Google: CPAC is a “Sideshow Circus”; Conservatives Should be “Steered”

According to the latest release of leaked audio files from internal Google meetings, the Internet search engine is moving on from just online censorship of conservatives to on-the-ground operations to influence them in a more liberal direction. In the recordings, Adam Kovacevich, Google’s senior director of U.S. public policy, describes the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) as a “sideshow Circus.” He then goes on to defend Google’s sponsorship of it as an attempt to “steer” the conservative movement “away from nationalistic and incendiary comments.” Read more…

Google’s senior director of U.S. public policy, Adam Kovacevich appeared to describe the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) as a “sideshow Circus,” in a leaked audio recording in which he also argued that Google should remain a sponsor of the conference to “steer” the conservative movement “away from nationalistic and incendiary comments.”

The comments came to light in leaked audio files allegedly of a company-wide meeting at Google, part of which is now exclusively reported by Breitbart News. Another part of the transcript was released last Friday on Tucker Carlson Tonight, while further snippets revealing Google’s funding of establishment conservative think-tanks were published by the left-leaning tech magazine Wired in December.

The alleged meeting took place in the wake of Google’s sponsorship of CPAC in 2018, which triggered an internal rebellion from left-wing employees of the tech giant. Breitbart News exclusively reported on the revolt at the time, in which radical left-wingers inside Google accused CPAC of “ethno-nationalism” and “hate.”
