FEATURING JESSICA J. GONZÁLEZ – Amid the crisis in the White House with the super-spread of the coronavirus through the top echelons of government, a massive Congressional report on the big four tech companies got little notice. The Antitrust Subcommittee of the House Judiciary committee released the 450-page report that, among other things, called out Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon for their monopoly business practices. The report goes further in calling for the companies to limit their acquisitions and even break up into smaller entities.
