BREAKING: ‘Oops,’ Said Faceberg

So lifelike.

U.S. government calls for breakup of Facebook

The Federal Trade Commission sued to break up Facebook on Wednesday, asking a federal court to force the sell-off of assets such as Instagram and WhatsApp as independent businesses.

“Facebook has maintained its monopoly position by buying up companies that present competitive threats and by imposing restrictive policies that unjustifiably hinder actual or potential rivals that Facebook does not or cannot acquire,” the commission said in the lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C.

The lawsuit asks the court to order the “divestiture of assets, divestiture or reconstruction of businesses (including, but not limited to, Instagram and/or WhatsApp),” as well as other possible relief the court might want to add.

Well, that’s a bet I lost. I thought Lord Damp Nut would let the entire NASDAQ merge into one as long as they gave him the cream off the top.

    I always thought he was way off the mark, gobbling up his rivals like that. (swidt?)

  2. I’ll bet Faceberg told LDN ‘no you can’t wet your beak’, and wh and ftc political appointees managed to confiscate LDN’s phone before he could tweet that we should just nationalize Facebook and give it to LDN.

    Then they put this weak tea forward. (a booby trap for Biden…it will be his FTC suing Faceberg and this will give the Rethugs ample opportunity to scream and howl how he wants to Burn America To The Ground!!!! for continuing a lawsuit they started… )

    Shorter MHSG: Off with his head!

    I wonder how faceberg (a real billionaire) feels about being treated like just a common messenger by a MHSG who is on the hook to Russian Mobsters?

    Annieasksyou might have the answer to the why of this particular action.
    When it isn’t confession and projection it must be quid pro quo

    Oh, yeah. This will be as earth-shattering and hurt Facebook every bit as much as did U.S. vs. Microsoft.

    Money doesn’t pay, ever. Little people do.

    (It just occurred to me that my avatar might cause some to vibrate at an unintended frequency; after the fashion of fighter pilots ‘of yore,’ the graphic was the decal I ‘painted’ on my battlemech when my son and I played Mechwarrior back in the day. Image from painting by Suidmak (Google it). If anyone objects, pipe up, but you have the heavier lift – I think I found the best use ever for Comic Sans)
