Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who infamously lied to Congress about Google's "manual" interventions with user search results, will reportedly take Page's former role, making him the CEO of both Google and Alphabet at the same time.
While Page and Brin will stay on as shareholders and members of Alphabet's Board of Directors, Pichai will be the new head of, well, everything related to Google. But this doesn't necessarily clear Page and Brin of running what critics claim is "top-down control" over Google search results, and specifically political search results.
Most recently, Google announced that it would be banning upwards of 300 different advertisements put out by the Donald Trump campaign for the 2020 presidency, claiming that the ads violate its internal policies. The Trump campaign has publicly responded by claiming that Google is "muzzling" political speech to thwart the upcoming election.
In their departure letter, Page and Brin admitted that Google is not a "conventional company," adding that Google's "evolution as a privately held company" means that Google has had to be managed "differently."
They still insist, however, just as Pichai does, that Google provides "unbiased, accurate and free access to information for those who rely on us all around the world."
"We believe those central tenets are still true today," the duo further wrote about Google and Alphabet. "Creativity and challenge remain as ever-present as before, if not more so, and are increasingly applied to a variety of fields such as machine learning, energy efficiency and transportation."
Alphabet, in case you're unaware, has only existed since 2015. It was created as part of Google's unveiling of other new technologies, including Waymo driverless cars, which Page and Brin claim are already successfully driving around "hundreds of Phoenix residents."
Alphabet has also unveiled Wing, which Page and Brin describe as "the first drone company to make commercial deliveries to consumers in the US," as well as Verily Life Sciences, a sister company of Google that we reported released more than 20 million genetically modified (GMO) mosquitoes into the wild back in 2017.
We also saw Google, via Alphabet, launch its own biotechnology company under the name of Calico back in 2013. Headed by Art Levinson, chairman of Genentech, Calico represents Google's attempt at focusing "on health and well-being, in particular the challenge of aging and associated diseases," according to Page.
Google also recently announced that it's getting into the medical records business as part of an Orwellian program known as "Project Nightingale."
With the help of a medical group known as Ascension, Google is reportedly amassing the medical records of tens of millions of patients across 21 states, all of which will be compiled into Google's own private databases, where artificial intelligence (AI) systems will make recommendations to patients about treatments, drug regimens and other protocols.
"Before they were Alphabet, Larry and Sergey touted, 'Don't be evil' as part of their company mission," wrote one Breitbart News commenter in response to the news. "Then (they) hired Eric 'Squirrel Boy' Schmidt as CEO. The IG report is about to be released and it'll be interesting to see where these three bozos end up."
