Google's antitrust battles: Here's what you need to know
"On Tuesday a sitting on my couch playing with my baby and I got a news alert on my phone that the justice department was suing Google. Phone briefing we understand being led by the deputy Jeffrey. It's the first time. The government has gone after big tech like this in more than twenty years this morning, the Department of Justice and eleven state. Filed an antitrust civil lawsuit against Google for unlawfully maintaining a monopoly general services and search advertising. I wanted to find out more about the and so I searched for the complaint on my phone. And that search was powered by google. You know on one hand your desire your urge to Google to find that information is what millions and millions of people do every day about the most basic queries. That's Tony Romm covers tech for the Washington. Post and they do this at least in Google's is because they see Google to be the best search engine available to people right now. But the thing is Google search engine is on my phone by default. The government basically argues that consumers like me didn't have much choice in the matter that Google became the default not because it's best but because it struck a bunch of unfair deals. Deals with apple and other cellphone makers as well as carriers. Deals that make it search engine and search advertising not just dominant unfairly. So and in addition to that, it's made it hard for any other company any other potential rival to be the next Google. So to speak to put together a search engine that you might find even more effective or you know a company that could have even more useful products that you might be likely to gravitate toward. Here's the thing about antitrust law. It can feel kind of boring and Arcane, but it affects our choices as consumers what we see what we buy what our options are. So a case like this really matters especially because it doesn't happen all that. Often the government really hasn't gone after a company like this in recent memory the last time the Justice Department sued big tech. Company for antitrust violations was in nineteen, ninety eight when it went after Microsoft they just have shied away from those kinds of antitrust challenges. We simply have not seen the US government go toe to toe in a case like the US government is bringing against Google. Today on the show, the case against Google. The government is trying to police big tech for the first time in decades. So why is this happening now? How strong is the case and does it matter that it's coming from trump's justice department? I'm Lizzie O'Leary and you're listening to what? Next td a show about technology power, how the future will be determined
Facebook Revises Rules On Political Advertising
"Facebook announced what it will and will not change as the twenty twenty election arrives. The social media giant says it will let users choose to see fewer political Ads so how does that compare to what its critics wanted Washington Post policy reporter. Tony Romm is with us once again. Good Morning Good Morning. Thanks for coming by. Let's listen to mark Mark Zuckerberg of facebook in an exchange with Representative Alexandria Cossio. Cortez your last year. Let's listen so you won't take down lies or you will take online so I think it's pretty simple. Yes or no hungry woman in Montauk not spin I'm talking about actual yes to democracy. I believe that people should be able to see for themselves. What politicians that they may or may not vote for? You won't take out or for themselves. I read that to mean facebook generally is not going to be taking sitting down lies. That was then this is now. Is that still the policy. It is still the policy. FACEBOOK is not going to take down falsehoods with some limited exceptions. You can't for instance tell people the wrong election date even enrolling out some of these big changes yesterday trying to tighten the political advertising ecosystem ahead of the twenty twenty election sucker. Brook is sticking to this notion that facebook should not serve as the arbiter of truth. It shouldn't be the thing that gets in the way of what a politician is trying to say to the voters taking the position position. That even the politician lying something you might like to know about your politician that they lied but will this policy. Do right the pulse really does two things and I. It gives you more control over the political ads. You see you essentially say you know what. I'm tired of the two thousand twenty election. I WANNA turn off most of that stuff and starting this summer. You'll have an option to be able to do that. Are there multiple options. Can I just turn off the liberal ads or turn off the conservative ads the conspiracy theory ads or whatever category there might in a sense. You can there's going to be one button. Allegedly this is according to the from. Yesterday that has not been fully rolled out yet where you can limits as across the board and then there's a second tool that you can take advantage of that stops. Individual campaigns ends and businesses from targeting adds to you based on your email address or other personal information that they might have on you so I could say I don't WanNa hear anymore from Donald trump or I don't WanNa hear anymore from Elizabeth Warren or pick your person right this is. This is a sort of what facebook is saying here. Based on those ads that are targeted to you on the basis of your email address entirely clear. What is is a political ad because as you know very well? There's so many different kinds of advertisements on issues that aren't necessarily directly from about a candidate. The right facebook has defined this in the sense to include everything from mechanic a campaign and a series a list of issues that include things like immigration and abortion and so forth. And when we're talking about this concern turnaround lying around falsehoods. That mostly involves candidates here. That's a person like president trump and his campaign speaking voters. And we've seen what happens when and facebook's policy really comes to head this occurred last year president trump's campaign purchase a series of ads that included a number of falsehoods about Vice President Joe Biden as it related into the impeachment inquiry underway on Capitol Hill Right now and facebook saw that it received a number of criticisms asking to take it down facebook said no those ads would still. We'll be allowed under facebook's new policy although you can choose not to see them if you decide but wouldn't this just encourage candidates to let other people lie for them which they already do now which they certainly already do within the other concern here. Is that. It's so hard to use facebook in the first place. I mean think about it. How many of your friends or loved ones know how to find their privacy or advertising advertising settings this is the issue that's been raised by experts and lawmakers in recent days? We'll just really matter. We'll see it leaves people to police their own their own
Have Tech Companies Become Too Powerful? Congress Will Investigate
"Support for this podcast and the following message come from Google from Connecticut to California from Mississippi to Minnesota millions of businesses are using Google tools to grow online. Learn how Google is supporting businesses in your state at Google dot com slash economic impact. How important have Facebook, Google apple and Amazon become to your daily life. Some in congress think that these companies have gotten way too big and have way too much power to the point that they are snuffing out competition and actually harming consumers. This comes as the Trump administration has also suggested ramping up its antitrust oversight, Tony Romm with the Washington Post has done extensive reporting on this end is here with us in the studio. Thanks for coming in. Hey, thanks for having me, so congress is holding hearings this week on this very topic. What realistically is gonna come from them? Yeah, this is about the walls really closing in on big tech companies here in Washington. We've heard lots of theoretical concerns for a long time that companies like Facebook and Google and Amazon. Are too big. And as a result of that bigness are misusing your data or stifling competition. But we're now beginning to see lawmakers of both political parties putting that into action. And we had this week was an announcement from Davidson cellini, the top congressmen who leads the House Judiciary committee's competition, focus panel saying that they're going to embark on this very lengthy, top to bottom review of big tech companies to see exactly if they're stifling competition, and then to figure out at the end of the line here, whether something has to be done to fix the country's antitrust laws. And so we could see a lot here because see public hearings, we could see the grilling of major tech executives once again, we could even see subpoenas that force these companies to turn over documents. So it could be pretty uncomfortable for tech. I mean, we did see the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifying in front of congress last year of wanna play a little clip of that. Let's listen overlaps with Porsche, don't think you have a monopoly. Certainly doesn't feel like that to me. Okay. So a Facebook as you point out has long been accused of privacy breaches of spreading disinformation and Washington, kind of just turned a blind eye. Now, there is this change is this all because of the Russian visitation, if feels like they're playing a bit of catch-up here in Washington. It's not all because of the Russia investigation, but I feel. And if you talk to experts, they say, the same thing, there's this overwhelming feeling that perhaps Washington just wasn't paying enough attention to the ills of the tech industry that companies like Facebook had gotten a pretty decent political ride here in Washington. But whether it's what happened with Russia and the spread of disinformation or the privacy violations. We've seen it Facebook. There's down this recognition that perhaps regulation hasn't caught up with these companies. And so this sort of translates, the antitrust conversation with a company like Facebook because lawmakers say, well, if you're concerned with the things that company like Facebook is doing. Where do you turn? What's the other social network that you use? If you find that Facebook is acting in some objectionable way, they think the choices are too few right? Because. Unlike you know. Apple. Which produces the iphone there are other alternatives. Something like Facebook. There really isn't something distinct that, that could provide an alternative for consumers. Yeah. And Facebook bought up some of its competitors. Right. So Facebook, also, owns WhatsApp messaging service, it owns Instagram, which is a photo sharing site that many folks use. And so the concern is that Washington allowed this sort of consolidation to happen. And that perhaps there needs to be a second look at a company like Facebook so separately. The Trump administration is taking these steps at least talking about them to increase antitrust oversight. How is that gonna play up? Yeah. We're sort of seeing the reckoning translate to the Trump administration as well as the Federal Trade Commission and the department of Justice, the two major anti-trust agencies here in Washington are beginning to divvy up their territory, deciding which agency is going to look at Facebook, or Google, or apple or Amazon, and so it's still early days. This is not to say that there's some immediate any trust. Invasive investigation hanging over these companies or that they're going to be broken up or something. But this starts the process, the could lead to the store. Of things that change the way, these companies behave. I mean Donald Trump and democratic contender for the White House, Elizabeth Warren don't agree on much. But at least they're both talking about the fact that these companies have gotten too large. I mean, she's just calling out for the all out dissembling of, of these companies Facebook's co founder Chris, Hughes published an op-ed in the New York Times and talk to us on our show last month, calling for Facebook to be broken up. Let's by that. To be little startup story of American entrepreneurship has become a leviathan and most importantly, Mark, Zuckerberg is unaccountable. And I think government should step up break up the company and regulate it, can you foresee that happening the world long way from that there is a rare political alignment, right now between folks, like Warren and President Trump who feel for slightly different reasons that we need to take a much tougher look at these beat tech companies. But a break-up of Facebook ready of its peers. For that matter is something that wouldn't just happen overnight. I mean remember when the US government looked at Microsoft and embarked on any trust investigation, then it took over a decade for that to even be resolved. So we're talking about a long process and the conversation started really this week, Tony Romm covers technology policy for the Washington Post and he was in our studios. We should add Facebook Amazon, and Google are all NPR sponsors. Tony. Thank you. Thanks, Rava

Click free trial and use the offer code was Sabi. The privacy debate is starting to pit tech against tech from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Apple CEO, Tim cook through down about privacy in the tech industry or what he called the data industrial complex. He called for the United States to adopt comprehensive digital privacy regulations. Apple has stressed privacy. As a selling point over the past couple of years. But this was a big broadside at a couple of the other biggest tech firms in the world, namely, Facebook and Google, and it's worth noting that it's easy for apple to tout privacy when the option it's offering is a closed ecosystem where the company controls every aspect of the technology. Let's dig into this in quality assurance the Friday segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story. Tony Romm is tech policy reporter at the Washington Post. He covered cooks remarks. I think Tim cook is pretty frustrated with Silicon Valley. He's certainly not the only one these days for the company, though, Abba was able to do this because it's business model is so much different than a company like Facebook and Google. Those two companies rely on collecting data about you and turning that data into insights that can then be sold to advertisers. That's how they monetize things with apple. It's different. We're talking about the sale of iphones and ipads in macbook pros, apple CEO. Tim cook has a bit more of a runway to talk about these things than his peers. What did you think about these comments afterward by Facebook's former chief security officer, Alex demos? He said Tim cook is being a little hypocritical because the company accommodates Chinese censorship and essentially saying nobody's clean when they're making billions of dollars off of selling technology dead and even beyond what alexan- was was pointing out in his tweets for member. When you're on your iphone when you're using the search feature you're using Google search there, there's always been terrain between apple and Google with respect to search. So some of the things that Tim cook is lamenting when he talks about privacy or things that in some ways the iphone enables by nudging you towards using Google search in some settings. But I think that it's to the bigger issue here, which is that for many of these companies. Their troubles with governments are very complex, and they're pretty wide ranging it should any tech company be framing the conversation right now, especially a conversation about regulation on privacy. Well, whether they should or they shouldn't be framing it. They certainly are. And that's because these companies don't want to be regulated in a way that affects their ability to collect information and monetize it and many of them are really worried in particular because of what happened in Europe end in California over the better part of the past few years Europe, put in place, very very tough restrictions that how companies can collect in use information, and then California Welden head and did its own version of that sort of GDP are is we call it for the United States. These companies don't want to have to follow multiple sets of rules in different parts of the country. So that's why you're seeing them talk so much about regulation because it's in their interests to set the rules to have a voice in the conversation, so to speak so that they aren't burdened by the regulations put forward by governments. That's Tony Romm tech policy reporter at the Washington Post and indeed while tech. Giants have previously fought against federal privacy. Regulation in recent months, Facebook, Google, IBM, Microsoft, and others have been lobbying the US government for federal privacy law that they have a bigger hand in writing. Now for some related links. Interesting editorial from Cape visine at CNBC saying that if apple stakes its reputation on privacy, insecurity, it could end up with more to lose than Facebook or Google because if it gets hacked or suddenly wants to say monetize data a little bit for its growing apps store at business. It'll be an even bigger hit to its reputation. I guess the flip side of that is the kind of nihilistic argument that at this point we won't be surprised to Facebook or Google or misuse our information on plump, but also this is a bit unusual. But I wanna point you toward a Twitter conversation. I saw you'll find the link at our website marketplace, tech dot org, a reader and venture capitalist was responding to Wall Street Journal writer, Christopher mims about a piece he wrote Thursday on the backlash against big tech. The reader said, maybe we shouldn't think of tech as one category since people aren't really that mad at say into it or Salesforce. And mims responded and said, yeah, you know, maybe what people are really afraid of is specific categories like hem social media. That's a direct quote. I think that this is kind of the heart of this apple versus everybody conversation and something we've been trying to untangle when we talk about the data economy, the business model underneath a few of these huge powerful companies is the data. And as we start to understand the difference. Maybe we can have a better conversation about what we want and don't want in our lives. I'm still not one hundred percent sure that the total control alternative that apple is offering his where I want to end up though, like I wish I could still have Facebook. But with the rules that Tim cook talked about in his tweet storm. I mean can't they make money? And also tell me what information they collect. And why and let me say, no.
