NPR's business news starts with a record find for Google.
(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)
MONTAGNE: Google is reportedly set to pay a 22 and a half million dollar settlement. That fine would resolve charges that Google snuck past Apple's privacy settings for users of Apple's Safari browser.
According to The Wall Street Journal, this would be the highest fine ever imposed on a single company by the Federal Trade Commission. Google has not admitted to any wrongdoing. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright National Public Radio.
