Robert Kennedy Jr. has joined with several other plaintiffs to sue major media outlets for suppressing competition.
The complaint accuses the Washington Post, Associated Press, BBC and Reuters of infringing on antitrust laws by attacking others’ reporting on issues such as COVID-19 and more.
The action alleges the defendants are illegally boycotting some news reports under the guise of a coalition that was intended to crack down on misinformation.
The complaint charges the “Trusted News Initiative,” launched by the BBC only years ago, violates the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890.
That law prohibits industry cartels, price fixing and a variety of other anti-competitive schemes.
Kennedy’s complaint accuses the defendants of conspiring to denigrate conservative talking points about COVID, the vaccinations, treatments including ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, the Hunter Biden laptop and more.

The case outlines how media and tech organizations work together to suppress information with which they disagree.
A new report at the Daily Sceptic explained one charge is from Creative Destruction Media, which charges that Facebook, “blocked all CD Media content after a post that included images of Hunter Biden from LinkedIn and Facebook and stated, ‘we have the Hunter Biden sex tapes … one per hour being released.'”
The tenor of the case is that BBC and others have been suppressing “wholly accurate and legitimate reporting” in order to push forward their own “economic interests.”
The report added, “The BBC has been accused in a Texas court of suppressing competition in the online news market, thereby depriving people of vital information about matters of legitimate public concern. These include COVID-19 lockdowns, safety information about the mRNA vaccines and the Hunter Biden laptop story. TNI was set up in 2019 and acts as a gatekeeper on a number of issues, including Net Zero and the ‘climate emergency’.”
The case explains the legacy media outlets feared for their own economic survival.
The filing accuses TNI members of agreeing to suppress competition, complaining, “Every news company has the right to decide for itself what to publish, but they have no right to combine together to restrict what their rivals can publish.”
The case charges that Big Tech was involved to the point of censoring reporting that did not agree with members’ own claims.
Still being disputed are reports about the Hunter Biden laptop, the origins of COVID, the wearing of masks, more.
The report noted, “A small number of online social media giants have taken over the digital town square and are the beneficiaries of almost all online advertising. They have enormous power to destroy news publishing businesses, as do any media companies that join forces with them.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?
Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?
Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?
No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.
Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.
WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
