Earlier this week, an interview with Google co-founder Sergey Brin appeared on the Guardian. In his dialogue, Brin talked about threats to the public internet and mentioned government censorship, Apple and Facebook as “very powerful forces” working against internet freedom. Brin responded today on Google + to clarify these statements.

Brin claims his comments were “distorted” in secondary coverage. He says, “the primary threat by far to internet freedom is government filtering of political dissent.” He adds that he has “much admiration for two of the companies we discussed — Apple and Facebook.” He owns several Apple’s products and even used an “Imac” to write his Google + post.
