States constraining corporations through antitrust law

I believe states should be able to tackle big tech, multinationals, as well colluding companies, by passing legislation that first identifies these companies as predatory monopolies, utilities, or cartels. After that, these companies’ behaviors could be reined in, by insisting that they don’t act in a discriminatory manner on the basis of political persuasion, and they don’t deprive anyone they service, of the standard of free speech, our government must adhere to.

So while it may be difficult for states to constrain an ordinary company to respect its customers’ free speech rights, large companies wielding significant market power, can be declared subject to antitrust law, then they should be able to be constrained by passing state laws, as antitrust laws.
