President and COO of AT&T, a a huge tech company, worries about tech companies’ power

AT&T President and COO John Stankey is worried about tech companies’ power. Stankey said he’s “really concerned about the concentration of economic power” in big tech companies and how they approach their “platforms’ influence on society.” Stankey’s concern about concentrated economic power is particularly funny given that AT&T now owns Time Warner, which controls HBO, Turner, and Warner Bros. It already operated DirecTV. It, too, has a lot of concentrated economic power.
