In their recent showdown with Congress, the tech titans argued they hadn't grown too powerful. The days that followed told a very different story. (GOOGL)

The CEOs of four tech giants recently defended their market power in a historic antitrust hearing. A week later, it feels like business as usual. Blockbuster earnings, copycat apps, and near-$2-trillion market caps tell a different story to the one we heard from these companies a week ago. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Four of the world's most powerful tech CEOs appeared virtually before Congress late last month to defend against accusations they had grown too powerful. ...

Should Judge Sullivan Be Disqualified from Flynn Case? An Appeals Court Is Asking

Maybe Judge Luttig was right all along.I had the misgivings you’d expect back in late May, when I disagreed with J. Michael Luttig, the stellar scholar and former federal appeals court judge, regarding how the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals should handle the Flynn case.At the time, that court’s three-judge panel had not yet heard oral argument on Michael Flynn’s mandamus petition — i.e., Flynn’s request that the panel find that federal district judge Emmet Sullivan was acting lawlessly. Sullivan ...

The Paramount Consent Decrees Are Officially Over, and Theaters Might Never Be the Same

After more than 70 years, the Paramount Consent Decrees are officially coming to an end, and the world of movie releases will never be the same. It’s a bit strange to consider the future of movie theaters right now since so many theaters remain closed due to the coronavirus, and their reopening remains in doubt. But if and when the virus is over and done with, theaters will be facing a strange new world. Per THR and multiple sources, today “a New York federal judge granted a motion by the U....

Trump’s Racist Appeal To The Suburbs Is Backfiring

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  President Donald Trump has failed to build a physical wall between the U.S. and Mexico, but now he wants to build another wall — between America’s cities and their suburbs. In recent weeks he’s sought to stoke white resentment with inflammatory rhetoric directed at white suburbanites. But so far they don’t seem to be buying what Trump is selling. In a speech on the White House’s South Lawn on July 16, Trump warned tha...

Trump's Justice Department tells court to block California net neutrality law

The U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday asked a federal judge to block California’s net neutrality law, arguing federal law preempts the state's statute. From Reuters: In October, a U.S. appeals court largely upheld the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) repeal of landmark U.S. net neutrality rules. In 2018, California agreed not to enforce its own state net neutrality law until a final court decision on the FCC repeal. The Trump FCC in 2017 voted 3-2 to toss out Obama-era rules prohi...

Fiat Chrysler To Recall Vehicles That May Pollute Too Much

DETROIT (AP) — About 1 million Fiat Chrysler vehicles with four-cylinder engines in the U.S. may spew too much pollution, and the company is working with government officials on a recall. Fiat Chrysler says in a quarterly filing with securities regulators that it found the excess pollution during internal testing of vehicles with 2.4-liter “Tigershark” engines.

30 PPP Fraud Prosecutions So Far, and Counting

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans have aided more than 5 million small business owners, providing a much needed lifeline during the Coronavirus outbreak crisis.

And you won’t believe how rotten they are. To date, the Justice Department has filed 30 PPP fraud cases. Defendants are charged with bilking...

Twitter says Android security bug gave access to direct messages

Twitter says a security bug may have exposed the direct messages of Android app users, but said that there was no evidence that the vulnerability was ever exploited. The bug could have allowed a malicious Android app running on the same device to siphon off a user’s direct messages stored in the Twitter app by bypassing Android’s in-built data permissions. Twitter said, however, that the bug only worked on Android 8 (Oreo) and Android 9 (Pie), and has since been fixed. A Twitter spokespers...

Trump’s New Anti-Immigrant Census Move Could Be Halted Before Count Is Done

A federal judge in New York wants to move quickly in deciding whether the Trump administration can lawfully implement the President’s new anti-immigrant census policy. A briefing schedule laid out by U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman at a Wednesday hearing makes it possible for him — if he is convinced by the challengers’ arguments — to freeze the policy while the 2020 count is still underway. But that possibility comes with the caveat that the case could soon be kicked to a panel of three jud...

Here's everything we do and don't know about Microsoft's bid to acquire TikTok so far (MSFT)

TikTok's parent company ByteDance is facing increased pressure to cut ties with the viral video app, as President Donald Trump has threatened to ban TikTok unless ByteDance divests.
