I just read an article about Julian Assange and Google.
According to Assange, Google is one of the top-spending Washington lobbyists (that's true. Here's a list: https://www.opensecrets.org...). He also lists ways that Google has worked with the NSA. Eric Schmidt says that Google "never collaborated with the NSA" and he says that Assange is "paranoid".
So interesting. Here's the transcript of a very long interview between Assange and Schmidt:
It seems to me obvious that Google is political. It has to be. I was just wondering what other people thought about this. Because yes, Google has enormous power over information and it really matters if they are political in this way.
