I think it's funny that now they are worried about this and monopolistic power of some companies.
Where have they been as the meat packing, agriscience, phone and other industries have been consolidated into just a few mega companies.
They have brought law suits and reigned down legislation on those industries when companies "tried" to monopolize. But with "technolongy" and Section 230.... they gave these companies protections, tax benefits, grants to move forwards, etc. Now those companies are monopolizing or were not getting treated the same as the ones you listed.
BTW... with the businesses or industries you listed.... how many of them are trying to control information, news, speech, etc??? NONE OF THEM.
Is funny you go right to "whataboutism" instead of acknowledging the problem.
If you dont think they crack down... look at the whole 5G stuff. Look at how they did crack down on cell phone companies from "merging".... look how they regulated the beer industry. Pretty much INBEV owns budwieser, miller, and I believe Coors..... but yet they put regulations on them so they can't "inflate" prices, cut out the other brands, etc. But this is a different subject....
But this is a huge issue with Big Tech.... and like I keep saying... They all know there is an issue it is just that they dont agree on what to do or "when" to do it. One side didn't want to do anything before an election because of certain reasons.... that we dont know.
BTW.... anyone see the interview with I believe 60 Mins.... where Pelosi goes off and says... SHE DIDNT HOLD UP AID for the people... but then in the next breathe says she did hold up aid.
