    And yes, both Facebook and Instagram pushed ads flinging dirt on the opposition. This is real.

    They are nothing but little devilish thiefs, with no moral, no values, and no other reason then to enrich themself and no other goal then to fulfill their superiority complex which translated into politics. Enough of these imbeciles already. As good as dead.

    Cambridge Analytica must be sued for tampering with referendum results. Arron Banks needs to be investigated for his Russian links. His "Leave campaign" was funded by Russians. Farage is on Putin's payroll. Just as all other anti-EU parties. How Arron Banks did it. Explained here.

    Candidate Obama mastered Data Analytics in his two campaigns. The Trump campaign one-upped. It is notable to point out that the contractors in Obama's war on terrorists, informed the contractors that ultimately helped President Trump come out on top. But it wasn't for lack of trying or abusing Data Analytics in the Clinton Campaign. The best campaign, quite simply, won.

    oh, so wonderful- Cambridge Analytica undercover ops exposed the rot of the whole 'western democracy' model- there is no democracy anywhere, just endless behind the curtain struggle for domination using the whole arsenal of 'western democracy' tools: bribes, threats, fake news, prostitutes, secret agents, plausible deniability, Israeli black ops, computer hackers.. but at the end: the shills fool themselves into believing that live in some kind of 'democracy' - ha. amazing.

    This is so scripted! It's impressive how many ppl think a media outlet could get these kind of ppl to say everthing they do that easy (*and especially bc of their field of work*). We are manipulated by the big tech companies that give our data for free for the major intelligence agencies around the world that record everything we do on the internet. This is public knowledge since 2013 when Edward Snowden came forward to become a whistleblower and fled to Russia.

    7:40 Here we see the logic that facts create through the process of reasoning being replaced by technology controlled by the emotions of greed that is being powered by hate to create fear based reactions with no real concern for the future. Here we see a professional company using computers in a way that can only backfire by engaging the emotions of gang mentality and hate to divide the populations of the World emotionally and start a War that will destroy their own environment just as the Maluhia Country Ranches HOA Board members destroyed their own property values thinking the same way intending to increase their wealth by using the US Legal System and law enforcement to steal real estate.
    From the Politicians at the top to the corrupt weak minded Judges, Attorneys, Lobbyists, and police at the bottom doing the dirty work where they are now allowed to hunt and kill at will following orders we do see "emotion" controlling everything just as this moron said. He is showing how his company is removing the Laws that create Order while those at the top have another drink too high on themselves to care thinking violence will always fix the problems they create.
    12:54.... "A long-term and secretive relationship with you (for money in return)" just about says it all and shows why this company and all others like it need to be controlled and shut down immediately as these people are as stated (10:23) military personal working for money (emotional motivated) involved with attempting to control Wars and create physical violence that decided to go independant and work for people overthrowing the Freewill of We the People rather than defend their Country. These people are by definition traitors....

    TRUMP CAmpagn, lol if that is all they are doing then I would be happy but it is far more sinister. They harvest ever bit of data you ever produce and that could end up anywhere.
    People are sadly stupid, anything you see on TV is laced with propaganda but we do not have the capacity to understand what a program is. Sad days

    So, now advertising is telling us they can get voters to elect anyone, even a criminal, incompetent, pathological liar to the Presidency by pure media manipulation. And this is supposed to be progress? This is supposed to further democracy? The only way to short-circuit this that I can think of is to take all money out of politics.

    The Internet is a PUBLIC place. FHS why don't people educate themselves. If you go to the local market and shout out your name dob address clothes size etc etc etc people hear it. If you post anything anywhere on the Internet people read it.
    And as for _influencing_ people and putting _ideas into the bloodstream_ of the Internet to watch it grow, this happens on TV, ALL media, Books, Religions, Politics, the workplace, the local authorities, the police authorities, the military, the government etc etc
    We're supposed to be berating ourselves about the _un-safe-ness_ and the _terrible influence_ of the Internet for one reason only: the people who want to be in control of everything we think say and do are not yet in complete control of it.

    Just recognize the amount of editing that goes into this video and it seems that Channel 4 has a political agenda as well. I can't help but notice how Channel 4 edited these discussions to highlight Brexit and the U.S. 2016 Election. The issue is far deeper and is utilized on both sides of the aisle.
