Democrats Weigh Antitrust Effort Against Silicon Valley

Lina Khanand Barry C. Lynn were both cited in Vice's Motherboard in a story about antitrust efforts as they relate to Silicon Valley. 

The US Democratic Party has adopted the strongest antitrust platform language in decades, laying the foundation for what some party leaders hope will be an aggressive effort to curb the growing power of Silicon Valley giants like Google, Apple and Amazon.
The inclusion of strong antitrust language in the Democratic party’s platform, which was approved Monday at the Democratic National Convention, is remarkable because it’s the first time since 1988 that an anti-monopoly plank has been included in the document.
