GOOGLE CEO SET TO BE GRILLED: Embattled Google CEO Sundar Pichai, amid allegations of anti-conservative bias and privacy violations on the platform, plans to tell the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that his company is no haven for political bias ... "I lead this company without political bias and work to ensure that our products continue to operate that way," Pichai will tell the committee, according to a copy of his prepared remarks. "To do otherwise would go against our core principles and our business interests. We are a company that provides platforms for diverse perspectives and opinions—and we have no shortage of them among our own employees."
Pichai met privately with GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill in September to discuss allegations of anti-conservative bias and concerns about the firm’s re-entry into China and privacy issues. - Reported by Matt Richardson (@MRichardson713 on Twitter)and Christopher Carbone (@christocarbone on Twitter)
