Times-Journal Inc., the company that publishes the Marietta (Georgia) Daily Journal, has filed a lawsuit against Google and Facebook stating that the tech giants have violated federal antitrust and monopoly laws.

Citing a 2020 U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee report concerning competition in digital markets, the lawsuit contends an agreement between the two companies to monopolize the market has had “a profound effect upon our country’s free and diverse press, particularly the newspaper industry.”

Times-Journal Inc. also publishes the Rome News-Tribune, Cherokee Tribune, Calhoun Times, Walker County Messenger, Polk Standard-Journal, Morgan County Citizen and the metro Atlanta area’s Neighbor newspapers, all in Georgia.
