That's the exact stance to why it's overlooked.

"Because Trump" is the greatest cry to emotion and most don't care thus is ignored.

Just an FYI though, there is evidence of this on the other side as well. It's beyond partisanship.

Just google Robert Mercer, add in Trump, Ted Cruz, Breitbart, and of course Cambridge Analytica.

Original story

(The article is essentially an inisder, Christopher Wylie, spilling the beans about what C/A does)


... big snip ...
The job was research director across the SCL group, a private contractor that has both defence and elections operations.

Its defence arm was a contractor to the UK’s Ministry of Defence and the US’s Department of Defense, among others.
Its expertise was in “psychological operations” – or psyops – changing people’s minds not through persuasion but through “informational dominance”, a set of techniques that includes rumour, disinformation and fake news.

SCL Elections had used a similar suite of tools in more than 200 elections around the world, mostly in undeveloped democracies that Wylie would come to realise were unequipped to defend themselves.


Their know-how works is tried, tested and proven
They've been doing it for years, at any price
Check this out :



There are other dramatic documents in Wylie’s stash, including a pitch made by Cambridge Analytica to Lukoil, Russia’s second biggest oil producer.

In an email dated 17 July 2014, about the US presidential primaries, Nix wrote to Wylie: “We have been asked to write a memo to Lukoil (the Russian oil and gas company) to explain to them how our services are going to apply to the petroleum business.

Nix said that “they understand behavioural microtargeting in the context of elections” but that they were “failing to make the connection between voters and their consumers”.

The work, he said, would be “shared with the CEO of the business”, a former Soviet oil minister and associate of Putin, Vagit Alekperov.

“It didn’t make any sense to me,” says Wylie. “I didn’t understand either the email or the pitch presentation we did. Why would a Russian oil company want to target information on American voters?”


There's more !


In 2014, Steve Bannon – then executive chairman of the “alt-right” news network Breitbart – was Wylie’s boss.

And Robert Mercer, the secretive US hedge-fund billionaire and Republican donor, was Cambridge Analytica’s investor.

And the idea they bought into was to bring big data and social media to an established military methodology – “information operations” – then turn it on the US electorate.


Makes it all sound as though Robert Mercer paid C/A to "do a job" on America !
The article is really good, thanks OP

This is serious stuff, I hope joe public understands what has gone on here.
This should not allowed to be buried.
There's a certain cross section of ATS missing from this thread, can't think why.
Tick Tock.

That's only one part of it, pretty sure bribery of public officials isn't in that order.

Everyone is acting like Cambridge Analytica is the only company that mined and used Facebook data. I am fairly certain this is a regular practice for most companies. Facebook is a treasure trove of data, freely given by its users.

It is big, it is everything rolled into one..and of course the Electoral Commission has something to answer for too.

Thing is, The Guardian has been on this story for a long time, and it will all come back to Cambridge Analytica, Aggregate IQ is the same entity. Please read here for explanation, and yes it involves Farage, the DUP in northern Ireland, and American links.

The problem isn’t Cambridge Analytica: It’s Facebook


Cambridge Analytica’s alleged use of Facebook data for voter targeting pales in comparison with the ways in which Facebook itself exploits its private user data for its own purposes and those of the researchers that collaborate with it,” Leetaru writes. “Instead of holding Cambridge Analytica up as a villain, if society at large has concerns about how their Facebook social media personas can be used to monitor and potentially manipulate them, they should take a closer look at the platform that makes it all possible: Facebook.”




“A central theme of the rhetoric and coverage of Cambridge Analytica is that it somehow violated accepted societal norms over the use of Facebook data, with politicians, regulators and major news outlets referring to it in the cybersecurity parlance of a data “breach.” In fact, this could not be further from the truth in our modern ‘surveillance economy.'”



“A year later in the midst of a stunning election upset and investigations of Russian influence, the tenor towards data-driven politicking has turned upside down… Though, before attributing absolute campaigning power to data, it is important to remember that Cruz’s failed presidential bid relied on the same firm and data that is credited with Trump’s win, calling into question the level of impact it actually had,”

Look how quickly they dig into the datamining when once the right gets in on the game and it goes sour for them.

If they can't monopolize it, then no one can!!

For clarity, who exactly is "they"?


The people who have been controlling the data and manipulating it for their own purposes for a while now. Obama and Hillary both had analytics firms like Cambridge Analytica. What do you think Hillary's "spiritual advisor" actually did? He was head of a datamining and analytics firm that was targeted at so-called values voters (aka Evangelical voters - the deplorables). When the sex scandal came up, she re-assigned the gal rather than ditch him.

Well, that's because Cambridge Analytica got Facebook's data via fraud and scams.

www.theguardian.com...


Facebook’s deputy general counsel has described the data harvesting scheme as “a scam” and “a fraud”. He singled out Kogan, an assistant professor at Cambridge University, as having “lied to us and violated our platform policies” by passing the data on to Cambridge Analytica.

This thread, this breaking story, isn't about Democrats, it isn't about Clinton or Obama so take your whataboutisms elsewhere.

And... There was Clinton's whole Correct the Record team swarming all over social media spamming in order to control the message and sway the election.

Nothing Trump's team did came near to that inundation.

NOOOO.. It's the STEPFORD WIVES who influenced our election.


Great news! Hillary Clinton has finally figured out What Happened! It wasn’t, after all, James Comey or racism or Vladimir Putin or sexism or the hostile media that torpedoed her bid for the White House. Instead, it was…(drumroll please…) millions of Stepford wives, voting the way their husbands told them to.

A more recent update :Cambridge analytica execs boast dirty tricks

Caught on camera by a reporter :


When the reporter asked if Cambridge Analytica could offer investigations into the damaging secrets of rivals, Nix said it worked with former spies from Britain and Israel to look for political dirt. He also volunteered that his team were ready to go further than an investigation.

“Oh, we do a lot more than that,” he said over dinner at an exclusive hotel in London. “Deep digging is interesting, but you know equally effective can be just to go and speak to the incumbents and to offer them a deal that’s too good to be true and make sure that that’s video recorded.

“You know these sort of tactics are very effective, instantly having video evidence of corruption.”

That sounds like Facebook was not getting their cut from whoever was collecting data. That is the only thing that miffed Facebook. They regularly voluntarily sell users' data. I am sure others have also found ways to use the data to their advantage.
