Google conspiring politically

What do you think of the newly leaked videos for Google execs trying to "prevent a 2020 Trump situation" through "algorithmic fairness"?

I'm totally against Trump and his administration but I feel Google has crossed the line here

    Irrespective of who you are / what you do, I feel it's ironic for this concern to be raised by Facebook (employee).

    (Legit concern though)

      OP
      I'm not a fan of the role Facebook played in the Trump situation of 2016. In their defense, they were negligent but non malicious in receiving foreign ad money.

      On the other hand, I'm sure they'd do it again to satisfy ads growth metrics.

      Either way, I am not proud of the company I work for.

    I don’t get it. Why are people upset?
    Google seems to be trying to prevent Cambridge analytica and facebook happening again.
    Whomever disagrees, please explain.

      I don't want trump to win in 2020, but how is changing the algorithm to unfavor one side not meddling

      What side? Are you saying that conservatives can only win elections if misinformation appears at the top of searches?

      I need to watch the whole 25 min video now to figure out exactly what they are doing. Lol

      EllisDee25 I'm saying that Google has become increasingly untrustworthy and has proven it would undermine morality for the highest bid. For a company with monopolies in multiple markets why shouldn't its power be checked?
      If Trump pays Google 500 million dollars like he did with Zuck to swing the election again would you be ok with that?

      Duckduckgogo is a proxy for Bing. You did not know? Do you really think a small company can actually build a search engine?

    I mean even if you hate Trump, you should realize the threat of one company controlling 2 of the biggest search engines (Google search and YouTube search) and using them for political gain. Because I assure you one day they’ll be gunning for your preferred candidate or promoting an agenda that you dislike.

      Except exposing Trump lies is not political gain. It's truth. Sorry if the reality does not fit your bias.

    If google wasn’t a monopoly this would be unfortunate but inconsequential. However, since it’s a monopoly this needs to be dealt with.

    Fake videos from known discredited sources don't count.

      Not discredited. There was an attempt to discredit them that was overruled in court.
