Cambridge Analytica Uncovered: Propaganda, Bribery And Prostitutes

A fantastic investigation by Channel 4 News in the United Kingdom, exposing the clandestine activities of Cambridge Analytica, the controversial British data-mining firm. In the clip below, representatives of the company boast of operating “in the shadows”, working for their clients with former members of the UK intelligence agencies MI5 and MI6, gathering information while spreading misinformation and black propaganda (something Britain’s officials and spies have proved rather adapt at). At a later date they discuss the use of deniable front organisations and associates, the entrapment and blackmail of politicians, and the use of “Ukrainian” sex workers to achieve their objectives. The report follows hard on the heels of a related exposé by the Guardian (Observer) newspaper over the weekend.
