WASHINGTON, D.C. – Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project, issued the following statement on Jonathan Kanter, the nominee to lead the Department of Justice’s antitrust division, after his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee today.

President Biden hasn’t gotten much right in his first eight months in office. But he’s made an outstanding choice in Jonathan Kanter to lead the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division. Kanter is a highly qualified nominee, as he clearly demonstrated at today’s hearing.

For more than a decade starting under President Obama, the Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division largely failed to enforce our century-old antitrust laws against Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple. Because of this antitrust amnesty, these Big Tech platforms became trillion-dollar monopolists that now enjoy unchecked economic and political power. They are using this power to crush competition, shutter small businesses, and cancel conservatives and others with whom they disagree. There is bipartisan consensus that we must breakup Big Tech.

“Kanter has the necessary legal knowledge, experience, and backbone for this critical post at this critical time. He’s more than capable of tackling all of the antitrust issues that plague our country today, and the Senate should move swiftly to confirm his nomination.”


Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship. Watch our short video about NewsGuard to learn how they control the narrative for the Lamestream Media and help keep you in the dark. NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America.
