Google has enhanced the level of political transparency in U.S., according PoliticsOnline16. November 2009 – 10:41 by Eric Legale
Caitlin Morrissey, PoliticsOnline.com editor, explains in this video how the web’s oldest political Internet company selects during the last ten years the “10 Who Are Changing the World of Internet and Politics”. This year, the International e-Democracy Award was given by Phil Noble, founder of PoliticsOnline, to Peter Greenberger, head of the Google division in charge of political advertising. The online tools that Google offers (YouTube, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google Ads) were heavily used over the course of the recent American presidential campaign. Democratic candidate Barack Obama spent 7.5 million dollars integrating these tools into his campaign strategy. Peter Greenberger informs and educates policy makers and administration officials regarding the use of these tools in order to make the political process more accessible to ordinary citizens.
According PoliticsOnline, Peter Greenberger and his team have played a key role in enhancing transparency and democracy in the United States, which significantly change the worldview of politics among citizens.
