Google hit by antitrust lawsuit from nearly 40 states over alleged search monopoly

"And meanwhile in the midst of everything. We've been talking about today. We expect a bipartisan group of more than thirty state attorneys general to announce an antitrust lawsuit against google later today accusing them of favoring their own products in their search results. I'm not gonna hold the show this afternoon just to report the news because we know it's coming the quotes and get some smart analysis of the details of the case tomorrow. But in the meantime i did wanna flag this. Because we've actually had a look at this antitrust suit which is being led by the texas attorney general and interestingly it makes a specific accusation that google facebook special privileges in exchange for not supporting a competing. Ads system this is potentially very very meaningful. A lot of these other anti-trust cases have been kind of arguing. Theory like what is a monopoly. And what isn't what is. The definition of the market given company is operating in what constitutes anticompetitive behavior. Even but this this is potentially something more tangible because this alleges actual cut and dry collusion the actual of a market by two powerful players in that market this would be an actual illegal conspiracy. Were talking felonies here. Allegedly quoting wired as described in the complaint. The scheme between google and facebook has its roots in two thousand seventeen when facebook announced it would start supporting something called header bidding. The details are two key to get into here. Basically google which runs the biggest online ad exchange likes to make publishers give it first dibs on bidding to place an ad publisher just means any website or app that runs ads. Header bidding was a technical hack that allowed publishers to earn higher prices by soliciting bids from multiple exchanges at once. Google hated this because it created more competition. When facebook declared that it would work with publishers that used header bidding. It was seen as a provocation. The millions of businesses that advertise with facebook don't just advertise on facebook through the facebook audience. Network the company also places ads across the web making it one of the biggest ad buyers on the internet if it began supporting header bidding. That could cause google's ad platform to lose a lot of business drawing on internal documents uncovered during its investigation however the texas attorney general claims that facebook's leaders didn't actually want to compete with google. They wanted google to buy them off. This seems to have worked in september two thousand eighteen. The company's cut a deal facebook. The complaint says agreed to quote curtail its header bidding initiatives and send the millions of advertisers in its facebook audience network to bid on google platform. In return. google would give the facebook audience networks special advantages at auctions including setting aside a quota of ad placements to facebook. Even when the company didn't make the highest bid the agreement the complaint says quote fixes prices and allocates markets between google and facebook and quote. Here's why that matters. The other antitrust cases filed against google and facebook this year by the justice department for google and the federal trade commission and state attorneys general for facebook are based on section. Two of the sherman act which is about building a monopoly in a section two case. It isn't enough to show that a company dominates a market. The government must also prove that it got to the top by using anticompetitive tactics rather than by just being the best. The alleged conspiracy between google and facebook is different. It falls under section one of the sherman act which makes it illegal for two or more companies to make any contract or agreement quote in restraint of trade and quote while the texas case is a civil suit. The claims in it could conceivably serve as the basis of federal criminal charges. A section one case is much simpler if there's proof that the companies did agree to fix prices rig bids or just not compete with each other. That's the end of the inquiry quote. If you can prove an agreement between two firms once you have proof of that agreement. It is called per se illegal said sally hubbard director of enforcement strategy at the open markets institute. An anti monopoly. Think tank quote. This is why antitrust enforcers love to bring section cases because if you can find evidence of more than one firm agreeing to fix prices agreeing not to compete agreeing to allocate a market once. You prove that agreement it's automatically illegal. It ends there and quote. Unlike last week's facebook antitrust filing or the house report on big tech from over the summer most of the juicy details and internal documents including a screenshot of the contract terms between facebook and google are blacked out. The heavy reductions are not the only strange thing about the case the texas attorney general's office fresh off a losing effort to overturn. The presidential election announced the suit in a weird amateurish video posted to twitter before the case had been filed. Still there are some tantalising clues. The document alludes to an email about the arrangement from dan. rose facebook's vice president of partnerships to ceo mark zuckerberg that suggests that whatever deal the two companies had was signed off on at the highest levels another heavily redacted section alleges google violated users privacy and quote agreed ways after signing an agreement with facebook in two thousand fifteen that gave the company access to quote millions of americans end to end encrypted. What's at messages photos videos and audio files and quote. So you know don't as roger mcnamee tweeted quote the filing asserts that google conspired with facebook in the digital ads market if they can prove it and they appear to have evidence. Google and facebook are in huge trouble and quote.

"Roger McNamee has been an investor for decades. He was here for the boom of the PC generation palm pilot invested in PDA's before long before the iphone and created elevations partners with none other than U2.'s frontman Bano. He was an early investor in. In the Facebook and early council to Mr. Mark Zuckerberg since that time, he's been dismayed by some of the changes that occurred at Facebook, the move fast and break things ethos has broken things, Shirley, and one of the things that has been broken has been trust with users, and perhaps even our democracy. He wrote about it in an amazing new book called socked, it's a very brave book because being technologist here in Silicon Valley and being critical of the big winners is something that can land you in trouble something that happened to me a decade ago when I criticized Mark Zuckerberg publicly for some of the privacy snafus they had been dealing with. And after I criticized him, I literally had one of the LP's from one of the venture firms that had invested in me. Essentially threaten me. And that was not a good feeling. Roger welcome to the program. Jason is really fun to be here. I mean, I'm just it's very exciting. Blighted beer, and you heard him my Lynch reduction their number one. Thanks, come on the show. I'm torn with this episode because I want to tell your story, but this story is so big. And what's great about your book? Is you you spend a chapter two on yourself in your story. And I just thought oh my God. That's the story. I really wanna read because I know this story. So I'm going to break this interview up into two parts. I wanna talk about the book while you wrote it and the experience, and then we'll back into and we've into that discussion. Everything you've done for moon Alice to investing in startups a kid from Albany who made it to to the top echelon of Silicon Valley. So, you know, this book was not something I was planning to do. In fact, this whole experience has been terrifying. Because Facebook for me was an enor-. Thomas -ly gratifying experience, my relationship to Mark Cheryl, me other executives. There was fantastic. And I was so proud of it and. I had been involved not at the very beginning. But early two thousand six to two thousand nine was the real sweet spot of my involvement, and the company was two years old when I met Mark, and I got involved, but in two thousand sixteen of course, we have the beginning of election cycle, and I've just really exited the investment business, you know, elevations have been very successful fund, and the culture of the valley had changed and what I realized was that, you know, there's a time and season for everybody. And I wasn't a perfect fit for where the culture was going. There were all these really cool successful companies who had kind of move fast and break things attitudes towards stuff. And I realize I'm not really a move fast and break things kind of person. So I will step back, but I was on vacation with my wife, and I'm on Facebook, which I was completely addicted to, and I started to see things that didn't fit my preconceived notion of what I should see on Facebook and over the course of twenty sixteen I saw a. Series of things that were all unrelated. And yet all the only possible explanation was was something about the business model and something about the culture, the algorithms that allowed bad actors to harm innocent people, and I saw things in civil rights that were like really really fundamentally wrong..

"Place. Everything a member of congress would need to understand how we got here. And what the options were for fixing the rubble and. It basically Zok put out his New Year's resolution on January first that he was gonna fix Facebook. Which everybody went wait. What I mean? One minute before that came out. He was telling every there's nothing to see there's nothing to fix right? And all of a sudden he's going I'm gonna fix Facebook. And my thing which had been written a couple of months before was slated be posted on the eighth. They accelerate it to the fifth, and it comes out in its six thousand words in reads, like a point by point rebuttal and. Over that weekend. It spread outside a Washington. Basically. Tim burners leash shared it with his whole list. Somehow, George Soros sought all kinds of people saw it and Andrew Bosworth on the eighth of January posts the tweet you're talking about. And basically asked who is this guy and everybody I was in New York for few weeks in every media outlet in New York decided to find out. Well, you know, I have to say, so when you were on television so much I think, you know, I even heard from circles out here like why is Roger McNamee going? You know, becoming hysterical about Facebook. Does he have an ulterior motive is he trying to get attention for summary completely reasonable questions? And, you know, so here's a funny thing, I still own Facebook stock, and I mean, not a little it is by a factor of I don't know five or ten the largest single position. I have I made a conscious choice that I was going to hold the position while I was doing my activism because I wanted people to understand that. I don't have a financial motive for do the doing this. I don't have a Michael here is that. I I'm a citizen of the United States of America. I am a human being in the world and. What initially looked like a small problem? What rapidly metastasized into a big problem? I now perceive as a stem EQ issue that threatens the economy that essentially there'd been a few times in history when something in the industrial commie happened that literally changed the world so much. There was a before. And an after Gutenberg with the printing press would be one of those another one of those was the commercialization of the automobile. Now, we have a new thing this exactly like that Brizzi. Professor Harvard Business school's just written a book called the age of surveillance capitalism. Her name is Shoshana Zubov. And she makes the point that this particular revolution is has an opportunity to empower people. But for whatever reason Google and Facebook have chosen not to do that that we talk about in an advertising business that that we are the product. Act not not a customer. In fact, my hypothesis is that in the model of Facebook and Google were actually the fuel that these are extraction industries. They're basically sucking data out of us, and they're not using the data to empower us or Megan's more successful the way Henry the way that Henry Ford did at in his factories. They're using the data to manipulate our attention and ultimately to control us in order to meet their goals. None our goals. And what's weird is these businesses would be great businesses? If they just had some balance in that if they would recognize that meeting our goals would be in their interest to and that this would last a lot longer if they did that. Right. And so in the tech industry, I grew up in the tech industry before two thousand was a world that Steve Jobs described as a world of bicycles for the mind. It was empowering and enabling people to be successful. And this. New world is about taking away the things that make us individual. And again, that's a choice. That's not a requirement. It's not about AI that says it has to do that. In fact, will be fairly straightforward to fix it. But nobody has Senate to do that. So why am I doing this? I think that bicycles for the mind is a much better model for technology than taking away our humanity. I liked democracy better than author -tarian assume and these companies have as an unintended consequence of well-intentioned strategies produced both of those outcomes, and I don't think anybody at Facebook rules trying to hurt the world, but they're so focused on their own goals..

"Could signal the worst is behind it. We'll explain when fast money return. Welcome back to fast money Facebook on the cover of time magazine for all the wrong reasons. Some big tech titans including apple CEO, Tim cook and early Facebook, backer. Roger McNamee taking aim at Facebook spaces practices and calling once again for federal regulation of the tech behemoth despite being called out the stock ending the day higher. It is up thirteen percent. So far this year. So is this a case of the magazine cover indicator signalling that the worst may actually be over for Facebook din. Well, the last night we were focused on a magazine cover for Facebook was back in September two thousand twelve Barron said is it worth fifteen dollars in their answer was no that was when the stock was twenty three bucks. I mean, it listen, I don't place emphasis on this. I just say if the main reason why you're staying away from Facebook is fear of federal regulation than you're probably thinking about it wrong. When you think about the fact that the government is partially shut down right now. And would no end in sight in all the other problems. They have they're probably not going to get around to Facebook anytime. Karen? Well, it's funny. To me. I mean time magazine is so many times called the wrong thing the housing boom, right at the very very top the internet bubble. It's such an old school kind of medium to give this message. Right. So I he there were few points in it that were interesting. But I think it's starting to stop trading down on the same bad news over. No, right. Although we should put that teen percent move in context because we learned yesterday. The average stock is up thirteen fragile because it seems crazy. But so someone for being up thirteen percent when the market is up. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I I think Facebook's case though, we know that they have this the way to the world in terms of regulation. And also, I think it's more really the jury perception amongst their users. I mean that to me is more what I worry about. And then I worried about a company that continually can't tell you how to value the cost to improve their business. That's what worries me again. I don't think this company is going out of business. I think they've been enormously profitable business. But I think the multiple until proven otherwise is a function of the quality of the management and. The sense of corporate governance risk traded up basically to where the stock was after Mr. Berg testified in March in front of Senate. That's where it should stop. That's why I think it will stop. I think as we approach earnings. Tim's point I think it's going to roll over and head back down. Well, line trader thinks the worst could be behind Facebook sedan mom you head over to the plasma. And tell us what you saw about. Sure. Mel there's interesting options action today Facebook, call volume was two times that of puts and there was a trade. They caught my eye reversal. Where it trader sells out of money. Put in the same expiration buys an out of the money. Call and they're creating a bullish structure on trade in particular today was in March expiration when Facebook is trading at one hundred forty seven dollars, the trader so two thousand of the March one twenty five puts and they use the proceeds of that to finance the purchase of two thousand of the March one seventy calls that trade basically makes money a March expiration above one seventy worst case scenario, the stock is one twenty five or lower in the traders. The stock and has losses below that. What's really interesting to me about this sort of trade structure, though, is there's this huge wide range about thirty percent where on March, there's no gain or loss, and these are the sorts of trades that you might put on if you're trying to kind of just get away from some slippage of an entry price after thirteen percent rally like Mel just said about it. So let's just go to the chart real quickly here and just think about some of these levels here, obviously that was the high from last summer the thing has been in a very very steady. Downtrend it's gotten right back up to some kind of interesting support here right near one hundred and fifty bucks. Just like guy said expectations are getting high into the print..
