    So how did it go? I can't imagine it was any more than House members asking the same questions over and over and not understanding what their staffers wrote for them to ask.

    I'm still waiting on the highlights of this interview, but it sounds like both parties in Congress completely messed up this interview.

    The idiot question award definitely goes to Steve King of Iowa..

    from Wired: "Rep. Steve King (R-IA) asked Pichai why his granddaughter saw negative news about him on her iPhone. "


    Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, the fact that Congress is so technologically inept is a major concern going forward.

    Just add that to the list of things Congress doesn't understand
    • Science
    • Women's bodies
    • Climate
    • Technology

    Also a highlight: When Ted Lieu (D-CA) called compared the Google results from Rep Scalise (R-LA) to the results of the aforementioned Mr. King. Scalise's results were about his book. King's results were about him being a racist.

    Lieu chalked it up to this: "If you want positive search results, do positive things"

    Going to finish watching it later.
    So far it has been “What about privacy”, “Google does not have bias in search - Dems”, “Google has bias in search - GOP”, “How are you handing the Russian interference”, and “Are you tracking me?”.

    Looks more like .... I need to finish watching first,

    I got a kick out of Sundar Pichai confirming today that The Russians!™ stole the 2016 election for an expenditure of US$4700 on advertising on Google and YouTube, overcoming the US$1.4 billion raised and spent on behalf of Hillary Clinton. Talk about doing more with less. They get results. How do I hire The Russians!™?

    Hey come on, dont you know that identity-politics, communism and climate-o-phobia are completely rational, legitimate, mainstream platforms to run on? A bunch of self serving politicians with outstanding speech writers and mega donors told me so. /s

    In all seriousness though, aren’t you glad that a bunch of elitists from wall-street, silly valley, hollywood and the mainstream media can’t determine the outcome of elections?

    Why when you can earn £500 a day as an IT contractor would you become an MP which is a harder job with similar job security and less pay?
