Pomp and Circumstance: The Tipline for 21 January 2021

Get a job at a US antitrust agency and you get polite congratulations on LinkedIn and a shoutout in Tipline. Get a job at the White House and you get a television special hosted by Tom Hanks with a fireworks finale synchronised to a live Katy Perry song. Lady Gaga may have forgotten to pay homage to departing Federal Trade Commission chair Joseph Simons on Wednesday, but GCR USA would never be so “Shallow”. Also in Tipline, Makan Delrahim makes a list of antitrust proposals on his way out, the Supreme Court takes on media ownership rules and one of Marvel’s Avengers weighs in on who should lead the Antitrust Division.
