EU fines Google $1.69 billion for restricting ads on third-party sites

EU antitrust regulators fined Google 1.49 billion euro ($1.69 billion) on Wednesday for blocking rival online search advertisers. The case accuses Google of abusing its market dominance by restricting third party rivals from displaying search ads between 2006 and 2016.

When can America sue Google for censoring conservative or right leaning or wing politics? I want to see the government use social media for censorship issues and obvious liberal bias? Let me know.

What's wrong with fining private companies who censor people for nothing when they do wrong. America do it to our companies all of the time. EUROPE FIRST

I'm going to be honest, idk about this cake but the EU is fucking ridicules with its laws, they are so vague that any number of number of normal actions can just be called a is way to hard to follow the law cause the EU purposely makes it so vague that they can determan next to anything as illegal. and unlike the USA, a vague law isnt void in the EU.

Do they really expect they can sue an American company and win. There's just no way they can win this by enforcing their vague laws when we have clear laws here that allow this.
