“Facebook, Cambridge Analytica, and the Need to Legalize Privacy,” TODAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

Facebook allowed users who installed an app to harvest data on 50 million people. The data was turned over to Cambridge Analytica, which used it for commercial and political purposes. Did Facebook do anything wrong? Anything for which it should be legally culpable? These questions and more on today’s show. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.
