It’s no secret that Google has a left-leaning corporate identity but it might well be in hot water for operating against the principles of the free market.
According to Washington Examiner, “Justice Department and some state attorneys general are reportedly likely to file antitrust lawsuits against Google focused on how it has used its search dominance in the online advertising business.”
Led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the DOJ and other state AGs will likely file the case against the tech giant in the fall.
The investigation, according to Washington Examiner, focused on “allegedly anti-competitive conduct in Google’s online advertising business fueled by its dominance in the search engine sphere, connecting online publishers and advertisers to hundreds of millions of users.”
The case is already being called a “significant threat to Google’s business model” and “one of the most prominent antitrust cases in U.S. history.“
