Source: Google Locks Down Access to Videos of ‘TGIF’ Meetings Following Breitbart Scoop
Breitbart ^ | 9/14/2018 | Allum Bokhari

Posted on 09/14/2018 10:18:58 PM PDT by RightGeek

Google has locked down access to archived recordings of its weekly all-hands “TGIF” meetings after Breitbart News published a video of the company’s dismayed reaction to the defeat of Hillary Clinton. The tech giant holds weekly all-hands meetings known as “TGIF” or “Thank God It’s Friday” (although they’re actually held on Thursdays), in which company executives address questions from employees.

...

A full recording of one of these meetings, conducted just days after the election of Donald Trump in 2016, was anonymously leaked to Breitbart News and was published earlier this week. The video features CEO Sundar Pichai, co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, and VPs Kent Walker and Eileen Naughton dismayed and often emotional reactions to Donald Trump’s victory and the broader rise of populist nationalism. It can be watched in full here.

One of the consequences of Breitbart News’ scoop is that Google has now locked down general employee access to archived recordings of past TGIFs.

“The one negative is that they’ve now locked down access to past TGIF videos, which is inconvenient for a lot of us,” a Google employee told Breitbart News. “The most recent TGIF will still be available to view for a week, but there’s no access to the archive.

...

“They also used to let you livestream TGIF on your work laptops, but they stopped the livestreams after Kate Conger of The NY Times live-tweeted the first TGIF that Google held after the China story broke. Now you have to go to one of the designated rooms on campus to watch TGIF.”

Too late. After watching a few minutes of that, I decided that either we go to the gallows or you guys go to the gallows. This stuff simply has to be brought to an end.

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been challenged by Google when I do searches for Conservative information.

Rather than give me the results for my search, it says my post looks like bot initiated it. Then I have to identify the cells of a photo that have certain objects in them.

Seems like harassment to me.

I prefer recourse to a firing squad. I need the range time.

As regards these tech companies, run almost exclusively by Socialist ‘RATS, they should be broken up using existing anti-trust laws which are more than adequate for the task. Second, they should be categorized as any other 1st Amendment platform, not an open forum, and consequently lose their Section 230 liability protections under the Communications Decency Act. Third, all conservatives who have been banned, suspended, shadow banned, or demonized in any way should sue the panties off the weak-titted SJW snowflakes running the companies.

"The Witch" had all assets of the federal government, directed by Barry Soetoro, including the CIA, NSA, DOJ, FBI, IRS and all alphabet agencies.

They were allied with Google, Facebook, Amazon and virtually all tech and communication companies.

They worked hand in glove with the MSM, 90% of the "News".

They allowed millions of illegal votes.

They controlled what you were allowed to hear.

They threatened, intimidated those who spoke out, often with violence.

They listened to your phone calls.

They read your emails.

They raided your homes and businesses.

They destroyed lives.

Can anyone tell me exactly what Donald Trump and the Russians did to "hack" the Election?

Google isn’t interested in fact finding unless it serves them, I guess.

Quit using Google as you primary search engine. They are the enemy, minimize use.

Are you using a VPN to access the internet?

If you are, then you are sharing an IP address with whomever else is using the same VPN. Suspicious behavior by other users of the VPN could be responsible for the CAPTCHA challenge you are seeing.

From time to time, I use VPNBook, a free VPN provider. I had been using one of their Canadian servers (appears to Google to be in India, LOL) without problems. Then, out of the blue, I started getting CAPTCHA challenges when doing Google searches while routed through the VPN. So, I switched to VPNBook's German server, and the problem went away. (I could have simply closed the VPN, but that would have been admitting defeat.)
