    So, in tandem with your previous post (The Closing of the Internet Frontier), I came across this little Google tidbit, which clearly demonstrates the FANG companies are wasting no time with the recent passage of 'privacy' legislation which favors their Big Tech monopoly:

    "Google plans to kill support for third-party cookies that track you all over the internet… Apple’s Safari and Mozilla’s Firefox browser have made similar moves to limit cookies."


    The operative phrase being 'third party'… not second.

      So I am not sure what is going on, but the only ads I see are for people trying to help you unload your time-share commitment. Matt Drudge is being hit hard.

      It is a falsehood that business hates government regulation. Big business loves binders full of regulations as a way to prevent competition from new entrants. As much as people might complain about the FCC, the NAB essentially wrote the charter for the FCC, to keep non-commercial stations from taking away audience. That has not changed.

        Believe me, that was painfully obvious when LPFM was being rolled out… and then promptly rolled off (a cliff) by 'Big FM'.

        In his book about the Federal Reserve ("The Creature from Jekyll Island"), writer G. Edward Griffin probably stated it best: as far as big businesses or banks are concerned, "competition is a sin."
