In the News…

Colorado Representative Ken Buck believes questioning big tech executives about their industry’s alleged bias is appropriate because their bias and anti-competitive behavior are inextricably linked. Bias should be closely examined at the House Judiciary Committee, he said. If tech companies monopolize the industry and reduce the number of platforms, then they can also limit options for those who worry tech companies are biased.

“If these platforms weren’t so large and dominant the bias issues would not  be important,” he said. He offered an example. “I can get my news from MSNBC and I can get my news from Fox, both biased. I know that there is a slant in every one of them, and being somewhat sophisticated in the area, I know what the slant is before I go in and take news from the organization.

“When you control the platform to such an extent and you have bias as in the case of Facebook, for example, then you have issues about freedom, so I think the bias and privacy issues are both related to the anti-competitive behavior. It’s relevant because of the fact these platforms are so dominant.”
