      @Allan Burns im asking what this has to do with trump, makes no sense to bring him up. TDS cause blame trump for everything wrong with the world.

    • Millennial males and hipsters hate Trump. Emasculated twats love the fake plastic culture. Enjoy

    • Yea nothing more American than apple pie and google. How dare he go after a monopoly that’s censoring speech. Orange Man Bad!

  2. Biden 2020

  3. why is it only red states??

  4. Laura Zaboraski | October 20, 2020 at 11:05 AM | Reply

    Bet those 11 states are republican….

  5. Must have said something about Trump he didn’t like.

    • I was thinking the same thing. I images Google would not do Donald a favor?!

    • This is nothing new. Actually senator Warren proposed this on MSNBC before: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziRh4R8yKhs. This is what both parties agreed

      @Grim Reefer DEAR CHILDREN, Google are not simply a SUPER-CRIMINAL enterprise…… 20,000 of their OWN STAFF walked out in protest across the globe in 2018, claiming Google are MASS-MURDERING human rights criminals, duh. (EX: if Google helped China and Amerikkka SUPPRESS whistleblowing etc, Google can be HUNG in the World Court. You cover up human rights crimes, you are GUILTY of human rights crimes.)

      GOOGLE is more corrupt than you children will ever know. (Your pARTISAN garbage is Child 101, is it not? WE ADULTS know Biden and Trump are the SAME WALL ST PUPPET, as are all dems and Repugs, duh.)

      Or maybe it was YouTube’s decision to remove Q Anon from its site??? Last week??

      Aww, leftists are upsetti their propaganda arm is being investigated. Lol

  6. How interesting though. Mostly states led by Republicans.

    • T. R. Campbell | October 20, 2020 at 12:32 PM | Reply

      That is very interesting that you mention that. But one of the most troubling issues is the states that are our most progressive and longtime democrat controlled enclaves are now the ones that impose please brutality, killings of unarmed Black people, and where we hear cries of systemic racism coming from. We have a researcher from UC Berkeley who identified the conditions that existed in the slave plantations of the antebellum South are the same conditions that exist in our minority sections of our most progressive cities. You made an interesting observation but we have to curate a little further now.

    • This is nothing new. Actually senator Warren proposed this on MSNBC before: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziRh4R8yKhs. This is what both parties can agree

    • @Ryanator Well, since they are ALL Republican led states your point is not only moot, it shows you too should agree that it is political. Unless of course you are so biased and political that you cannot admit it. I am certain that this is such an important issue that people in Kentucky and Montana have en masse demanded their state governments spend some of their limited and finite resources on it (both manpower and financial) at this moment in time. Yuppers.

    • @Levi Hawk russia russia russia.. you idiots are too dumb to realise how hypocritical you are. Its now fact the Bidens worked with Russia. Not Trump and your fake pee tapes. Were taking down your fake news. REEEEEE all you want.

      @Matt O’Byrne

      It’s hilarious when left wing thugs like Trayvon and George Floyd die😂😂😂

  7. Bill Barr wont even be around long enough to even see ANY part of this lawsuit process.

    • @slappy91able ya ..know the racist hate, nazi wannabes,people wearing tin foil hats….the list goes on and on

    • @T. R. Campbell Trump and family are criminals….watch msnb instead of fox news

    • @Dumpy Goodness There’s always that one Troll or comment that is just so ignorant that it is not even worth responding to.

      @Sabo308 COOL DEFLECTION, BRO.

      “just b/c not ONE Dempublican on earth can refute or rebut your specific points does NOT mean we are morons or liars!”

    • Small Business Defense | October 20, 2020 at 4:22 PM | Reply

      So you’re saying that Democrats support anti-competitive business practices, lawbreaking, and monopolies, which are bad versions of crony capitalism, if they happen to be liberal-leaning companies? WOW! THIS IS WHY I AM VOTING TRUMP!

  8. Government should never control the Internet.

    • Great journalism …..
      Relax It is time to celebrate !!!
      We should thanks China for the Military C19 BioAttack.
      Now COMMUNISM is the
      only option to stop Trump of Making America Great Again…
      Biden Harris is the only hope to bring America on her knees in front of Communist CHINA 🇨🇳.
      BLM ANTIFA are getting ready to reject the elections results making Democrats the real winner Party.
      VICTORY to CHINA 🇨🇳 🇨🇳🇨🇳 !!

    • awad  true enough — If they want to soak the rich, then soak the rich, even soaking Google. But let Google serve up what it wishes.

    • @Jesus Isback Oh, foo. Richard Nixon sold America to China. It just took several decades of their slave labor and our amoral merchants to consummate it.

      Backing out of that is going to be painful, and even austere at the beginning. The Green New Deal might not be a bad place to begin, if it can levy an ungreenness tax that is about traditional pollutants that cannot be “offset” but only cleaned up.

    Lmfao, so hard to predict what states would join that lawsuit. Morons.

  10. It has nothing to do with anti-trust. Donnie is just throwing a tantrum because his pictures are shown whenever you GOOGLE “stupid” or “moron.”

    • 🤣🤣🤣

    • One doesn’t need to google trump name, his stupidity, bigotry, arrogance, insanity axiomatic.

      DEAR GOOGLE TROLL, too late, lying liar: twas us LIBERALS who slammed you criminals first, so BOTH cons and libs are right that Google is corrupt top to bottom, you lying liar.

      no one despised Repugs more than me, or Trump (aka Biden) more than I do…. but it is NAZISM 101 if Big Tech DOES suppress alternative views they dislike. DO TELL US HOW THAT’S NOT GOEBBELISM 101.

      Betcha you choke, proving you’re a Google troll.

    • Dumpy Goodness | October 20, 2020 at 3:01 PM | Reply

      @Ryanator the evidence against Big Tech is astonishing (b/c they’re so rich and powerful they don’t even cover their tracks), and that’s proven by BOTH cons and libs smashing them at the Congressional hearings (with mountains of evidence presented) last month. Pick ANY category and Big Tech are lawless criminals. (EX: Google admitted to rigging search results to benefit…THEM and their pals! TRUMP 101.)

      GOOGLE IS TRUMP, to the idiots who think this is a gop move.

  11. The Justice Dept corrupted by Barr and the 11 states governed by compromised leaders, why is this not surprising?

  12. As a former “hold my nose” voter, I am going to my local polling location in WISCONSIN to VOTE FOR BIDEN. Don’t worry, I’m bringing snacks and a lawn chair. VOTE AMERICA VOTE!

  13. let me guess……all RED states

  14. BIDEN 2020 🧢🧢🧢🧢🧢🧢🧢🧢🧢🧢

    • Dumpy Goodness | October 20, 2020 at 3:10 PM | Reply

      IRONIC that you cons, er, libs, WANT TRUMP (aka Biden) as the nominee to take on Trump, hmm.

      YOu can lie all you want, but we know ONLY TRUMPSTERS praise Biden. DEMS say “omg Biden is the WORST, but he’s better than Trump!”



    • ^lunatic 😂

  15. Just a matter of time before they come after Twitter and the rest. I guest Google won’t kiss Trump’s you know what.

    • Dumpy Goodness | October 20, 2020 at 3:06 PM | Reply

      Dear Google Troll, we ADULTS all know the endless crimes by BIG TECH. DOJ are choking here, as they should be CUFFING the CEOs of Big Tech for systemic crimes. (EVEN GOOGLE’S OWN STAFF staged a walkout to protest their bosses’ human rights crimes!)

    • Google is too busy kissing up to CCP

  16. Oh my goodness I’ve heard it all. Are they saying google is being racist against certain people well if that’s what thier saying isnt that what Trump is teaching?????

  17. Waste of time an money. You’re going to have a new “Justice Dept” in the U.S. next month anyway.

    • Mike Actually in late January.

    • Dumpy Goodness | October 20, 2020 at 3:05 PM | Reply

      @K. McKee Actually, THIS SUIT will continue, as BOTH Cons and Libs want Big Tech held accountable for once. The tv clip above was very deceptive: the Microsoft case was flawless. WHAT HAPPENED was, BUSH stole the election and had his DOJ wimp out to protect Big Capitalists. The press (owned by Big Capitalists, hmmm) leave that part out!

      TRUMP’S TWIN, BIDEN, however, is 110% shill for Wall St (Trump is only 98% shill for Wall St), and would indeed most likely choose Big Tech over us little consumers, just like the Black Bush, OBAMA always did!

    • Bruce strkland | October 20, 2020 at 4:10 PM | Reply

      Nothing wrong with getting it started

  18. The timing of this announcement is so obviously political. Oh, and I thought Republicans were against regulation, yet it’s a Republican AG and red states that are announcing this.

    • Throwing red meat to the hounds. The rest of us — I wish I *could* block those mighty righty ads from my feeds. Sometimes I cannot. The First Amendment surely cannot include leaning on private agencies to guarantee an audience. And you have to be living under a rock to not know of the Trump tweets.

    • 🤣🤣🤣

      (EX: even BERNIE is a Biden-Trumpster WAR CRIMINAL for claiming W Bush OUTSMARTED Bernie re the totally fake AFGHANISTAN war.)

  20. Calvin NDallas | October 20, 2020 at 12:26 PM | Reply

    Even IF the accusations were true the timing of the case filing will look like a political persecution.

    • Dumpy Goodness | October 20, 2020 at 3:15 PM | Reply

      OR it’s because they know that Biden is a far more obedient wall st puppet than loose canon Donald is.

      Biden will do what GOP Troll Obama ALWAYS DID: expand Repugnicanism, and protect Wall st at ALL COSTS.

      (The GOP only attack Big Tech for the wrong reasons.)
