Attorney General Todd Rokita announced yesterday that he investigating Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and Twitter because they "potentially harmed Indiana consumers through business practices that are abusive, deceptive and/or unfair." I hope to see more Attorney General's, politicians and Americans stand up against these monopolies. They have way too much information about everyone as it is but to try to control what we see, think and feel?
“In a free society, few assets are more important to consumers than access to information and the opportunity to express political viewpoints in meaningful forums,” Attorney General Rokita said. “It is potentially harmful and unfair for these companies to manipulate content in ways they do not publicly discuss or that consumers do not fully understand.”
AG Rokita is particularly probing methods by which the companies have limited consumers’ access to certain content — often deleting or obscuring posted material reflecting a politically conservative point of view. He is also investigating alleged actions taken by attorney Vanita Gupta Joe Biden’s nominee to be associate U.S. attorney general to encourage the companies to censor conservative viewpoints.
