The hearing with Google Chef Executive, Sundar Pichai is expected to postpone for next week. The US House Judiciary Committee is likely to put off the hearing until next week. The Hearing is regarding the Alphabet Inc unit’s social media practices. This postpones is due to the funeral of former President George HW Bush.
Sundar Pichai had agreed to testify before the panel over Republican concerns that the company is biased against traditionalists after it skipped a high-profile Senate hearing. Google has denied it is biased toward conservatives.
The hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday, the same day at the National Cathedral in Washington a state funeral will be held for Bush.
In an interview with Fox News, Goodlatte said that he is expecting the hearing to be rescheduled for next week. According to him, the hearing is very important to occur to get a clarification from Google’s end.
In addition to queries about possible political prejudice, lawmakers may also examine Google’s potential investments in China. Google earlier told US lawmakers it was considering options to offer additional services in China, but declined to share detail plans because of the Chinese restriction.
The Company has to face a lot of criticism after reports. Google is suspected to re-enter China’s search engine market and would comply with its internet censorship and surveillance policies. The report has hampered the imagine of Google a lot, and so the hearing is very essential to get the correct detail after this report.
Google, on the other hand, is not will to say anything until Sundar Pichai faces the hearing. It is expected to get some more details on this report soon, but one thing is sure that this report of Google trying to re-enter the china’s search engine market is not expected from Google.
