Microsoft and newspapers join forces to fight Google

With the support of both Republicans and Democrats

The Google/Facebook and fake news vs the press continues.

I thought I would open a place to keep track of any further progress in the press vs influence industry battle.

I will update this page as the story evolves and new info comes to hand.

Ciciline’s bill, the “Journalism Competition and Preservation Act of 2021,” would allow news organizations to collectively negotiate with platforms like Facebook and Google the terms in which their content is distributed online. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), who leads the Senate’s antitrust panel, also sponsored the legislation in the Senate and Republicans, like Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) and Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), have already signed on in support of the bill as well.
