...Senate's hearing on Ticketmaster...

snippet:

Near the end of the hearing, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., pressed Joe Berchtold, Live Nation’s president and chief financial officer, over how Ticketmaster controls ticket resales on its platform, calling it a monopoly. “You leverage market power in one market to get market power in another,” he said.

This will guarantee that highly connected people like senators continue to have unfair access to the best seats at the biggest events.

The highlights reel I saw on the news afterward was hilarious. I’m not sure how so many Senators used Taylor Swift lyric quotes in their comments while keeping a straight face.

Only their speechwriters knew the quotes - they didn't?

I saw a blurb on the news and it was funny seeing how upset the fan girls were that they couldn't get tix.

That aside the more serious issue is monopolistics.
