U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton is drawing attention today for criticizing Apple CEO Tim Cook for statements on "60 Minutes" over government access to encrypted data.

Cook said on "60 Minutes" that strong encryption was important and that he opposed government "backdoors" to access the data.

Cotton said that, if companies like Apple, Google and Facebook, have a greater degree of protection than phone companies "we can expect them to become the preferred messaging services of child pornographers, drug traffickers, and terrorists alike."
