Google CEO Sundar Pichai in an email to Google staff on Friday said the company has not and will not bias its search results in favor of any political cause, movement or party, according to The New York Times.
“Recent news stories reference an internal email to suggest that we would compromise the integrity of our Search results for a political end. This is absolutely false,” Pichai wrote in the email, obtained by the Times. “We do not bias our products to favor any political agenda. The trust our users place in us is our greatest asset and we must always protect it.”
The email follows a report from The Wall Street Journal this week that detailed an internal email thread sent among Google employees.
