That is what they are paid to think. Public interest is so 20th Century. Neoliberalism rules!

In the USA the idea that private sector monopolies are much worse than public monopolies is tantamount to heresy. Only a socialist or communist would say that.

A private sector monopoly is impossible anyway, because the magic of the market will make sure it's always disrupted by innovative startups. So, since they are theoretically impossible, it's best to avoid looking for them, lest one's eyes be traumatized by a vision of an Eldritch Horror.

Wot! Kick Google and Facebook into the internet memory cache? You would need the invisible hand, unobservable foot, and lots of fat-fingered friends and Russian bots to achieve such a feat...
