MediaPost: Newly Unredacted Filings Allege Google Ran Manipulated Ad Auctions

MediaPost: Newly Unredacted Filings Allege Google Ran Manipulated Ad Auctions. “A report Friday in the Wall Street Journal said the unredacted information, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges Google created secret programs for manipulating the pricing and processes of its ad auctions, deflating sales for some companies while increasing prices for buyers. Google would then pocket the difference between what it told buyers and sellers an ad cost, and use the pool of money to manipulate future auctions and expand its digital monopoly, the newly unredacted complaint alleges, per the WSJ.”
