How very official this is

The world’s biggest tech companies must not be allowed to compete with rival businesses on their own platforms and may even need to be broken up, an investigation from US politicians has concluded.

Gosh!

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee’s antitrust panel published a series of proposals to curb the monopoly power of Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook. It follows a probe into the tech giants that lasted more than a year.

Ah. Not all that official then. Sorta equivalent to the Labour members, and Labour members only, of the Select Committee on Employment saying that unions are lovely.

  1. You would imagine the dems would be happy to leave them be. After all, all four of them are beyond woke and doing the dems work for them.

    Let me correct that a little:

    Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee’s antitrust panel published a series of proposals to curb the monopoly power of Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook and prevent the rise of anyone like Trump again

  3. What Gunker said. I can only assume the Lefts general hatred of business and profits is blinding them to the obvious fact that the large internet giants have been captured by the woke and are doing the Left’s work for them.

    Breaking them up would undoubtedly reverse that trend, companies that are competing madly for business don’t have time for wokeness. As ever its a case of stand well back when your enemy is making fundamental mistakes………….

  4. But people use, say Facebook because everybody else uses Facebook. Do they really want to go back to pre-1900 telephones where you had to have three telephones if you wanted to be able to contact everybody in town?

    If they split Facebook up, people would migrate to the BabyFace that the people they wanted to commincate with were using, and gradually everybody would migrate to the one BabyFace that all their friends had migrated to, so replicating the current situation.

  5. The ‘breaking up’ is a false dichotomy. There are other things that can be done. Like congress can define the limits of Section 230 protections. But that would require actual work. And reduce the incomes of their big tech donors.

    Evidently some Democrats on the House Judiciary need their campaign finances spruced up via completely spontaneous, above board and not at all quid quo pro donations from the officers and/or owners of Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook.

    Trump proposed something along those lines, so obviously the Dems could never run with that idea.
