Veritas has released a video of Greg Coppola, who has been a senior software engineer at Google since 2014 talks on camera about Google’s efforts to manipulate the results of the 2016 election (although he has already been put on administrative leave).
While Democrats have been wailing about Russian collusion, it turns out that it was Google and the Clinton campaign that was colluding to throw the election. Alphabet, Google’s parent company was Hillary Clinton’s number one financial doner. Researchers are claiming that a minimum of 2.6, and upwards of 16 million votes were swung in Clinton’s favor by Google.
Coppola is a PhD in computer science from Scotland’s University of Edinburgh. He is a very credible witness.
According to Coppola, it’s “ridiculous” to say there’s no political bias at Google. “I think everyone who supports anything other than the Democrats,” says Coppola, “anyone who’s pro-Trump or in any way deviates from what CNN and The New York Times are pushing, notices how bad it is.”
During the 2016 election, “the angle that the Democrats and the media took was that anyone who liked Donald Trump was a racist … And that got picked up everywhere. I mean, every tech company, everybody in New York, everybody in the field of computer science basically believed that.”
This is a very disturbing video:
Coppola says, those beliefs got expressed in algorithms, over which Google employees have complete control. “They don’t write themselves. We write them to do what we want them to do.”
He is also dubious about his bosses testimony to Congress where they said Google’s content is not politically biased. “I’m just so sure that’s not true”.
Coppola understands algorithms and has become increasingly concerned that in order for us “to have a democracy going forward” (Coppola’s words), Big Tech companies must be politically neutral, and Google is not.
When I testified before Congress on July 16, I reported some disturbing numbers that flow from the scientific research and monitoring projects I’ve been conducting in recent years.
Coppola confirms what many already knew. Robert Epstein is senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology He reported that bias in Google search results likely shifted at least 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton in 2016 with no one knowing and without leaving a paper trail; that Google’s “Go Vote” reminder on Election Day in 2018 gave Democrats at least 800,000 more votes than it gave Republicans; that bias in Google search results may have shifted upwards of 78.2 million votes (spread across hundreds of state and regional races) to Democrats in the 2018 election; and that if Big Tech companies all favor the same presidential candidate in 2020, they could conceivably shift 15 million votes to that candidate — again, with no one knowing and without leaving a paper trail.
