Well, weâ€™ll say this for Salon: They never run out of ways to make themselves look stupid.
Read it and weep:
Theyâ€™re huge, theyâ€™re ruthless, and they touch every aspect of our daily lives. Corporations like Amazon and Google keep expanding their reach and their power. Despite a history of abuses, so far the Justice Department has declined to take antitrust actions against them. But thereâ€™s another solution.
Is it time to manage and regulate these companies as public utilities?
Writer Richard Eskow thinks itâ€™s a pretty darn awesome idea:
These arenâ€™t just the portraits of futuristic corporations who have become drunk on unchecked power. Itâ€™s a sign that things are likely to get worse â€“ perhaps a lot worse â€“ unless something is done. The solution may lie with an old concept. It may be time to declare Big Tech a public utility.
Smart take, bro.
Itâ€™s a doozy, all right!
Salon likes to keep busy.
Well,Â whatâ€™s good for the goose â€¦ right, Salon?
Hey, itâ€™s only fair.
