DOJ stands with Microsoft
R. Hewitt Pate, the U.S. Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust, issued a statement last week about the European Commission's ruling against Microsoft. Far from being on the side of consumers and a free market, Pate's remarks nestle cheek to jowl with the monopolist itself. It even threatens -- on Microsoft's behalf -- the relationship between the United States and the EC if the Europeans dare to act like sovereign nations and put the interests of their citizens ahead of Redmond's. It's like waking up one morning to find your district attorney, who has sworn an oath to protect you from the bad guys, issuing press releases on behalf of the biggest crook in the county.
