Jon Stewart to Tackle Tech Monopolies on Tonight’s Daily Show

It’s another Jon Stewart Monday at the Daily Show, with the host set to welcome his first goverment official since returning to the Comedy Central series in February.

Stewart’s guest tonight will be Lina Khan, chair of the Federal Trade Commission.

Nominated by President Biden to the FTC when she was just 31 years old, Khan is best known for her work in antitrust and competition law.

Under her leadership, the Commission has pushed to ban non-compete agreements, filed lawsuits against health care companies engaging in anti-competitive practices, and launched several high-profile lawsuits against tech giants Microsoft, Meta and Amazon.

The case against Amazon, which 17 states have joined the FTC in bringing, focuses on the tech giant’s alleged use of unfair tactics to ensure it always offers the lowest prices on the internet. If successful, could mean huge changes for the Amazon, including a possible breakup of the internet goliath.
