Two Internet Giants Get More Political
Facebook and Google are getting more involved in the political process.
The New York Times reports that Facebook has created a PAC called “FB PAC” so they and their employees can direct money toward the candidates they like.
Google also turned up in the news as they are now making political contributions to Republican groups such as the Republican Governors Association and the Republican State Leadership Committee. This shift makes their involvement appear to be more bipartisan.
