In a letter to FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz from Sen. Herb Kohl the panel’s chairman, and Mike Lee, the ranking member they urge an anti-trust probe of Google. That’s par for the course and really not that interesting — what’s more interesting is this statement near the end of the letter:

Rather, our interest is to enure robust competition in this vital market. We recognize that the Internet is fast evolving and subject to rapid technological change. We are motivated by a strong desire to protect the Internet’s openness, competitiveness, and capacity for innovation.

Apparently these Senators are not aware that we have much bigger problems than Google. ((One would think that SOPA is more damanging than Google.))
