GOOGLE, ARE YOU MY BIG BROTHER?

Google, DON’T BE EVIL.

This avatar-style animation video was created by our newest author, Jamie Court, and his colleagues at CONSUMER WATCHDOG, to draw attention to Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s lack of regard for our online privacy. This video is playing 36 times per day, on a jumbotron in Times Square — the most highly-trafficked public square in the nation. Schmidt is the the guy who said, “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.” TAKE A PAGE OUT OF JAMIE’S BOOK: THE PROGRESSIVE’S GUIDE TO RAISING HELL will teach you how to speak truth to power, and keep the big dogs honest, because they’re not out for you and me. Don’t drink the cool aid, don’t eat the ice cream!!!!
