ANTITRUST PROBE OF GOOGLE MOVES FORWARD
Officials from the DOJ and some state attorneys general are reportedly set to meet on Friday to discuss an antitrust probe of Google.
Reuters reports that U.S. Justice Department officials and some state attorneys general have set a meeting for Friday to discuss an antitrust probe of Google. The federal government and nearly all state attorneys general have now opened investigations into allegations that Google has broken antitrust laws.
The federal probe is focusing heavily on search bias, advertising and Google’s Android mobile operating system. Breitbart News reported in November of 2019 that the attorneys general which are representing 48 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C will be writing up subpoenas known as civil investigative demands (CID) to support the investigations.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is leading the probe, which initially focused mainly on Google’s advertising business. But at a recent meeting, Paxton expressed his support for expanding the purview of the investigation to include Google search and the company’s Android mobile operating system. Other states will be carrying out the investigation of search and Android separately. . . .
It was recently reported that the CEO of DuckDuckGo, Gabriel Weinberg, stated that the company has spoken with state regulators and the DOJ. Justice Department officials and state attorneys general reportedly asked DuckDuckGo about requiring Google to give consumers alternatives to its search engine on Android devices and in the Google Chrome web browser.
Weinberg told Bloomberg: “We’ve been talking to all of them about search and all of them have asked us detailed search questions.” Winberg’s comments appear to indicate that the search engine, one of Google’s core businesses, is under great scrutiny in antitrust probes.
The DOJ and Texas are reportedly already examining Google’s dominance in the digital advertising market. The Justice Department alongside a coalition of states led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton have been investigating Google for a year and a lawsuit has already been drafted by the DOJ which could be filed within the next few months. . . .
Google’s search business handles most of the online searches in the U.S. with Microsoft’s Bing and DuckDuckGo trailing far behind. The business generated almost $100 billion in revenue last year.
A Google spokesperson previously commented on the antitrust investigations stating: “We continue to engage with the ongoing investigations led by the Department of Justice and Attorney General Paxton, and we don’t have any updates or comments on speculation.”

WHO HAS EVER GIVEN THEM SOVEREIGNISM OVER OUR WHOLE WORLD? THEY ARE SICK SICK AND MAY OUR GOV’T ATTACK
THEM AND SOLVE WHAT THEIR WHOLE AIM HAS BEEN AND WHO IS PAYING FOR ALL OF THESE PROBES INTO OUR LIVES…
Father God protect your people at this time with the GOOGLE fiasco including its owners propaganda.
In Jesus’ mighty name I pray. Amen.
I’m wondering what’s taking so long with these investigations? Google, Youtube, and Facebook openly and blatantly censor and block conservative and Christian speech! Father, I pray that you will lead and direct
those investigating. Bless their work. Give them wisdom, courage, and much spiritual and practical support.
May your people rise up in prayer and action to insure that justice is done in all affairs of state.
Yes, LORD, and we pray protection over each of these investigators and their families. We pray that You will help each to work with integrity and courage
In Jesus name may it be so.
