A perceived enemy of Big Tech was just confirmed to the FTC, and the vote wasn’t close

NetChoice, a trade group whose members include large tech companies such as Amazon, said it was disheartened by the vote in her favor.

“Lina Khan’s antitrust activism detracts from the Federal Trade Commission’s reputation as an impartial body that enforces the law in a nondiscriminatory fashion,” Carl Szabo, NetChoice’s vice president and general counsel, said in a statement.

“Khan has a strong career in persuading the American left of her proposed reforms to antitrust law, but the job of an FTC commissioner is to enforce antitrust laws as they are, not as the commissioner wishes they would be,” he said.
