His name is Greg Coppola. Coppola has a Ph.D. in Computer Science and five years of experience working at Google. He reports directly to Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai. He’s also the latest high-level Google employee to step forward and admit that Google is manipulating its search algorithms in Google Search and Google News to favor the Democratic Party.
Yesterday, the amazing James O’Keefe released a stunning video featuring another yet Google insider, Greg Coppola. Unlike the last Google employee who went undercover to out Google and their left-leaning biases, Coppola bravely appeared in the open on camera to reveal what many of us dreaded was true—Google CEO Sundar Pichai is lying, they are manipulating the algorithms to favor the Democratic Party.
Coppola says Google’s bias is undeniable. He told O’Keefe, “I’m very concerned to see big tech and big media to merge essentially with a party—with the Democrat Party.” Coppola told Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe. “I don’t have a smoking gun. I’ve been coding since I was 10, I have a Ph.D. I have five years with Google, and I just know how algorithms are. They don’t write themselves; we write them to do what we want them to do. And…you can use machine learning, but you can get the results of machine learning to get them to come out the way they want them to. It’s just a tool that we control. You know, I look at Search, I look at Google News, and I see Google exec’s go to Congress and say it’s not manipulated, it’s not political, and I’m just so sure that’s not true.”
“Are we going to continue to have elections that mean anything? Are we going to continue to think for ourselves, or are we going to allow the tech companies to decide who wins the elections from now on?” Coppola asks.
Coppola tells O’Keefe, “You know, I look at search, and I look at Google News, and I see what it’s doing, and I see Google executives go to Congress and say that it’s not manipulated. It’s not political. And I’m just so sure that’s not true.”
“I think the big problem we have today is there is an ambiguity about whether tech is neutral or whether it’s biased. I think, as someone with a Ph.D. in Computer Science and five years of working at one of the world’s top computer science companies, I don’t see any doubt that it’s very politically biased,” says the Google senior software engineer who reports directly to their CEO.
Coppola told O’Keefe that anyone who supports “anything other than the Democrats” or “anyone who’s pro-Trump” or “anyone who deviates from what CNN and the New York Times pushes, notices how bad it is.” He continued with his stunning testimony, saying, “You know, Google News is really an aggregator of just a handful of sites, and all of those sites, you know, really are vitriolically against Donald Trump, which I would consider to be, you know, interference in the election.”
O’Keefe reminded him that Google’s CEO testified under oath to Congress that their algorithms are completely unbiased. O’Keefe asked, “Is he lying?” Coppola responded, “I mean, lying’s a strong word, I definitely don’t think it’s true.” He continued to explain how extremely biased Google’s search results are, “Somehow, they put an extreme bias on certain sites. Like, for example, CNN is the most commonly used source in Google News. Twenty percent of all searches for Donald Trump, all results for Donald Trump are from CNN when that’s the entire internet of millions of sites. CNN is a source that Donald Trump and a lot of his supporters would call ‘fake news.’ Someone has to wonder how it got that way.”
He also explains how it wasn’t until after Trump got elected that Google became political, saying that everybody in the tech world started to believe everyone who supported President Trump was “a racist or even a Nazi.”
Here’s the full interview:
Coppola admits that he likes Donald Trump. He claims that a lot of his co-workers know he’s Trump supporter, and he doesn’t care. He says he’s always been intellectually curious and he believes that big tech’s political bias is dangerous and is destroying free thought.
