NetChoice Launches TV Ads in Four States

Government Takeover to Air in Montana, South Carolina, Texas, and Wyoming

WASHINGTON – On the heels of the successful Defend America’s Competitive Edge Week of Action in Washington, DC, NetChoice, a trade association committed to making the internet safe for free enterprise and free expression, today announced that the group will air new TV ads called Government Takeover in MontanaSouth CarolinaTexas, and Wyoming to demonstrate the devastating effects current antitrust proposals will have on U.S. consumers and businesses.

The ads will appear on cable and broadcast beginning April 10.

The new ads depict how American innovation has always outpaced the world in growing the most inventive companies that power our economy and way of life. ​​But some leaders in Washington want to put big government in charge of America’s top innovators, while U.S. competition around the world closes the gap. 

“As we gathered with 23 civil society and industry groups for our Week of Action, we heard exactly what the national polls have been telling lawmakers for months – Americans want their government to focus on the unprecedented challenges facing our nation and our communities rather than ill-conceived antitrust proposals that would hurt American businesses, American innovation and American consumers,” said Steve DelBianco, President and CEO of NetChoice.

“We are extending our Week of Action to the states to remind Senators Cruz, Graham, Daines, and Lummis that their job is to champion policies that will help Americans –  not policies that reflect their own personal grudges.”

The launch of the new ads caps off Defend America’s Competitive Edge Week of Action where lawmakers learned about the dangers of several antitrust proposals that would remove important guardrails on antitrust regulators and undermine American antitrust law by weaponizing it against a specific industry or specific companies.
