Leaked video shows Google executives troubled by Trump election

WATCH: Google Execs Bash Trump Supporters, Want To Make Trump Admin 'Blip' In History

For its part, Google denied accusations of liberal bias following the release of the video.

Technology and media analysts say there is little evidence to suggest Google is skewing results for political reasons. Sergey Brin, a Google co-founder, said that he was "deeply offended" by the election of Trump and that his victory was in conflict with numerous company's values.

In the hour of video footage, Brin is shown saying he is "deeply offend [ed]" by Trump's election due to his status as an immigrant, and added that Trump's politics conflict "with many of [Google's] values". "I grew up in India and there had been many things noxious, but it in point of fact became as soon as a democratic nation and now we beget long passed by blueprint of many, many, many hairy moments love this."At one level, Alphabet CFO Ruth Porat looks to be conserving wait on tears when talking about election evening".

Schweizer emphasized that Google is certainly entitled to its worldview and can run the company as it wishes, but it can't continue to insist that it's a neutral platform and therefore immune to the requirements that publishers face under the Communications Decency Act of 1996.

"Google needs to explain why this isn't a threat to the republic", tweeted Brad Parscale, the manager of Trump's 2020 election campaign.

The video serves to exacerbate existing tensions between Republicans and the tech giant (googl).

"At a regularly scheduled all hands meeting, some Google employees and executives expressed their own personal views in the aftermath of a long and divisive election season", the statement to Breitbart reads. Congressional lawmakers slammed the company for failing to send a top executive to testify at a hearing alongside Facebook and Twitter last week.

And this video is being cited as more proof that Google is trying to undermine Trump and silence his supporters.

But they insisted that that nothing in the video suggested that a political bias had influenced the way Google builds or operates its products.

"To the contrary, our products are built for everyone, and we design them with extraordinary care to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without regard to political viewpoint", the statement concluded.

Breitbart says the video was provided by an anonymous source.

Tech firms have begun to play a larger - and more active - role in politics, as Twitter and Facebook have each announced the suspensions of fake accounts aimed at influencing USA politics, as Google and Microsoft have worked to alert campaigns of attempted hacks.

Numerous comments were more nuanced and measured. Eileen Naughton, Google's chief people officer, encouraged employees to respect conservative colleagues.

I think they need stepped on.
