The level of hypocrisy at the House Judiciary Committee’s grilling of Google CEO Sundar Pichai yesterday was amazing. Committee members and staffers probably use Google in their day jobs, 100 times a day. These men and women, who accept funds from any and every influencer group in the country (both sides of the aisle) have the audacity to ask Mr. Pichai, about selling a little date to fund a free tool the size and scope of Google is preposterous!
Of course Google will push the boundaries. It would be unAmerican not to. But to bandy about the word of “distrust” and “mistrust” for a digital utility that is trusted more than any other on the planet is ludicrous. America loves it’s Google. Billions of times a day.
When embarrassed by the probes concerning public trust does Google publicly threaten to shut down its engine? No. It listens, answers logically, unemotionally and learns.
Now, where should I send my donation to your campaign Mr. McCarthy, house majority leader? As if.
