Time to break up Google and Facebook, says New York attorney general

New York attorney general candidate Zephyr Teachout promised Wednesday to “explore breaking up” Facebook and Google if she is elected, using state and federal antitrust laws.

Standing in front of the Manhattan offices of the New York Daily News, Teachout said tech companies are to blame for dominating the online advertising market — drawing revenue from newspapers and publishers. Teachout’s remarks came a day after the Daily News in New York announced layoffs that reduced the size of its newsroom by half.
