    Extra! Extra! Do Newspapers Need an Antitrust Exemption?

    12 PM EDT

    A number of newspapers—including the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and New York Times—have banded together to seek an antitrust exemption to negotiate collectively with Facebook and Google. Claiming that that the technology giants use their dominant position in online advertising to extract an unsustainable amount of revenues and data, the newspapers argue that collective negotiations are necessary to secure a more sustainable future for the news business. Others counter that giving newspapers an exemption would open the floodgates to similar requests. Please join our panel for a lively discussion on this topic.
