He has urged the revocation of a key legal shield protecting internet companies from liability over user-generated content. He has also expressed concern over market concentration and privacy issues in the technology industry; criticized Amazon for not paying taxes; and expressed displeasure with Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg.</p><p>His two main advisors on tech policy include Bruce Reed, who served as Biden’s chief of staff from 2011-13, and Stef Feldman, the campaign’s policy director, according to a source with the Biden campaign. Reed and Feldman did not respond to requests for comment via the campaign.</p><p>A spokeswoman for Amazon said the company’s PAC did not contribute to the Biden campaign. She said Amazon supported both the Democratic and Republican National Convention with technology and digital services to increase viewership.</p><p>“We work with each administration in the same way … our approach will not change regardless of who wins the election,” the spokeswoman added.</p><figure class=”article-mad” id=”13/26″><div id=’inArticleDiveId_13′ class=’lazyAds’> <script> $(document).scroll(function(){ if($(‘#inArticleDiveId_13’).length > 0 && !$(‘#inArticleDiveId_13’).hasClass(‘already_loaded’)){ var myElement = document.getElementById(‘inArticleDiveId_13’); if(StreamAdisInViewport(myElement, .5) || StreamAdisInViewport(myElement, 1)){ $(‘#inArticleDiveId_13’).addClass(‘already_loaded’); googletag.cmd.push(function () { googletag.pubads().updateCorrelator(); gptadslots.push(googletag.defineSlot(‘/1039154/NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_Tech/NW18_ENG_Tech_AS/NW18_ENG_TECH_AS_ROS_BTF_728’, [[728, 90]], ‘inArticleDiveId_13’).addService(googletag.pubads()).setCollapseEmptyDiv(true, true)); googletag.display(‘inArticleDiveId_13′); }); } } }); </script> </div></figure><p>Biden campaign spokesman Matt Hill said Joe Biden is against the abuse of power. “Many technology giants and their executives have not only abused their power, but misled the American people, damaged our democracy, and evaded any form of responsibility.

Bundlers are sometimes rewarded with plum positions in their beneficiary’s administration, such as key jobs in federal agencies and influential advisory commissions. Zapolsky has also directly contributed a little over $250,000 to different funds supporting Biden’s presidency, according to campaign finance records. Zapolsky did not comment.</p><p>Meanwhile the Biden campaign’s transition team and working groups have added at least eight people who worked for Facebook, Google, Amazon and Apple and others with ties to these companies.</p><p>A senior policy counsel for a progressive Senate Democrat, who did not wish to be named, said Big Tech’s closeness with the Biden campaign is worrying. The battle for the left wing of the Democratic party on this issue will be on whether they can get crucial appointments in the administration and less about moving Biden toward progressive options, the aide added.</p><figure class=”article-mad” id=”21/26″><div id=’inArticleDiveId_21′ class=’lazyAds’> <script> $(document).scroll(function(){ if($(‘#inArticleDiveId_21’).length > 0 && !$(‘#inArticleDiveId_21’).hasClass(‘already_loaded’)){ var myElement = document.getElementById(‘inArticleDiveId_21’); if(StreamAdisInViewport(myElement, .5) || StreamAdisInViewport(myElement, 1)){ $(‘#inArticleDiveId_21’).addClass(‘already_loaded’); googletag.cmd.push(function () { googletag.pubads().updateCorrelator(); gptadslots.push(googletag.defineSlot(‘/1039154/NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_Tech/NW18_ENG_Tech_AS/NW18_ENG_TECH_AS_ROS_BTF_728’, [[728, 90]], ‘inArticleDiveId_21’).addService(googletag.pubads()).setCollapseEmptyDiv(true, true)); googletag.display(‘inArticleDiveId_21′); }); } } }); </script> </div></figure><p>Republican Senator Josh Hawley, a close ally of Trump and a vocal critic of large tech companies, said the progressives may get a “rhetorical nod in their direction now and then,” but the Biden campaign’s fundraising shows the progressives will struggle. “For Amazon in particular to be featured at a political convention is really, really worrisome,” Hawley told Reuters. “It’s taking their lobbying to a whole new level.”</p><p>To be sure, many large technology companies – their employees, PAC’s or PAC members – have been top contributors to Democratic presidential campaigns in the past three election cycles, with one notable exception: Amazon. However, contributions from the Seattle-based retailer’s employees have now made Amazon the fifth largest contributor to the Democratic nominee’s candidate campaign committee, according to data from OpenSecrets and campaign finance records. Large technology companies are entirely missing from the Trump campaign committee’s top 20 contributors list.</p><p>Donations from senior Amazon executives to the Biden campaign during the primaries were second only to Microsoft, according to data from the Revolving Door Project, which is part of the Center for Economic and Policy Research.</p><p>“I think all the fundraising we are seeing is probably going to buy them (Amazon) access, but in terms of policy results, I think it’s going to buy them very little,” said an advisor on tech policy to the Biden campaign, who did not wish to be named. “There is a lot of collective outrage against tech in Washington these days, and they simply cannot fly under the radar.”</p> </article> <div class=”queryvideo” style=”display:none;”>Array<br /> (<br /> )<br /> </div> <div id=”web920x130_ros”></div> <div class=”article-share” style=”border-top: 1px dotted #939393;padding: 10px 0;
