CNN reports that the 50 attorneys general are from 48 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico

"The state investigations put an additional layer of pressure on both" Google and Google parent company Alphabet, "which are already facing antitrust scrutiny on the federal level," CNBC reported.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said that Google "dominates all aspects of advertising on the Internet and searching on the Internet," and that the investigation will initially start with Google's advertising business "but the facts will lead where the facts lead."





"The Federal Justice Department's antitrust division, under Makan Delrahim, unveiled its own plans in July to probe whether major social media, search and e-commerce companies have grown too dominant,"

"This adds a whole different level of complexity for both Facebook and Google to deal with because they're dealing with potentially many different investigations, not all of which may be coordinated," said Robert Litan, former Clinton-era deputy assistant attorney general in the DOJ's antitrust division. "All I know is I'm sure this is a major headache for the general counsels of both of these companies."

California is one of only 2 two states not to participate. [I'm Shocked - Shocked I say]

The problem with the technology industry is that it lends itself towards this sort of market domination, because it relies heavily on innovation and invention.

If someone comes up with a new technology that people embrace, they will usually dominate the marketplace. This is nothing new. Microsoft was, at one time, the ONLY player in computer systems and software.

I will believe substantive changes at Google when I see them.

This is about advertising. Not their suppression of anti prog searches.

Yes. Unfortunately it's not comprehensive

Still, once Google can be shown to be hit, others will pick up on it .. the censorship of opposing views by it and others has to be dealt with

Google has more power than China and the United States combined.
