Sen. Lee Demands Truth from Google and Facebook on Collusion Claims

December 22, 2020

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Tuesday after seeing reports that Facebook and Google agreed not to compete against each other in online advertising, and had a deal in place to help each other if the agreement attracted antitrust scrutiny.

“Google has repeatedly pointed to Facebook as evidence for its claim that there is plenty of competition in online advertising. But it turns out the two companies may have agreed not to compete at all. The American people deserve to hear the truth, under oath.”
