Townhall: Mike Davis’ Internet Accountability Project Calls on Senate Republicans to Break Up Big Tech

April 25, 2024


On Thursday, the Internet Accountability Project’s Mike Davis led a letter calling on Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to do their part in breaking up and reining in Big Tech. Townhall received an exclusive sneak peek at the letter, which begins by calling on the Committee “to hold a markup meeting, pass bipartisan antitrust reforms, and take other crucial steps to break up trillion-dollar Big Tech monopolists Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple’s illegal stranglehold over online information and commerce.” The letter also addresses such members for being “leaders in Congress on competition, consumer policy, and antitrust law,” adding “we know you understand the importance of ensuring there is a level playing field.”

Specifically, the letter later goes on to ask for Committee votes on the Advertising Middlemen Endangering Rigorous Internet Competition Accountability (AMERICA) Act (S.1073), the Open Apps Market Act from the previous Congress, and the American Innovation and Choice Online Act (S.2033)

The letter reminds how Big Tech has been able to have a monopoly, a role which has allowed them to have “manipulated elections, COVID guidance, and the news–all without repercussions or checks. Worse, they do China’s bidding.”

Davis was joined by Aiden Buzzeti and Ziven Havens of the Bull Moose Project, as well as Jon Schweppe of the American Principles Project and bestselling author Geoffrey Cain in his letter.

Big Tech censorship is also an issue that has affected Townhall directly, as has been covered at length lately, including by Spencer who just did so last week.
