Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) executives called Trump voters ‘extremists’
Video of an internal Google meeting shows the company’s top officials talking about using AI to fight populism and “low-information voters” in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 US presidential election.
The 1-hour “confidential, for internal use only” video was posted by Breitbart on Wednesday. It has gained traction online, and is cited by pro-Trump commentators as yet another proof of the Silicon Valley’s bias towards conservatives.
It shows a meeting of the company’s executives with rattled staff members shortly after the 2016 presidential election.
“Myself as an immigrant and a refugee, I certainly find this election deeply offensive and I know many of you do too,” Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin says in the opening minutes of the video, before admitting that “many people apparently don’t share the values that we have.”
