Deceptive Internet ads...
Facebook: In the spotlight over ads from Russian-linked agents.
Senators John McCain, Amy Kolbuchar and John Warner will move on Thursday to force Facebook, Google and other internet companies to disclose who is purchasing online political advertising, after revelations that Russian-linked operatives bought deceptive ads in the run-up to the 2016 election with no disclosure required, Ken Vogel and Cecilia King report on nytimes.com.
But the tech industry, which has worked to thwart previous efforts to mandate such disclosure, is mobilizing an army of lobbyists and lawyers — including a senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s campaign — to help shape proposed regulations, the Times reporters wrote.
