The settlement — backed by the agency’s three Republicans and opposed by its two Democrats


Why why why? So all of this hell raising over children of illegal immigration at the Border but look at this. Hell its only a financial fine and no one goes to prison, but the Democrats didn't even want that. I mean come on. Well I posted the article from the UK as you wont initially find it here among MSM although the Brits story referenced the Washington Post. Ask yourself why is it so hard to seek the truth here in the USA.

Oh and the law they violated was put in place back in the year 2000.

Google



Google inadequately protected kids who used its video-streaming service and improperly collected their data in breach of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, or COPPA, which prohibits the tracking and targeting of users younger than 13, the people said.



The company is expected to pay a multimillion-dollar fine as part of findings it inadequately protected kids who used its video-streaming service



The Federal Trade Commission has finalized a settlement with Google in its investigation into YouTube for violating federal data privacy laws for children, said two people familiar with the matter who were not authorized to discuss it on record.

What do those two dems on the ftc have to do with the many dems that are out fighting for the safety of children on the border?

I don't see the connection unless your trying to say those two dems somehow represent the entire party and make anything a dem has ever done for kids void?
And if that's your stance, well that's just silly.

I'd be happier with this if they were fined multi-million dollars for each child they exploited. And if decades-long prison sentences were served. Must be nice to have a firm grip on the planets balls...

You don't see a connection because there is none. Because if there was a genuine interest by the Democrats in this country TO PROTECT CHILDREN they would have voted in favor of the fine. Take a look at those children exploited or missing along the East Coast. Suburbs around DC are ranks #1. The immigration kid thing is a photo op at best.

I know a company that had to pay $100,000s+ Two months later and system is still not completely back on line. Billion dollar company and its NOT a clown show. Its well run. Expert IT forensic former FED guy said If you have 1000 PCs in an office environment and just one employee forgets to turn off their PC when they go home Ransomware can get in. That's It!

So the government gets a payday by claiming data abuse of children. The government is a never ending victim.

If Democrats were so concerned about the safety of children on the border, then they would change the laws so that there were no children on the border.

But they have no issue piling the bodies of children so high that it would make a border wall...

As long as they can use them for political gain.

Disgusting, is it not?

Are you a Democrat?

Democrats don't care about anyone under voting age. Want to murder your child 1 week before he/she is born? Go to a liberal Democrat state to do it. You might even get a Visa Gift Card at certain Planned Parenthood clinics.

I couldn't agree with you more on that.
