I HOPE THEY’RE PREPARED TO BE DISAPPOINTED: 33 Groups Urge Biden to Reject Big Tech Appointments to His Cabinet.

As you prepare for the presidential transition, we write to urge you to reject the influence of these corporations by committing to exclude Big Tech executives, lobbyists, lawyers and consultants from your administration. Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft once promised innovation and opportunity, and while they continue to provide many remarkable products, they now represent serious threats to privacy, democracy, innovation, and Americans’ economic well-being. Each of these companies have developed predatory business practices that harvest user data for profit. Over the last few years, we have seen how Facebook and Google irresponsibly wield immense influence over democratic elections, without oversight or accountability.

Well, yes — and now that they’ve used that influence to buy access to the White House, they’re going to get it.
