Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Senate bill S.686, the RESTRICT Act, is being touted to stop foreign spying through apps like TikTok, but many activists and organizations are warning it is a danger to basic American freedoms.  The bill, sponsored by Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and cosponsored by legislators from both parties, is meant to thwart national security risks by cracking down on communications technology developed by foreign adversaries.  Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) warned on Twitter: “FACT  The TikTok bill is a Trojan Horse. Prepare for the Patriot Act,” citing an article about the bill.  Greg Price, State Freedom Caucus Network communications director, condemned the bill saying it is “absolutely terrifying.”
