We Need an Internet Bill of Rights

The Facebook data scandal. Allegations of Russian “bots” meddling in American elections. Claims of political bias on our digital platforms. Internet-connected devices secretly tracking the most intimate moments of our lives and selling our data to unscrupulous third parties.
