Trump considers executive order allowing feds to investigate social media bias

A low-key White House document obtained by Bloomberg allegedly reveals that President Trump may be moving toward the signing of an executive order that will allow federal investigators to probe Alphabet Inc’s Google, Facebook, and other social media platforms for bias and antitrust violations.

From Bloomberg:

The document instructs U.S. antitrust authorities to “thoroughly investigate whether any online platform has acted in violation of the antitrust laws.” It instructs other government agencies to recommend within a month after it’s signed, actions that could potentially “protect competition among online platforms and address online platform bias.”

The draft order does not name any companies specifically.
