IAP Statement on Bipartisan Senate Bill to Rein in Big Tech

October 14, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC — Mike Davis, President and Founder of the Internet Accountability Project, released the following statement after U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) announced Big Tech antitrust legislation.  

“This is a major breakthrough in the fight to rein in Big Tech. Just yesterday, Jeff Bezos was exposed for lying to Congress about Amazon’s practice of self-preferencing its own products. The effort to put an end to Big Tech’s antitrust amnesty is growing in Congress. It’s bipartisan and now it’s bicameral. Big Tech cheats, lies, and steals and must be held accountable. This is about fairness for small businesses so they can compete on a level playing field with Big Tech. The Internet Accountability Project applauds the leadership of Sens. Amy Klobuchar, Chuck Grassley, Lindsey Graham, Cynthia Lummis and John Kennedy. We look forward to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s review of their legislation. Favorably reporting this bill out of committee should be an easy vote for every senator.”

IAP is a nonprofit conservative advocacy group that holds Big Tech accountable for engaging in egregious business practices like snooping, spying, political bias against conservatives, employee abuses and anticompetitive conduct. Davis previously served as Chief Counsel for Nominations to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary and led the Senate confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and a record number of circuit court judges.
