The headline in the New York Times one day last week: “Antitrust Overhaul Passes Its First Tests. Now, the Hard Parts.” The article notes that “[t]he bills face fierce opposition from technology companies, which have marshaled their considerable lobbying operations.” That would have been a good place to mention the fierce support for the bills coming from the Times itself, although I suppose that would be obvious to anyone who had read the article’s headline.
The Washington Post recently called out OAN reporter Christina Bobb for reporting on the Arizona recount while also raising funds to support it. How about an exposé on the Times for cheering on antitrust reforms that target the paper’s own direct competitors—the Tech Giants—for advertising dollars? If the giants go down, the Times will gain.
But I guess the Washington Post will too.
