Whistleblowing

“I’ve just been coding since I was ten, I have a Ph.D., I have five years of experience at Google, and I just know how algorithms are. They don’t write themselves. We write them to make them do what we want them to do.”
Greg Coppola (July 2019)  [1]

In July 2019, Greg Coppola was interviewed by Project Veritas on camera. He stated clearly that he thought Google was clearly exercising political bias in its algorithms. Within 24 hours he had been placed on leave. In August 2019 another Google employee, Zach Vorhies went public with Project Veritas.
