NEW: Excerpt in @NYMag from @chrisinsilico’s forthcoming book #Mindf_ck: Cambridge Analytica and the Plot to Break America…
“The [Palantir] staff suggested to Nix that if Cambridge Analytica gave them access to the harvested data, they could then, at least in theory, legally pass it along to the NSA.” #Mindf_ck #TheGreatHack…
“…we used focus groups and qualitative observation to…learn what people cared about — term limits, the deep state, draining the swamp, guns, and the concept of walls to keep out immigrants were all explored in 2014, years before the Trump campaign.” #Mindf_ck
CA Skeptics base their assumptions on the firm being a traditional “consultancy” that produced political ads rather than untraceable, unattributable disinformation operations employing coordinated inauthentic behavior. #TheGreatHack #Mindf_ck…
Gives you a sense of why I was able to take my lawsuit so far in UK courts seeking to recover my complete voter dossier as compiled by CA/SCL. Gives you a sense why they preferred the criminal penalties to actually disclosing the inconvenient truth. #Mindf_ci #TheGreatHack
ICYMI: @Channel4News corroborates @chrisinsilico’s claims of what’s really inside a CA/SCL voter dossier. They showed Colorado voters their #CambridgeAnalytica files. This activity by a UK company in US elections broke UK Data Protection Act of 1998.
We know Facebook knew CA/SCL was “sketchy” before any public reporting thanks to DC AG lawsuit. Despite needing legal certification of data deletion from a known mass data abuser/policy violator, Facebook embedded employees alongside CA/SCL during the 2016 GOP digital operation.
