The following is a transcript I made of the blockbuster testimony made last week by Dr Robert Epstein before the Senate about Google’s search manipulation and its impact on elections:
I am Dr. Robert Epstein. The most important thing for you to know about me is that I’m the father of five wonderful children. As it happens, I’m also a research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology.
I have been Center, Center-Left my whole adult life but I value my country and Democracy more than I value any party or candidate. That is why I’m speaking out today. I’m here to explain why Googleposes a serious threat to Democracy, how monitoring systems can protect us from companies like Google and how Congress can immediately end Google’s worldwide monopoly on search.
