50 state attorneys general launch antitrust probe into Google

The collective of AGs will look into Google, its advertising business, and much more

Google is in some hot water right now, with 50 state attorneys general (had to Google that, it is indeed attorneys general and not attorney generals) launching a new antitrust probe into Google.


The leader of the 50 strong AGs is Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who has said the investigation will kick off looking into Google's advertising business, before it looks deeper into how the company operates itself. On the steps of the Supreme Court, Paxton said: "The facts will lead where the fact lead".

What happens from here? Well, the antitrust probe isn't a lawsuit just yet -- but if the company has broken US antitrust rules then Google could be broken up into smaller pieces. For example, YouTube has long been accused of censoring conservative voices, personalities, channels, and normal everyday people -- yet they can't be held accountable, yet.

We know that Google has political bias (it's not a hidden thing, it's just hiding in plain sight) something that Project Veritas broke open less than a month ago now.
