Biden names Lina Khan, a big-tech critic, as FTC chair

Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel at NetChoice, a tech industry lobbying group, said after the Senate vote that Khan would make the independent agency more political.

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