Justice Dept. should take into consideration Disney’s anti-competitive opposition to family-friendly content filtering when contemplating Disney-Fox merger

Feb. 22, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Justice Department to take into consideration Disney’s anti-competitive opposition to family-friendly content filtering when making a decision to approve or disapprove its proposed merger with Fox:

“Parents should be allowed to filter the content that flows into their kid’s minds if they believe it is too violent or otherwise. Disney has led the charge against content filtering for years, and now after this anti-competitive behavior, it is attempting to gain Justice Department approval for its megamerger with Fox. The Attorney General and Justice Department should take into account whether Disney has abided with the spirit and intent of the Family Movie Act in opposing content filtering technologies, and then act accordingly.”
