Not that I’m a big fan of Facebook and Google in any way, but this bill is a little disturbing. Why are media companies working with politicians in order to benefit themselves? The point of the media is to challenge the powerful and our politicians by questioning what they say and do. Allowing media companies, some of whom which benefit from this legislation are not very small such as the New York Times and the Washington Post, to be exempt from anti-Trust laws for a certain period of time throws that separation between our politicians and the media into question. Companies like Facebook, should instead be regulated like public utilities. Their role in the dissemination of information has simply become to large for them to just be regulated as just private companies.
