Google CEO Sundar Pichai will testify before the House Judiciary Committee in November, following the midterm elections. He met with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and other senior Republicans Friday to discuss accusations that Google is biased against conservatives (a charge the company has denied). McCarthy told Reuters that Pichai had agreed to appear before the committee.
The November hearing will cover issues including the bias allegations, privacy and China — perhaps related to the rumored censored version of Google’s search engine for that country. Republicans are also seeking answers from Pichai over how Google handles matters related to countries that have violated human rights and the way in which it classifies news and opinion.
