  • Ever wonder how Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election? One company helped propel him to the top by entering your social media feeds and use your data to influence your vote. Cambridge Analytica, a data-mining company which uses psychographics as a way to persuade voters, is extending their reach into the smallest cracks of your life so you can choose their client - in this case, Donald Trump. How is this possible and how much privacy do you really have online? Watch to find out.

    Obama also had a huge and innovative online campaign, yet it wasn't portrayed as sinister, but rather something to learn from and emulate.

    You’re right sir! Trump spent far less than Clinton, because Russia funded it all! You’re are about to witness the biggest conspiracy in American history!

      Yes, and its me, because I am Russian. I hacked all your democracy. Sue me.

    • David Ward

      yarrn88 The President did just sanction 13 Russians and 3 Russian companies recently that Mueller indicted as part of the ongoing investigation. Also, Cambridge Analytica consists of hundreds of employees and as we recently found out, they did the leg work to know exactly what audiences to target to supply the fake news and articles that looked the part as legit because they created websites to match it and use real people and bots to validate them. So if that one person consists of all these different people and companies being financed by billionaires then I guess it is just one person.

    • yarrn88

      So democracy is useless if some Russian kid can hack the whole thing just for several millions of bucks. And whats wrong with advertising some websites, like it never happened before? Not that I buy your nonsense gibberish, but make it at least sound consistent. Its democracy you always claimed to embrace, enjoy your democracy and shut up, thank you.

      yarrn88 @ well seeing how they was able to target over 150,000,000 million Americans with fake news and links to fake websites that was paid for with tens of millions to create a political and racial divide, I’d say that nonsense you speak of will come into play once this is all said and done. The only question now is how did the Russians get a hold of this data?!

      David Ward have you seen which memes have been attributed to that argument?
      A couple of goofy memes by posted by random Russian trolls, likely didn't carry notable shift if any in the outcome.
      however there is a direct threat which should genuinely arise concern in us citizens *(ALL OF US, -from any/every political ideology) regarding working& lower-class losing clout in thee direction of this "democracy" :
      this threat is the owner class, those who a lot of people have been employed by yet still struggle to make ends meet because employers have kept wages stagnant, while the cost-of-living increases. & most citizens can't afford medical treatment without it resulting in unnecessary medical debt which is impossible today with all the other expenses even if one has two Jobs; college debt, predatory lending, House foreclosures, increasingly older age of retirement, privacy invading technologies have evolved but privacy protection laws haven't kept up, etc. and so much more are exploited without limitation by the owner class

      - The people who refuse to pay us a living wage, they can afford to buy our politicians; they have.
      both parties financed in large part by the same mega-rich corporate "donors"
      I don't care who you vote for nor the party, or even policies you support: I just really hope you're aware of their voting history (& if it aligns with the policy wishes of the working-class)
      & whether their campaign is propped up by A community of small dollar donors .. or Big money; corporate bribery.

      Manly Maniac @ no one knows about the tens of millions him and Robert Mercer spent with Cambridge Analytica until now. There is no telling how much other money was spent in various places that went unreported like this and to top it off it was all spent to spread fake news and divide America smh!
