Congressional Report Strikes At Monopoly Power Of Big Tech



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Jessica J. González about the monopoly of Big Tech.

Amid the crisis in the White House with the super-spread of the coronavirus through the top echelons of government, a massive Congressional report on the big four tech companies got little notice. The Antitrust Subcommittee of the House Judiciary committee released the 450-page report that, among other things, called out Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon for their monopoly business practices. The report goes further in calling for the companies to limit their acquisitions and even break up into smaller entities.

Read the Congressional subcommittee report called ‘Investigation of Competition in Digital Markets,’ HERE and read the Free Press’ essay ‘Media 2070: An Invitation to Dream Up Media Reparations,” HERE.

Jessica J. González, Co-CEO of Free Press and co-Founder of Change The Terms, an organization dedicated to “reducing hate in tech.”
