Former Google employee accuses tech giant of bias

Former Google employee accuses tech giant of bias


>>GOOGLE AGAIN IS FACING CHARGES OF USING ITS AWESOME INFLUENCE ON THE INTERNET TO AFFECT AN ELECTION. A FORMER GOOGLE ENGINEER WHO CLAIMS HE WAS FIRED IN PART BECAUSE OF HIS OWN CONSERVATIVE VIEWS SAYS THE COMPANY IS ACTIVELY SEEKING TO INFLUENCE THE 2020 ELECTION AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP. THE PRESIDENT REFERRED TO THE ENGINEERS CLAIMS IN A SERIES OF TWEETS THIS MORNING SAYING THAT HE WOULD BE WATCHING GOOGLE CLOSELY. JOINING US NOW IS THAT FORMER GOOGLE ENGINEER, A KEVIN. KEVIN, THANK YOU FOR COMING IN. SO, EXPLAIN TO US EXACTLY HOW IS GOOGLE PLANNING ON TIPPING THE SCALES AGAINST THE PRESIDENT IN THE COMING ELECTION?>>WELL, GOOGLE HAS A LOT OF MECHANISMS FOR MANY PLAYED IN PUBLIC OPINION. YOUTUBE ITSELF DELETES ABOUT 8 MILLION VIDEOS AND 3 MILLION CHANNELS EVERY THREE MONTHS. THEY CENSOR CONSERVATIVE CONTENT CONSTANTLY. THERE ARE POLLING POLITICIANS AND ADS. PEOPLE INSIDE GOOGLE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THINGS LIKE REMOTELY TURNING OFF DONALD TRUMPS PHONE TO TURN IT INTO A BRICK. OR TO DISABLE HIS STAFFERS E-MAIL ACCOUNTS. THEY’RE LOOKING FOR WAYS TO MANIPULATE THE ELECTORAL PROCESS.>>KEVIN, STEVE FORBES HERE. IN TERMS OF GOOGLE ITSELF, IS THERE ANY RECOGNITION THAT THERE MIGHT BE POLITICAL RETRIBUTION? AS YOU KNOW PROJECT — HAS A COUPLE OF GOOGLE PEOPLE SAY LIKE YOU IN PUBLIC THAT THEY DISCRIMINATE, ACTIVELY DISCRIMINATE AND POST ABOUT DISCRIMINATING AGAINST — UNIVERSITY WHICH IS GOOD MAINSTREAM, IT HAS PEOPLE GIVING LECTURES.>>THEY DON’T SEEM VERY CONCERNED, DO THEY. I’VE SEEN VIDEOS FROM THEIR EXECUTIVES WERE THE EXECUTIVES SAY THEY SHOW UP IN FRONT OF CONGRESS, THEY TELL THE CONGRESSMAN WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR AND THEN THEY GO OFF AND DO THEIR OWN THING. IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE THEY’RE TAKING IT VERY SERIOUSLY.>>THIS IS CAROL ROSS. WHEN I THINK ABOUT THINGS LIKE PROGRAMMING FOR RANKING IN SEARCH RESULTS. THERE IS SOME LEVEL OF BIAS WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO DECIDE WHO GETS TO BE FIRST AND SECOND, HOW MUCH OF THE BIAS THAT YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE ALLEGING GOOGLE HAS IS IMPLICIT VERSUS EXPLICIT?>>THAT’S HARD TO SAY. I THINK PEOPLE LIKE GOOGLE HAVE A VERY SPECIFIC WORLDVIEW OF THE GROUP DON’T NECESSARILY THINK THEY ARE TWO SIDES TO EVERY ISSUE AND IN A LOT OF CASES THEY BELIEVE WE ARE THE MORAL AUTHORITY, WE HAVE THE RIGHT VIEW ON THINGS AND EVERYBODY ELSE IS BACKWARD. THINK THAT’S WHERE THE DANGER COMES FROM MY KEVIN, I’M WONDERING GOOGLE PUT OUT THE STATEMENT IN REACTION TO YOUR ALLEGATION. QUOTE, WE FORCE OUR WORKPLACE POLICIES WITHOUT REGARD TO POLITICAL VIEWPOINT. LIVELY DEBATE IS A HALLMARK OF GOOGLES CULTURE. HARASSMENT, DISCRIMINATION AND THE UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS AND THEFT OF CONFIDENTIAL COMPANY INFORMATION IS NOT. SO, GOOGLE ACTUALLY SAYS WITH ALL DUE RESPECT THAT YOU WERE FIRED AFTER YOU VIOLATED COMPANY POLICIES INCLUDING DOWNLOADING CONFIDENTIAL GOOGLE DOCUMENTS. HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO THEIR STATEMENT AND THOSE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST YOU?>>THAT’S COMPLETELY FALSE. WHAT HAPPEN IS GOOGLE FOLLOWED ME FOR REPORTING HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION AND OTHER WORKPLACE ISSUES BUT INTERNALLY AND EXTERNALLY.>>KEVIN, YOU ARE MAKING A LOT OF ACCUSATIONS THAT A BIASED CULTURE IS SOMEHOW WORKING ITS WAY INTO AN ALGORITHM THAT THE CEO OF GOOGLE IN FRONT OF CONGRESS HAS DENIED UNEQUIVOCALLY. SO, WHILE WHAT YOU’RE SAYING CERTAINLY APPEALS TO A CONSERVATIVE BASE ON THE PRESIDENT AND HIS HUGE TECHNOLOGY COMPANY HAS IT IN FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND FOR THE ADMINISTRATION, YOUR APP OFFERING ZERO PROOF THAT THE ALGORITHM, LET’S SAY THE CULTURE IS AS BIASED AS YOU SAY BUT THE ALGORITHM DISCRIMINATES AGAINST CONSERVATIVES. YOU’RE GETTING A LOT OF PLAY FOR SAYING THIS BUT ZERO PROOF THAT IS TRUE.>>I THINK IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO INDIVIDUAL DECISIONS. GOOGLE HAS A BOTTOM SUBCULTURE WHERE INDIVIDUAL ENGINEERS HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF LATITUDE IN DECIDING WHAT THEY WORK ON, WHAT THEY FIX AND DON’T FIX. ONE THING I SAW THERE IS OF A LIBERAL REPORTER WILL E-MAIL GOOGLE ABOUT A PROBLEM, ENGINEERS WILL PICK IT UP VOLUNTARILY VERY EAGERLY. THOUGH FIX IT WITHIN HOURS, IT WILL BE A PRIORITY FOR THEM. IF CONSERVATIVES COMPLAIN ABOUT SOMETHING IT WON’T BE A PRIORITY. WHEN I COMPLAINED ABOUT SEEMING CORRECT RESULTS WERE DONALD TRUMPS BOOK RESEARCH FOR MAY PICTURES OF HIS BOOK AND IT SHOWS — INSTEAD I FILED A COMPLAINT ABOUT IT AND THEY SAT ON IT FOR NINE MONTHS.>>WE ALL REMEMBER THOSE VIDEOS THAT APPEARED AFTER THE ELECTION IN 2016 OF THE GOOGLE EXECUTIVE EXECUTIVES. IT WAS KIND OF A DIRGE. SOME EXECUTIVES SEEM TO BE ON THE EDGE OF CRYING AND THEY MADE STATEMENTS AND THEY WOULD NOT LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN, WERE LOOKING AT A VIDEO. THERE WAS A TIME WHEN ENGINEERS WERE KNOWN AS MORE CONSERVATIVE THAN THE AVERAGE FOLK. CLEARLY THAT HAS CHANGED WITH THE NEW VIRTUAL REALITY OF ENGINEERS. YOU KNOW WHY?>>I’VE NOTICED THAT TOO. THAT ENGINEERS USE TO BE MORE APOLITICAL. I BELIEVE IT’S A COMBINATION. GOOGLE GETS A LOT OF NEW GRANTS FROM COLLEGE AND A LOT AREN’T ACTIVATED WHEN THEY COME IN. THE MORE ACTIVIST EMPLOYEES ARE GIVEN FREE REIGN. THERE’S NO ADULTS IN THE ROOM. THERE’S NOBODY TELLING THEM TREAT YOUR COWORKERS WITH RESPECT AND ACT ON BIAS. IT’S NOT PART OF THE CULTURE.>>IS THERE GROUP INSIDE GOOGLE THAT IS REALLY WHIPPING? THAT’S A STRONG WORD, BUT INFLUENCING MANAGEMENT IN A WAY IN WHICH MANAGEMENT HAS TO DO THINGS TO APPEASE THIS GROUP HAVE THEY GIVEN INTO THAT KIND OF ACTIVISM?>>I WOULD SAY THAT’S TRUE IN MY EXPERIENCE. THERE IS A GROUP LOOSELY DEFINED BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF ACTIVIST EMPLOYEES AND CAN PRESSURE THE MANAGEMENT AND THE MANAGEMENT PRETTY MUCH ALWAYS CAVES.>>AGAIN YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL BETWEEN MAKING AN ALLEGATION OF CULTURAL BIAS THAT LEANS POLITICALLY WHICH MAY BE TRUE GOOGLE JUST LIKE CHICK-FIL-A PROBABLY LEANS TOWARD THE MORE CONSERVATIVE DIRECTION AND WHETHER OR NOT THAT TRANSLATES INTO A PRODUCT EFFECT. WHILE YOU’RE SAYING THAT THERE’S CULTURAL ISSUES AND CAN POINT TO AN EXAMPLE, IT’S AN ALGORITHM THAT WAS CONSTRUCTED BY DIFFERENT PEOPLE THAT USE GLOBALLY. UNLESS YOU CAN DEMONSTRATE TO US AND ANYONE ELSE OTHER THAN GETTING ATTENTION BECAUSE YOU’RE MAKING THESE ALLEGATIONS, THAT’S ALL THEY ARE. THE ALGORITHM ITSELF ARE YOU ALLEGING IT HAS BEEN PROGRAMMED BY LIBERALS INTENT ON DISCRIMINATING AGAINST CONSERVATIVES?>>I WOULD NOT USE THE TERM ALGORITHM TO TALK ABOUT THE BIAS. THEIR BLACKLISTS AND PARAMETERS THAT GO IN THERE’S WAYS THE SYSTEM IS CONFIGURED.

  1. Please, we all know that google will be the monster that brings forth the Anti-Christ…it's right in front of us…open your eyes…

  2. I remember when the government broke up our nation's telephone company…. Ma Bell for being the outrageous monopoly they were. The time has come to break up these big tech monopolies! They are the vehicle for all of the hate that is being spewed from the left to the right. It has become more than apparent what is going on. Breaking them all up is long overdue

  3. Google and fb will use their algorithms to manipulate the election. They should do a 2 year investigation into google like the have done with Russian interference issue.

  4. Of course it's true…just do a search of anything negative about o bama …..you'll usually get a negative TRUMP search

  5. Chick-fil-A serves chicken there's not a lot of political influence they can do but Google is the biggest search engine and can influence people and they can deleting conservative content, run left-wing ads only remove right-wing ads make it harder to find stuff on the internet by putting it in six page

  6. google is too powerful and have enough money to buy their way out of any trouble so unfortunately i dont think anything will be done about their political bias

  7. Let them watch me ,i really dont care .
    I know who and what they are and represent. They can't twist my mind in anyway. Lock and load people its not far off. And we will prevail. Never leave home without your American Express 44 mag.

  8. idiot defending google-look it up jerk Canadian election ads NOT ALLOWED BY GOOGLE….GEEZ THEY SOUND NEUTRAL

  9. Do you really think Russia is interfering with our elections? It is Google & Facebook stupid!

    Global social media is controlled and manipulated the same way Fake News Mainstream media does.

    Check who Sundar Picha is, and his conections wih China.

  10. They are interfering….listen to the conservatives on Utube that are fighting the demonetization, and deleting of their followers and videos!! Wake up America, the deep state is Soros' bed fellow and doing his demonic work!!!

  11. WHO ARE THESE REPORTERS…?!
    For goodness sakes, Big Brother is now in charge of FOX NEWS?!?!
    What demeaning and impertinent questions! Ship these Communists back to Siberia!

  12. Interesting side note. I’ve attempted to watch his video four times. I’ve made it as far as 3 minutes and 8 minutes and it stops and instead of giving me the play button it gives me the “start from the beginning” button. My only option. When I try to fast forward it does the same thing. That’s not a coincidence. Obviously Google has interests that lean left. And limiting views on this video, and controlling viewership in ways they want, is censorship. They have too much power and hide behind the very tech they create. I’d love to watch this but Google isn’t going to let me today.

  13. He is not the ONLY ex google employee to say this. We have more than one witness and Trump watching them closely does nothing. They NEED to be charged and watched MORE Closely

  14. Of course they did and continue to do so with impunity. Alt media cites have been treated with bias constantly. Use YouTube for list of ALL videos you are looking for because google will only display one or two and display other videos by others

  15. Today I am searching the term half man half woman and my spelling was way off. Instead I get "Homepride" on Google search. I go to Duckduckgo and search for the word and they give me the result that I wanted – "Hermaphrodite". Google is trash.

  16. If any of those people on the panel, especially the one on the bottom left of my screen, had bothered to try to use the Google search engine for any conservative book, statistics or like one of them said, look for Trump's book, they would see "algorithms" intentionally manually set up to only show the results that suit their ideology in opposition to conservative values. Then they should try the same search in a search engine like DuckDuckGo or Startpage and they will get fair and unbiased results that are nothing like what they saw with the Google Search Engine. That would be proof enough right there. This is not the only whistle blower who has said this. Along with the Project Veritas undercover video of whats her name revealing Google's attitude and intentions toward the coming election, along with another Google whistle blower in that same video, that should be pretty compelling evidence. However, it looks like we have a leftist on the panel.

    You know that it has come to light that Google is working to help the Chinese Military, while they refused to help the American Military. I'd say that sums it up pretty well, and also makes the CEO's Traitors to America!

  17. google doesn't plan to, they, facebook and others  already ARE doing stuff to fullfil what they accuse Russia of doing: meddling in US elctions to affect the outcome.

  18. Google is the most dangerous political operation in America! Secretly manipulating voters to advance your political opinion is the largest threat to democracy possible! Putting MSNBC and CNN at the top of search results as trusted news sources is obvious intent to slant information!

  19. Based on this interview, The WH has enough info to make a "national security" case for seizing Google assets and nationalizing them.

  20. The algorithm that makes "Mein Kampf" come up when someone googles Trump's book is an obvious case of leftist algorithmic manipulation. DUH!

  21. I think the "purple tie guy" is a little over the top. He sure sounds like a plant from the democrats.
    Either he knows absolutely nothing about programming and "algorithms" Or he actually knows an awful lot about them – and instead of asserting his point with real information is attempting to use the same tactics he is accusing Kevin of using.

  22. One more of the above the law crew, talk about scum. Google has now way out. Other than their own actions. Many outside coders already know this. When an some one else controls your answers to your questions then it can be manipulated buy that individual easily an google allows it in fact pushes it. As AT&T was broken up as a monopoly so should google an face book an others. Allowing for more providers to share in the system stopping this control from one source. That is as we know very corruptEd from withiin

  23. Interesting video:
    Despite being an investor in Google these claims of bias are disturbing and well substantiated.
    Google is largely run by groups of id*ot progressive employees who have been allowed to believe they run the company.
    In the video who is the frumpy looking clown with the bad afro who attempts to challenge the guest with dripping hypocrisy. The guy is ignorant and f*cking arrogant. He tries to dismiss the claims but shows a stupidity about "algorithms" and the human involvement in their creation and moderating that is astounding. Unlike the other four hosts he shows a close mindedness and even tries to interrupt the guest when another host is leading.

  24. Who is this moron in the bottom left corner? This gentleman worked at Google and he’s not the only one saying this. It’s obvious that Google is VERY bias.

  25. Yeah google had the same response to “Christian” being banned from Adsense. They never made another peep when the twitter reply clearly showed the bias while “Muslim” was not banned.

    They have absolutely no respect for this country or it’s Democracy. This should be considered treason.

  26. Google is no longer a big influencer in my world. Google doesn't serve my demographic correctly, of course they could if they had a human work on it.

  27. You IDIOTS, algorithms do what you want them to, you can always tweak them to do what you want. These UNEDUCATED people won't recognize an algorithm, or a mathematical equation, if it hit them on the face.

  28. Thank you for be truthful. I made reports at least 8 to 12 times I don't think the complaint report was even looked at or remedy to answers.

  29. Try to Google anything positive about President Trump – you'll go 10 pages before you find it on Google or YouTube videos

    That's why he needs to Tweet about his greatness

    POTUS is using Twitter, they'd be fool$ to $hut him off.

    And they haven't

  30. It's Orwellian: Goggle using out-of-control censorship bias "artificial intelligence (A.I.)." Only the tip of the out-of-control robotics iceberg.

  31. @ Fox software engineers are not really engineers in the most traditional sense. if there were no computers, these guys would mostly have been teachers, researchers, academicians not really working engineers

  32. We've entered the phase where we [pretend to] believe AI is completely disconnected from human thought/action.
    We might be wise to remember: Garbage in —->>> Garbage out.

  33. hmmmmm…. we all saw the vid when trump got elected and all the google people were crying on stage saying the fight was not over… good for this guy and gonands….. the little fury man… yeah… who's that that's pat…

  34. I am just an ordinary user of your "you tube thing" and I noticed that there is something change in the concept of the way things are being done. For instance, I can now just read the headlines of conservative news and can not go on the substance of the news because the system won't allow me to, whereas, any other news is okey. I used to read all the news item but why is this happening. I can only say that there is political bias involved. Now I won't be able to balanced my knowledge of the situation based on "you tube" where I get my first hand information. I would really be please if you could bring it back to normal.

  35. Algorithm reflects thoughts culture of its developers. I’m surprised Kevin did not cover that. By the way I am in the heart of Silicon Valley, and among my friends who are also in the tech industry heavily, we rank Google as the most dangerous company,

  36. Wake up people of America. I have given the message of what is to come and what we must do. Be warned and be ready. Life is not a game.

  37. The best way to hurt any company is to stop using their services. Currently, I'm using BING search …… just because it's not Google.

  38. Chick Fillet doesn’t run a search engine either. Look up stuff on google and chem trails and then look it up on DuckDuckGo. Anything that leans left or right will be different. Google all left and DuckDuckGo both and honest.

  39. What a oxymoron statement by Google 2:56. If they recruit only liberal, brainwashed , bozos, how can they have diverse thought process. Yes they may be deliberating but what is the opposite views if everyone is echoing the same thing.

  40. The other thing Trump should do is purposely target all the Silicon Valley companies H1B, GC petitions and delay by 100 YEARS as vast majority of them are imported bunch from 3rd world country.

  41. ANYONE can see that Google is extremely biased. And what a sorry performance of what should be a helpful way for all to communicate turned into a wedge of hatred intended to mislead the people. Clearly those at Google have a closet FULL OF SKELETONS..bursting to get out.

  42. Go ahead google interfere. There are thousands of people willing to literally burn everything google the ground. And I'll be roasting marshmallows singing the Star Spangled Banner.

  43. Gaslighting over and over by the Left/ you didn’t see it you didn’t hear it, it didn’t happen.,. Resist at all costs!

  44. Omg the Media talks about google like they are a person!.” Google won’t let it happen anymore”. Uh huh. Let’s all
    Pretend that Google is the good guy.

  45. I can’t wait for the FBI or Secret Service raids on Google HQ. It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. Regulation is coming!!!

  46. Google has may employees who are the very same type EVIL as the Panphleteers of the French Revolution that whipped up the Paris mob ito the Red Terror.
