The Content Creators Coalition (c3) released the following statement reacting to the bombshell New York Times report of Google-forced censorship at New America Foundation:
“Google’s efforts to monopolize civil society in support of the company’s balance-sheet-driven agenda is as dangerous as it is wrong.
“For years, we have watched as Google used its monopoly powers to hurt artists and music creators while profiting off stolen content. For years, we have warned about Google’s actions that stifle the views of anyone who disagrees with its business practices, while claiming to champion free speech.
“Barry Lynn’s Open Markets initiative bravely raised important questions about the growing power Google has in our society.
