Biden’s nominees show embrace of progressive views of Big Tech

“I think a lot of people across the country saw candidate Biden as a centrist moderate,” said Carl Szabo, vice president of NetChoice, a coalition with members including Facebook, Google and Amazon. “And it turns out that he is definitely interested in advancing left-wing and progressive politics at all levels of the government, including at the antitrust level.”

A flyer circulated by NetChoice in Congress last week urged senators to oppose Kanter’s nomination, accusing the Biden administration of trying to “con” Republicans into supporting “a progressive advocate, NOT an impartial enforcer” who would “use antitrust enforcement to circumvent Congress” to advance progressive policies.
