State AGs Unveil Sweeping Anti-Trust Probe Against Google

In the latest legal push that could ultimately result in the break-up of one of the world's largest tech firms, a bipartisan group of more than 40 state attorneys general, led by Texas's Ken Paxton, will unveil a sweeping anti-trust investigation against Google parent Alphabet Inc.

The anti-trust investigation, which was previewed late last week in a leak to the Wall Street Journal, aims to hold Alphabet accountable for the extreme concentration in the US technology industry. Specifically, the AG's case will focus on Google's influence in search and the digital advertising market, and whether the Silicon Valley giant's overweening influence harms rivals and consumers.

Nearly all of the states are participating in the investigation against Google, and/or a similar anti-trust investigation against Facebook. One notable exception: California isn't participating in either suit

1. I am shocked California isn't involved NOT.

Liberals hate large companies and normmaly would cheer on this type of thing. They love their propaganda machines though so these monopolies are just fine and dandy. I know they are not directly talking about the liberal partisan attacks they do every day on conservatives or anyone who isn't a 100% cult member of the left.

3. The democrat politicians are on their knees to silicone valley waiting in line for their turn.

Ask them about the pot laws and how it got to be that when it was legalized all of the big pharmacy companies got to grow and all of the small growers got starved out.

The rich get richer when the cali democrat politicians are involved.
