    "FTC sues Cambridge Analytica...

    Following its announcement of a $5 billion fine for Facebook Wednesday, the Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit against the company at the center of privacy scandal, Cambridge Analytica. The complaint says that the data firm was responsible for 'deceptive acts and practices to harvest personal information from Facebook users.'..."

    PS: Netflix today has a new documentary on Cambridge Analytica called "The Great Hack." Reviews have been very good.
