Google a monopoly that should be broken up?


>>BUT TO — EVERY BOX OF HONEY SMACKS THROWN OUT AND NO MATTER WHEN YOU BOUGHT THEM OUT. ALL RIGHT THANKS LIZ. WE HAVE A HEADLINE FOR YOU FROM THE BOSTON GLOBE. LOOK AT THIS EDITORIAL BOARD CAME OUT WITH BREAK UP GOOGLE. JOINING NOW BOSTON GLOBE DEPUTY MANAGING EDITOR. CAN YOU SUMMARIZE THE REASONS REAL FAST FOR US WHY YOU THINK THAT GOOGLE SHOULD BE BROKEN UP. GO.>>SURE, WE THINK THAT — REGULATION OF PEOPLE HAVE LOOKED AT COMPUTER COMPANIES AS IF THEY’RE DORM ROOM PROJECTS BUT GOOGLE AND SEARCH IT DOMINATES THE ADVERTISING — ONLINE ADVERTISING BUSINESS AND IT OWN YOUTUBE THE DISTRIBUTION PLATFORM BUT WE THINK THAT — WE SHOULD TAKE A CLOSER LOOK — AND — WHAT DO YOU THINK WE’LL DO WITH THE DA IT DATA BUT THEY HAVE — [INAUDIBLE CONVERSATIONS] INCREASE ABLE WHAT THEY’RE DOING NOW SO THE REASON THEY SHOULD ACT SOON.>>SO WOULD BREAKING THEM UP SOLVE THE PROBLEM? I MEAN, THEY HAVE POWER WITH ALL OF THESE AVENUES ALL OF THESE SILOS THAT THEY’VE GOT IF YOU BREAK THEM UP THEY HAVE THE POWER WITHIN THOSE SILOS TO ENHANCE THAT POWER. BEFORE –>>I THINK IT CHANGES A LOT ACTUALLY. I MEAN IF YOU WERE TO CELEBRATE YOUTUBE, SEPARATE OUT THE SEARCH CAPACITY FROM THEIR UNITS IT WOULD CHANGE THEIR BUSINESS AND — COMPETING WITH EACH OTHER AND INTERPRET COMPANIES AND YOU WOULD HAVE A MUCH MORE COMPETITIVE ENVIRONMENT. I THINK THAT WE SHOULD REALLY COMPANIES ARE RUNNING THE INTERNET INTO WHAT YOU’RE DESCRIBING AND YOU KNOW, THAT POTENTIAL FOR — THAT’S GOVERNMENT TO STEP IN. I ASSUME YOU’RE OWN THE LEFT-HAND SIDE OF THE AISLE FEEL FREE TO CORRECT ME. [LAUGHTER]>>DEPENDS ON THE ISSUE. HERE’S THE ISSUE. LAST WEEK WE REPORTED IT THAT GOOGLE ITS EMPLOYEES HAD ORGANIZED A PETITION AND THEY REFUSED TO WORK AT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE PROGRAMS FOR THE MILITARY. IN FACT, THEY WANTED TO WITHDRAW GOOGLE FROM ANY DEFENSE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I PRNLLY THINK THAT’S GROUNDS ENOUGH TO KEEK THEM OUT.

YOU WANT TO HAVE COMPANIES THAT HAVE A VARIETY OF POINTS OF VIEW HAVE A VARIETY OF WAYS OF OPERATING AND HAVE THEM ALL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO COMPETE IN A VIBRANT INTERNET MARKETPLACE.>>RICH YOUNG FOLKS IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA MADE A FORTUNE ON GOOGLE SHOULD BE OBLIGED TO JOIN IN AND DEFEND OUR NATION. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT?>>WELL I DON’T KNOW ABOUT PEOPLE BEING OBLIGED TO DO ANYTHING. I THINK THE IMPORTANT THING FOR GOVERNMENT TO DO IN THIS CIRCUMSTANCE IS TO LOOK AT HOW THE MARKET IS OPERATING TODAY. TO NOT TREAT THESE COMPANIES LIKE DORM ROOM PROJECTS AND — TO CREATE VARIETY AND COMPETITION IN THE INTERNET MARKETPLACE.>>THANKS SO MUCH FOR COMING ON THE SHOW AND DIFFERENT IN POINTS OF VIEW AND CLOSE TO MY HEART SO

  • Google should never have been allowed to own YouTube. If Internet Explorer was wrong for Microsoft to control so is this.

  • Google has become incredibly powerful and its amazing how benign people think they are!!!
    My daughter while on Facebook murmured to herself she needed to get Rosie(her GINORMAS Goldendoodle)a kennel and 30 minutes later an ad popped up and again later when she was on Amazon! Her search history NEVER had anything for a dog or a cat other than her checking out Chewy.com so there's ZERO reason for that item to pop up and she's noticed it happening now that she's aware of it and its creepy AF!!!

  • I do my best to avoid all Google. If i can't delete it i disable it. Don't use Google to search anything and don't use it for email. Prob it owns YouTube sadly

  • YES!! GOOGLE, AMAZON or ANY BUSINESS that has SOLD private INFO, or intends to… IT IS A PUBLIC UTLITY at his point! WE the People should OWN SUCH THINGS! Esp. security TECH!!! If WE the PEOPLE were the ones makng MONEY on WAR, weapons and security tech,,,THE WARS WOULD STOP!!!! BECAUSE, WE the PEOPLE VALUE OUR LIVES and ESP our CHILDREN's LIVES!! MOST WARS are for the RICH to GETRICHER and MORE, MORE, MORE….it's NEVER ENUF or THEM!

  • Google is already broken up, already listening to its employees and customers, already separated from conflicts of interest or anti-trust. Even the most aggressive anti-trust litigation by governments (e.g. EU) has resulted in unconvincing grounds for relatively moderate penalties isolated to tax and bias, nothing to do with grounds for breaking up a corporation.
    Google has far less reach and influence than mainstream media (newspapers, owners of TV networks like Fox) and has no conflict interest or agenda to publish, manipulate or support a narrative (e.g. GE using its media ownership to blinker a narrative of pro-war, pro-gun, pro-choice.)

    Refusing to participate in wars of aggression = grounds for being kicked out. Thanks for the insanity, Fox.
