Activist group Project Veritas has released a video of an alleged Google employee telling them that the search engine is ‘playing God’ in the US election. A member of Project Veritas is heard discussing Google’s role in the current election with a man who they claim is Google Cloud Technical Program Manager Ritesh Lakhkar.
Lakhkar’s LinkedIn page states he’s worked at Google since May 2018. ‘It’s skewed by the owners or the drivers of the algorithm,’ he says, although he doesn’t provide any evidence. The disgruntled Lakhar is heard lamenting what he believes is the left-leaning politics of the tech giant, claiming he struggles with the company culture ‘morally and ethically.’ He also claims Google is outsourcing jobs to China.
