Since Project Veritas exposed Google's bias against conservatives and President Donald Trump, employees at Google are doing everything in their power to bury what took place.
Project Veritas originally posted their video expose on YouTube, which is also owned by Google. Not surprisingly, the tech giant pulled the video, forcing Project Veritas to share the video on Vimeo, another video hosting website.
The greatest indictment of US journalism in a generation: Tech sources distrusted MSM, came to PV. Google responded TWICE. Congress holding hearings. Youtube parent Co. took down report as it lit up the internet — not a single American MSM journo has been assigned to this story. pic.twitter.com/9SDrZMR3LK— James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) June 25, 2019
The Google employee featured in the investigation's interview, Jen Gennai, decided to delete her Twitter account and make her Instagram private.
NEW: Google executive Jen Gennai @gennai_jen, who said Congress "can pressure us but we're not changing," has deleted her Twitter account. Her Instagram is private, too; it wasn’t before. Google engineer @GauravGite3 has deleted his Facebook. pic.twitter.com/24Qx78rpaZ— James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) June 24, 2019
But she also wrote a long post on Medium, talking about how Project Veritas "baited" her.
Project Veritas has edited the video to make it seem that I am a powerful executive who was confirming that Google is working to alter the 2020 election. On both counts, this is absolute, unadulterated nonsense, of course. In a casual restaurant setting, I was explaining how Google’s Trust and Safety team (a team I used to work on) is working to help prevent the types of online foreign interference that happened in 2016. Google has been very public about the work that our teams have done since 2016 on this, so it’s hardly a revelation.
The video then goes on to stitch together a series of debunked conspiracy theories about our search results, and our other products. Google has repeatedly been clear that it works to be a trustworthy source of information, without regard to political viewpoint. In fact, Google has no notion of political ideology in its rankings. And everything I have seen backs this up. Our CEO has said ”We do not bias our products to favor any political agenda.” He’s somewhat more powerful and authoritative than me.
But despite what the video may have you believe, I’m not involved in any of these products, just like I’m not involved in any of the other topics Project Veritas baited me into discussing (whether it’s antitrust, Congress, or the dozens of other topics that didn’t appear in the video, on which I presumably didn’t say anything that could be twisted to their advantage). I was having a casual chat with someone at a restaurant and used some imprecise language. Project Veritas got me. Well done.
If this isn't taking place, why is Google going deleting Project Veritas' video? If this isn't taking place, then why did Gennai hide from public scrutiny? She wouldn't be afraid to deal with people's questions on social media. If this isn't taking place then why do internal emails show a key Google employee calling various conservatives "Nazis?"
Google knows they were in the wrong and they're trying to sweep this under the rug. Conservatives aren't letting this go though. This is just the beginning.
