Good morning! After Tim Cook gave a keynote address marking Data Privacy Day, he granted an exclusive interview to my colleague Michael Grothaus. They talked about current and future threats to privacy—which Cook compared to the threat of climate change—and how to address them. Their wide-ranging conversation also turned to technology’s role in igniting extremism, the problem with lumping large technology companies together as “Big Tech,” and more.

Read Michael’s piece for Cook’s frank comments—and to learn why the Apple CEO says he’s ultimately optimistic that the privacy problem is solvable.

Democrats push for monthly stimulus checks: What you need to know
While President Biden and Democratic lawmakers are pushing to get a third round of stimulus checks, this time worth $1,400, out to Americans, almost 60 congressional Democrats have a different idea: They want to give every American a stimulus check every month until the pandemic is over.
The effort is being spearheaded by Democrat Ilhan Omar, Representative of Minnesota’s 5th congressional district. 
She, along with 55 other House Democrats, signed a letter sent to Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris yesterday urging that more needs to be done to help struggling Americans. The lawmakers say one check is not enough.  
Biden is already having trouble getting GOP support for his existing stimulus plan, which comes with a price tag of $1.9 trillion.
