Author Jonathan Taplin (@jonathantaplin) argues that internet companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon grew so quickly that they took over American culture and broke its democracy.

Taplin speaks with Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti about his new book "Move Fast And Break Things: How Facebook, Google and Amazon Cornered Culture and Undermined Democracy."
