The privacy debate is starting to pit tech against tech

This week in Brussels, Apple CEO Tim Cook lambasted what he calls the “data-industrial complex” created by the tech industry, calling for the United States to adopt comprehensive digital privacy regulations. Apple has stressed privacy as a selling point over the past couple of years, but this was a broadside at a couple of the other biggest tech firms in the world, namely Facebook and Google. It's worth noting that it's easy for Apple to tout privacy when the option it's offering is a closed ecosystem where the company controls every aspect of the technology. We dig into this in Quality Assurance, the Friday segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story. Molly talked with Tony Romm, a tech policy reporter at The Washington Post. (10/26/18)
