Indiana AG launches investigations into large tech firms alleging violations of client regulation – WISH-TV | Indianapolis Information | Indiana climate
Republican Todd Rokita said his office wanted to know if Facebook, Twitter, Google, Amazon and Apple are violating Indiana consumer laws.
He suggested that the big tech companies may be engaging in misleading or unfair business practices by censoring conservative points of view.
“In a free society, few assets are more important to consumers than having access to information and being able to express political views in meaningful forums,” Rokita said in a press release broadcast on New 8 on Wednesday. “It is potentially harmful and unfair for these companies to manipulate content in ways that they do not publicly discuss or that consumers do not fully understand.”
Rokita said the investigation could lead to lawsuits against the big tech companies.
