GTP in 'The Intercept'

The Intercept previews GTP data in "The Android Administration"

The Google Transparency Project teamed up with journalists at The Intercept to offer a preview of our White House Meetings and Revolving Door data projects.

The story goes behind the data to explore the consequences of Google's unprecedented access to the White House and other government entities, detailing the extent to which the government relies on google for assistance with public infrastructure, monitoring natural disasters and advances the government's foreign policy interests. 

The obvious question that arises is: Can government do its job with respect to regulating Google in the public interest if it owes the company such a debt of gratitude?
