many people understood the extent of it until the cambridge analytica scandal revealed just how much facebook data has shared. up until now there haven't been very many laws on the books protecting consumers. >> thank you. lawmakers say big soda companies forced them to drop soda taxes. voters in san francisco, oakland and berkeley have already approved soda taxes with the simple majority. other california cities were planning similar measures but then the companies got enough signatures for a statewide initiative that would require a two-thirds vote for any local taxes and they were threatening to put it on the november ballot. >> this was a tactic of political extortion. they got the signatures on something that they thought voa ballot measure on one topic to force us to vote on a measure that
