Alex Jones heckles Google CEO heading into House hearing

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones heckled Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Tuesday as the tech executive made his way to a House committee hearing on alleged political bias in Silicon Valley.

Jones followed Pichai down the hallway as Pichai made his way to the House Judiciary Committee hearing, yelling that the CEO had “lied to Congress.”

Tech executives have disputed those claims, with Pichai saying in his written testimony that he runs Google “without political bias and work to ensure that our products continue to operate that way.”

Stone, who was suspended from Twitter last year after a string of vulgar tweets directed toward reporters, told The Hill on Tuesday that he believes he has been censored by Google as well.

He said he believes the tech companies are engaged in “an effort to limit my ability to defend myself, and that’s rather important to me.”

Stone asserted that during a Google News search for his name, an article about his net worth will appear but not one contesting claims by some Democrats that Stone perjured himself during congressional testimony.
