Google is claiming they aren't responsible for what their user's upload to their platform or what the search engine picks up. Meanwhile, they specify what content the platform shows to others. Aka, they are manipulating the search algorithms to show what they want. This isn't too surprising except it is being used to counter free speech. Those who don't support the agenda get "de-boosted" or demonetized. There's financial incentive to support the agenda: More views + ad revenue = income stream.
Alphabet has also shown political bias in favor of the democratic party. In Florida it was predicted that Hispanics would vote for Hilary. Google used their position to encourage Hispanics to vote in Florida. It worked, minority votes were 25% higher than predicted. It failed because they voted for Trump. Internal e-mails show the management telling employees that although they fell short of their overall goal, they should take heart that more people voted. They just need to refine the process.
It has anti-trust lawsuit written all over it. Arguably Zachary Vorhies should have spoken with a prosecuting attorney before leaving the company. That way they could have served a search warrant and collaborated the evidence with google servers. I suspect much of the upcoming court case to be, "did this document exist?" With google scrambling to say it's a fake.
Understandably, Vorhies probably didn't know what attorney he could trust. Going public early was a smart move once google played the 'crazy' card, aka wellness check. It showed that google wasn't pulling punches and that time wasn't on Vorhies side.
