Tech. No, there is no conspiracy, but most of my coworkers hate Trump for obvious reasons.

                David Ruben discussing the subject. The left no longer plays by any rules. I'm looking forward to the revolution to come.

                Obvious reasons? Most obvious being that they are affiliated with you?

                  one, it isnt censorship unless the government's doing it.

                  two, the answer is always more free speech.

                  if you don't like Google then jump on board the next time someone creates a contender.

                  the government needs to stay out of the business of telling Google or anyone else what to do with regards to free speech.

                      As always the self-appointed elite gets to decide and determine "reality". As years go by people won't know. Now that is the annihilation of freedom, of free choices.

                        I dont believe so.

                        AT& T was a monopoly. States made it illegal to use anyone else.

                        Google isn't anymore in monopoly than CNN was a monopoly. all it takes is a group to fund a competitor that will allow both sides and I have no doubt that person will crush Google.

                        IMO Google does some uncompetitive things, and for that day maybe receiving trouble in court soon, but I dont buy any argument that they are a monopoly.

                        remember that if you give the current president power to shut down or alter the conduct of Google then you also give the next Obama the power to shut down arbitrarily any competitors he doesn't like.

                          Donkey your mistake is in thinking the libtards won't do precisely that whenever they wish. Just because we give google and amazon a pass doesn't mean a thing to them. Its just weakness to them. If we aren't willing to take a hatchet to google and amazon and any other entity that is in opposition to free speech then all we're going to get is more reductions in free speech. We get what we tolerate.

                          This is a zero sum game. Either we win or they do. Playing by rules the other side doesn't play by is a losers game. Your dignity and your conscience won't keep you warm when the power goes out, nor will it feed you when the bread lines form.

                          AT&T is so last millennium.

                          Google controls the market. Fairly or unfairly they have arguably an insurmountable head start. Even MS, despite defaulting every PC and every copy of Explorer to bing, can't dent the market. Google has absolute power and we know what absolute power does. That's when maybe the government should step in.

                          CNN is a poor example. It's a TV channel. Very easy to switch channels if you don't like what you hear. With google you don't even know your search results are manipulated. Besides doesn't the government step in i.e. have to approve media mergers for the exact purpose of avoiding media monopolies. Or has Succession lied to me?

                          My point is that the landscape has changed. Social media is controlled by an oligopoly. An oligopoly with a decidedly leftist bent. That's not a good thing.

                          Hey @Gator Fever I just saw where you posted this same thread on the political forum at that inferior Gator site. How'd you like the responses? Literally 100% knee-jerk bashing of Project Veritas and 0% addressing the actual content of the story. Seriously, why bother?

                          I think you're probably right, it's not an overt (or even covert) conspiracy, it's just the expected groupthink that results when you put a bunch of like-minded people together. In this case, like-minded in the sense that they all have a viscerally angry reaction to this GIF:

                          [​IMG]

                          The obvious reason that people in Big Tech hate President Trump is that people in Big Tech tend to be "men" (ironic air quotes) who were not popular in high school, never played organized sports, did not have attractive dates for their senior prom, do not use guns or trucks for their intended purposes, are under 5'11" and outside the 165-265 lb. weight range. That's based on scientific research, you could look it up.

                            That’s because the janitorial services company that he works for has cleaning contracts with various buildings in So Cal.

                              A few people think Google can actually affect a million votes or more with undecideds with their manipulations. i am sure some naive people can be influenced. Hopefully something crazy doesn't happen in 2020.

                              They need to go ahead and break Google and some others up and take the protections from these places if they are going to act as an extension of the Democrat party.

                                Well he did raise their taxes with the "tax cut". You can start there. That is why the Republicans got crushed in Orange County after them dominating the county for decades. Then you can talk about the California wildfire and Trumps reaction. Then you can point to Trump's constant beefing with Big Tech. Whining. Then he beefs with our Governor. Then he does the concentration camps. Why would Big Tech or California like Trump?

                                Ive been purely Tech since moving to California. Well actually when I worked on the Mars-VCA aquisition, that was a pet hospital. But other than that, all Tech.

                                    Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
