Bill to protect children online ensnared in encryption fight

A bipartisan pair of senators today introduced legislation recently called the EARN IT Act, meant to combat child sexual exploitation online. However, critics worry that the bill is a vehicle to block the tech industry’s efforts to implement end-to-end encryption. Sen. Josh Hawley, one of the co-sponsors, accused tech companies of bringing up the issue of encryption to derail the legislation.
