Bill to aid US publishers vs. Google, Facebook rises again

In this file photo, Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., speaks during the House Committee on Foreign Affairs hearing in Washington. A bill sponsored by Cicilline, which was introduced in March for the third time since 2018, to bolster U.S. news organizations in negotiations with Big Tech has supporters hoping its odds of passage may have improved in a Democrat-run Congress that's working on overhauling antitrust laws. Cicilline said in prepared remarks for a hearing earlier this month that the legislation would provide news publishers an “even playing field” to negotiate deals with major tech platforms.
