Sara Fischer, Media Reporter at Axios, says the U.S. has held back from regulating technology giants such as Facebook as much as other countries and that the country is due for an ephiphany. This week, reports surfaced that Facebook is tightening controls on advertisers after facing another round of criticism. Most recently, we learned that publishers were allowed to target ads at anti-Semitic groups. And earlier this month the social media giant said Russian firms spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on political ads during last year's U.S. election.
