Joseph Turow, Ph.D., the Robert Lewis Shayon Professor of Communication at Annenberg, was quoted in a New York Times article about the Federal Trade Commission giving the go-ahead for a merger between Internet giant Google and digital marketing company DoubleClick. “Why do you give the store to the top company? Why do you give it to the 5,000-pound gorilla? Let that gorilla create its own company,” he says. Dr. Turow has written about the Google/DoubleClick merger, most recently in an op ed that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle in October.
