Antitrust Hearings on the Hill

Americans for Prosperity’s Billy Easley said the committee should “avoid creating a political platform for aggrieved industries and companies to complain about their competitors.” And Carl Szabo of e-commerce trade group NetChoice blasted the hearing as “an attack on social media by big media companies upset that they no longer control our news and views.” Committee leaders, however, are standing by the session. “This is not, from my perspective, a beat-up of any one particular industry,” House Judiciary ranking member Doug Collins (R-Ga.) told Cristiano, adding that the hearing will explore “a real concern that’s being discussed out in the world.”
