A growing piece of that, of course, are political ads. And, of course, those placing the ads usually would prefer to remain anonymous. So much of politics is a stealth game.
Therefore, the social networks are very concerned about the proposed bipartisan bill S.1989 - nicknamed the "Honest Ads Act." That would require full disclosure in a public database about the people or organizations purchasing political ads of more than $500.
The bill is sponsored by Mark Warner (D), Amy Klobuchar (D), and John McCain (R). Here are details from Odwyerpr.com.
