Any chance the FTC is not an agency totally owned by some Trump stooly who just wants to shake down these tech firms for - you know, dirt on somebody?


I’m sure this move is to encourage Zuck to zuck up to Trump more than he already has. “Reforms” which benefit the regime will follow and things will be just fine. No worries.

While I applaud the move, the worst at this was Yahoo, who bought up good companies, repeatedly made the product worse, then killed them, all while somehow losing market share and status. They are like a drowning man who pulls healthy swimmer down with them out of spite.

The other companies may be evil, but at least they’re making something of themselves. Meanwhile, Yahoo keeps on Yahooing the internet for the last 20 years.
