Just met a director named Maria: The Tipline for 18 May 2023

The last time the Federal Trade Commission named a director for its office of international affairs, Bob Barker still hosted The Price is Right, The Sopranos still aired through cable cords and Google and DoubleClick still operated as separate companies. Earlier this week, FTC chair Lina Khan made Maria Coppola the office’s director after she served in the role in an acting capacity since June. “Our agency has long valued and deeply invested in its international partnerships, and Maria's commitment to that tradition is second to none,” Khan said in an email to staff. Also in Tipline, the FTC doubles down on its scrutiny of pharmaceutical benefit managers and another slaughterhouse settles with the Department of Justice.
