The Daily Mail – Google chief executive Sundar Pichai defended his company’s search practices on Tuesday in the face of questions from lawmakers on allegations of bias against conservatives. The topic came up repeatedly in the three and half the tech executive sat before lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee.
“Our algorithms have no notion of political sentiment,” Pichai said in defense of Google’s search engine, which is the most used in the world. “We approach our work without any political bias,” he noted. Both Republicans and Democrats pushed Pichai on the issue.
