IAP Statement On Josh Hawley’s “Trust-Busting” Plan

April 12, 2021

WASHINGTON – Mike Davis, founder and president of the Internet Accountability Project (IAP), today released the following statement regarding Senator Josh Hawley’s “trust-busting” plan.

“Senator Hawley’s ‘Trust Busting For The Twenty-First Century Act’ is the type of bold leadership and smart legislation this country so desperately needs. Senator Hawley’s commonsense bill introduces the hard reset Congress must enact to save the free market from abusive trillion-dollar Big Tech monopolists and other giant woke corporations attempting to exert too much power and control over our lives. 

“For too long, through antitrust amnesty and Section 230 immunity, Google has been allowed to exert too much influence through its control over the internet. Along with Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter, they continue to censor conservatives, violate our privacy and crush their competition at all costs and without consequence.

“IAP applauds Senator Hawley’s leadership, and we encourage his Republican colleagues to join him in this fight. Words are not enough and silence is unacceptable. The time for action on antitrust is now. Congress must pass strong antitrust laws in order to protect competition and prevent future monopolistic behavior that destroys our competitive free markets.” 

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.
