Big tech is spending millions to lobby in Washington to target young children with ads on tablets and phones.
In the wake of a series of explosive scandals, it’s widely expected that Congress will pass new privacy legislation in the coming year. Big Tech lobbyists are flooding Washington to water down any bills that might stop them from exploiting personal data for profit.
