More than 40 states to join antitrust lawsuit against Facebook: Report; Bokhari: ‘Political Elites Did Nothing While Big Tech Subverted Democracy’

More than 40 states to join antitrust lawsuit against Facebook: Report
More than 40 states apparently plan to sign on to a New York-led antitrust lawsuit against Facebook.

Some of those purchases include Instagram in 2012 and WhatsApp in 2014.
Facebook has also faced increased pressure in Congress from both sides of the aisle in recent years, with Democrats accusing the company of being a platform for fake and misleading information, while Republicans have charged that the company censors conservative views.
Former Federal Trade Commission Chairman William Kovacic said that the bipartisan nature of the complaints against tech giants in recent years should give authorities the confidence to carry out antitrust investigations. --->READ MORE HERE

Bokhari told Kelly that nothing was done to address the Big Tech problem because political elites and the deep state benefit from Silicon Valley censorship.
Calling the book “maybe one all should have read” before the election, Kelly asked if Bokhari had a “crystal ball” that predicted Big Tech’s election interference. --->READ MORE HERE
