Sen. Hawley Demands Google Explain “Long Pattern Of Censorship” After YouTube Comments Scandal
Google and Beijing have been cozy for quite a while. Google has an Artificial Intelligence lab in China.
Hawley rejected the explanation in a Wednesday letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, calling it part of a “long disturbing pattern” of Google pandering to the CCP in order to curry favor with the Xi regime, and adding that “This kowtowing is unacceptable,” according to the Washington Times.
On Tuesday, Google was busted auto-deleting comments critical of the CCP, including “communist bandit” and “50-cent party” – “the latter term referring to a division of the Chinese Communist Party whose purpose is deflecting criticism fromm the Party by using sockpuppet accounts to spread online propaganda,” reads Hawley’s letter.
