Establishment ‘Conservative’ Orgs Join Hands with Google to Protect Tech Monopolies

Published

Beltway legacy conservative think tanks and organizations have now joined hands with search behemoth Google to protect the monopolies of massive Silicon Valley tech companies, according to a report from Wired quoting leaked audio from an internal company meeting.

In light of recent criticism of big tech companies from right-of-center and conservative circles, it seems Google is seeking to make inroads with right-leaning Americans by appealing to establishment conservative publications such as National Review, and the neoconservative think tank American Enterprise Institute.

In Wired’s leaked audio, Google’s US Director of Public Policy, Adam Kovacevich, spoke of the company’s desire to improve its public image on the American political right.

I think one of the directives we’ve gotten very clearly from Sundar [Pichai, Google’s CEO], his leadership is to build deeper relationships with conservatives. I think we’ve recognized that the company is generally seen as liberal by policymakers.

Despite frequently claiming to be “unbiased,” Google has indeed acquired a reputation for staunch corporate leftism in many conservative circles. Employees of the company were revealed as advocates for deplatforming content creators and publishers deemed inconvenient to the political left in the aftermath of the 2016 Presidential election.

Kovacevich would go on to describe the company’s successful PR efforts in regards to the American Enterprise Institute, when speaking about an effort to counter a New York Times article that suggested breaking up Google.

Just to give you an example, last weekend The New York Times Magazine cover story was all about breaking up Google. Among the people who wrote op-eds and blog posts rebutting that Times piece were two conservative think-tank officials who we work with closely—one from the American Enterprise Institute and one from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, who both attended [the reception].”

Kovacevich went on to recognize that many of the company’s liberal and progressive employees were unhappy that Google had been an official sponsor of CPAC- rationalizing the sponsorship by describing it as an essential element of Google’s influence operations targeting conservatives.

Google’s attempt to woo conservatives also seems to have been effective enough to get an article from a Google-funded think tank published by National Review, pushing back against calls on the right to recognize Google as a monopoly liable to anti-trust enforcement.

Google Engineer Admits to Company’s Political Censorship, Election Interference in New Project Veritas Sting #ExposeGoogle

Busted.

A Google engineer admits that the tech monopoly is favoring Democrats and seeking to harm President Donald Trump’s electoral prospects in a new sting video released by Project Veritas on Monday.

Ritesh Lakhar, a Technical Program Manager for the California search engine company, admits that Google is seeking to “play God” by controlling the free flow of political information through its platforms.

He openly admits that Google is clamping down on conservative content that is amenable to the electoral prospects of Donald Trump, while seeking to promote Joe Biden. It’s no mere coincidence that the first search results for ‘Donald Trump’ come back with negative results, according to Lakhar.

If Trump says something… Misinformation, you’re going to delete that because it’s illegal under whatever pretext. And if a Democratic leader says that, then you’re gonna leave it like that.

I disagree with the corporations playing God and taking away freedom of speech on both sides, basically.

Lakhar goes on to speak of his moral reservations to engaging in Google’s job outsourcing programs, sending American jobs to China.

I can’t keep doing this. Go and teach Chinese people how to do American jobs and come back and get survived on the way. Morally and ethically I disagree… I feel suffocated at Google.

Tech companies such as Twitter, Google and Facebook have implemented a level of political censorship never before seen in the history of the United States in the runup to the 2020 presidential election. It’s time for a regulatory standard that treats these monopolies as utilities, and ensures access to the digital public square for all.
