Veritas Targets Google for Exposure
Project Veritas recently focused on getting Google executive Jen Gennai (head of “Responsible Innovation”)to admit they screwed up in 2016. Google is using special Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms to filter content. It works in such a way that Google can prevent the “next Trump situation” — that is, his re-election next year.
Gennai has violated all sorts of anti-trust rules and has worked to actively censor political speech in the United States of America while claiming to be a ‘Responsible Innovator’.
Google Defends Quasi-Monopoly Status as Needed to “Prevent Next Trump Situation”
Gennai claimed smaller companies do not have the resources to properly prevent Trump’s re-election. Some of the leaked documents highlight “Machine Learning Fairness” and Google’s Practices to make search results “fair and equitable” according to Project Veritas. Below is a most telling and arrogant quote:
Know the Truth and It Shall Set You Free…of Fake News!
“The reason we launched our A.I. principles is because people were not putting that line in the sand, that they were not saying what’s fair and what’s equitable so we’re like, well we are a big company, we’re going to say it.” – Jen Gennai, Head Of Responsible Innovation, Google
Another document noted Google’s goal to have a “single point of truth” in all their products. They established a “News Ecosystem” mentioning “editorial guidelines” created and controlled internally by Google. The guidelines determine how content is displayed on their website. Basically, most Conservative content is assumed to be from not credible sources, i.e. “fake news.”
Washington is Watching
One concerned Senator, Ted Cruze (R) Texas, decided to get answers directly. He questioned a Google Director, Maggie Stanphill, concerning the Project Veritas report at a June 25 Senate hearing. Google, the owner of video powerhouse Youtube, pulled the Veritas video of the expose from there. It is still available at the Vimeo video website.
While the politicians in DC argue about the effects of near-monopolies on consumer content, the world is in danger. Google, Apple and the few corporations that own the major mainstream media are consolidating power and influence. Banning free speech apps because, even though they have veritable monopolies, they fall back on their rights as private companies to censor. Facebook has billions of users worldwide and prides itself on being a community resource, but not a public one apparently when it comes to free speech. It is the same with all the mega-corps.
Make Free Speech Free Again
Is a 90% monopoly enough to be a public space requiring free speech? 95%? We really want to know. At least make them politically neutral. Nobody is requiring some sort of Fairness Doctrine, where opposing viewpoints are given equal time legally. Just let people speak, without violating the rights of others or advocating/committing crimes. At least in the USA.
This is only the opening volley in a world where big Corporations decide what stories to let you hear. The US First Amendment is getting displaced in favor of Globalist propaganda. Support small, independent news sites like NewRightNetwork and others in order to not be programmed by the left. Know the Truth and It Shall Set You Free…of Fake News!
