Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday grilled Google UX Director Maggie Stanphill about Project Veritas’ recent investigation into the tech company’s desire to stifle conservatives. A whistleblower stepped forward to make people aware of Google’s plans to affect the outcome of the 2020 elections and “prevent” the next “Trump situation.”
The video features Google’s Head of Responsible Innovation, Jen Gennai, talking about those very moves. According to Project Veritas, Gennai’s department “monitors and evaluates the responsible implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better, it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation. It’s like a small company cannot do that,” Gennai said in undercover footage.
“A lot of Americans have concerns that big tech media companies and Google in particular, are engagedin political censorship and bias,” Cruz told Stanphill. “As you know, Google enjoys a special from liability under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. The predicate for that immunity was that Google and other big tech media companies would be neutral public fora. Does Google consider itself a neutral public forum?”
“Thank you, senator, yes it does,” Stanphill replied.
Cruz asked Stanphill about the latest Project Veritas video.
“Are you familiar with a report that was released yesterday from [Project] Veritas that included a whistleblower from within Google that included videos from a senior executive at Google that included documents that are reportedly internal PowerPoint documents from Google?” Cruz asked.
“Yes, I heard about that report in industry news,” answered Stanphill.
“Have you seen the report?” Cruz asked.
“No, I have not,” she said.
Cruz asked if Stanphill agreed with Gennai’s statement about Google.
“No, sir, I don’t think that’s Google’s job and we build for everyone, including every single religious belief, every single demographic, every single region and certainly every political affiliation,” Stanphill replied.
Cruz also grilled Stanphill about Google leadership’s political leanings, asking of she knew of a single senior Google executive that voted for Trump in 2016.
“I definitely don’t know,” she answered.
.@tedcruz: Of the senior executives at Google, do you know a single one that voted for Donald Trump?
Google: I don’t know.
Cruz: In 2016, Google workers gave @HillaryClinton $1.315 Mil. Any idea what they gave Trump?
Cruz: Zero. not a penny. pic.twitter.com/1sPEIh5PJX
