BIG LEAGUE: Department of Justice Unveils Antitrust Review of Big Tech Companies

The Department of Justice is finally moving against big tech.



Department of Justice Antitrust Big Tech

The Department of Justice has announced a broad antitrust review of big tech giants likely including Facebook, Google parent company Alphabet, and Amazon, in a move suggesting President Donald Trump’s administration is taking the threats posed by social media and big tech companies seriously.

Yesterday evening it was announced that the Department of Justice would be beginning its review of major big tech companies, and though none were specifically named, it is likely they will examine the behavior of big tech platforms that appear to collude to prevent individuals and organizations considered conservative or populist off their platforms, and prevent new competitors from competing.

From the Department of Justice press release:

The Department of Justice announced today that the Department’s Antitrust Division is reviewing whether and how market-leading online platforms have achieved market power and are engaging in practices that have reduced competition, stifled innovation, or otherwise harmed consumers.

The Department’s review will consider the widespread concerns that consumers, businesses, and entrepreneurs have expressed about search, social media, and some retail services online. The Department’s Antitrust Division is conferring with and seeking information from the public, including industry participants who have direct insight into competition in online platforms, as well as others.

This comes after Project Veritas exposed how Google is able to influence political elections, including President Trump’s 2020 reelection, and shape narratives by manipulating its search results, as Big League Politics reported. After Project Veritas exposed Google’s election interference, and how the company instructs its employees to protest right wing policies, YouTube, owned by Google, banned the Project Veritas video from its platform.

Big League Politics reported:

Earlier today, whistle-blower James O’Keefe of Project Veritas released a bombshell video exposing Google’s manipulation of algorithms in an attempt to prevent Donald Trump from winning re-election in 2020.

That video can no longer be seen on YouTube, which is owned by Google. They are trying to cover-up the exposé after getting caught red handed committing thought control and electoral manipulation.

Backup links to the video can be found on Vimeo and BitChute, but YouTube attempting to censor the video just shows that Google has something to hide.

Jen Gennai, the Google Responsible Innovation Head, was forced to respond to the video earlier today in a post on Medium where she admitted that “Project Veritas got me. Well done.”

Following this, Twitter temporarily suspended Project Veritas from its platform, in what some view as an attempt to protect Google from negative press.

Additionally, as rumors swirl about President Trump joining the new social media platform Parler, Apple threatened the app with removal from its app store if Parler refused to comply with Apple’s internal policies regarding what is considered politically incorrect hate speech.

Big League Politics reported:

John Matze, the founder of the pro-free speech social network Parler, revealed on the platform that Apple contacted him to demand he censor “offensive” speech from the website or the big tech platform will remove Parler’s app from its App Store. 

Matze revealed on his Parler account that he was threatened with the deletion of his smartphone app if his company does not change its Community Guidelines and immediately begin removing content Apple considers “offensive.” When Matze flatly refused to comply with the tech giant’s demands, Apple prevented the Parler app from sending publisher updates of the app to users.

According to Assistant Attorney General Makan Dalrahim of the Antitrust Division, “Without the discipline of meaningful market-based competition, digital platforms may act in ways that are not responsive to consumer demands.” Dalrahim went on, “The Department’s antitrust review will explore these important issues.”

Big League Politics will track the progress of this investigation and what ramifications it may have for the tech giants.
