Washington’s Blog [1]

But the tech giants just threw their support behind a real reform bill.  Specifically, Google, Apple, Microsoft, Yahoo, Facebook and AOL put their support behind the USA Freedom Act [3] … the bill introduced by Senator Leahy and Congressman Sensenbrenner to start reining in the NSA for real [4].

The tech giants aren’t supporting the bill out of the goodness of their hearts, but because cooperating with the NSA has cost them tens of billions of dollars [5]. And see this [6].
