Ars Technica: Newly elected Republican senator could be Google’s fiercest critic

Ars Technica: Newly elected Republican senator could be Google’s fiercest critic. “Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley’s defeat of Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in the 2018 midterm elections earlier this month was a big deal from almost any point of view. Missouri was a pivotal swing state in the battle for the Senate, and Hawley’s victory helped Republicans expand their slim Senate majority. But Hawley’s victory is an ominous sign for one company in particular: Google. Hawley campaigned as an antagonist to big technology companies in general and Google in particular.”

Quartz: One of the first two Muslim women in US Congress is already battling a fake news campaign. “The Democratic candidate was resoundingly elected with over 78% of the vote in Minnesota’s 5th congressional district, and along with Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American from Michigan, is poised to become one of two first Muslim women serving in Congress come January. But as busy as Ilhan [Omar]’s been on readying for Capitol Hill, so has the digital sphere where stories of misinformation are being peddled about her, some of which have gone viral on social media platforms.”

The Verge: Sen. Mark Warner On Breaking Up Facebook And Congress’s Plan To Regulate Tech

The Verge: Sen. Mark Warner On Breaking Up Facebook And Congress’s Plan To Regulate Tech. “For the past two years, Silicon Valley has faced a reckoning in Congress, but there’s been no matching push for regulation. While Mark Zuckerberg has been called before Congress and the inner workings of the tech industry have been put under a microscope, no major federal legislation has been passed, leaving some to wonder whether the US government will step in at all. Over the summer, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) put out the most comprehensive plan yet for how Congress might regulate Big Tech: his white paper laid out 20 different suggestions, ranging from labeling bots to implementing broader rules like those in the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It was the most comprehensive effort by any lawmaker, and with it, Warner positioned himself as a key voice in the debate over regulating the tech industry.”

CNET: Senators demand Zuckerberg fix Facebook’s ad transparency tool. “In May, Facebook implemented new rules for political ads, requiring buyers to verify their identification and addresses, and that the ads would have to show who paid for them. The changes echoed what Democratic Sens. Mark Warner of Virginia and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota had pushed for in the Honest Ads Act. But the senators are circling back on the issue following stories from multiple news outlets that reportedly show how easily the new tool could be abused.”
