"There are all sorts of reasons and ways to hate on big internet
companies these days, but as we've warned, some of them are in conflict
with one another -- though that doesn't seem to stop those who keep
pushing the narrative forward from blindly repeating them anyway. The
latest is a positively bonkers article in the Wall Street Journal
arguing that Google's (somewhat middle of the road) support for DNS over
HTTPS (DoH) is potentially an antitrust violation worthy of
Congressional action.

This is (1) utter nonsense and (2) driven by telcos looking to undermine
consumer privacy. So if you're a pro-privacy Google hater, you might
want to at least reconsider supporting this particular line of attack."
