We're joined for more on this by mortals health and science correspondent cambridge university religious. Dr christmas to discuss the story which just doesn't seem to go away. Chris often thanks for being with us as always. Just tell us first of all. So why exactly has this. Trial been posed. The story begins in the last month or so. When a number of countries documented an association between a rare form of blood clotting and specifically the cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. These these are the particular blood vessels that you have inside your head that drained out to the brain and they do rarely form blood. Clots this happens to about fifteen people in every million in the population in general and often. It's more common in younger people and more common in younger women but what was noticed was there appeared to be a handful of people who had just had astrazeneca's vaccine and presented with this problem and in the uk when our regulator the nhra has looked out of about twenty million doses. That have been administered. If that vaccine there are about thirty people who have presented with blood clots in their heads about seven people have passed away and those people are chiefly young people and for that reason. The trial was going on at the moment in order to test. The effectiveness of astrazeneca's vaccine in young children has been paused in order to appraise this. Because what we don't know yet.

Is there a link between the AstraZeneca vaccine and blood clots?
"Suspected linked to the development of a rare syndrome involving the formation of blood. Clots in the brain's blood vessels led to eighteen european countries temporarily halting their use of astrazeneca's covid nineteen vaccine pending an investigation. By the way the european medicines agency the itself though while it investigates is urging nations to continue to use the vaccine which has been so far administered to over seventeen million people going to the very real threat posed by massive surges and covid nineteen cases across europe that said some countries like belgium in the uk elected. Not interrupt their vaccine. Roll outs the aura. Which regulates medicines in the uk has also carried out its own investigation reached a very reassuring conclusion. Our view shows that there is no difference. That blood clots in veins are occurring more than would be expected in the absence of vaccination for either vaccine we have also received five reports of different a rare form of blood clot in the cerebral sinuses cerebral sinus vein thrombosis all csv t occurring together with lowered blood platelets shortly after vaccination with the covert nineteen vaccine astrazeneca. This type of blood clot can rarely occur naturally in unvaccinated people as well as in people with covid nineteen disease. A further review of these events is ongoing but a causal relationship with the vaccine has not yet been established. I'm hr hfc's june rain there. She was addressing the number ten downing street press conference earlier this week so there is still some uncertainty around this but in the end what it all comes down to is balancing risk the risk from a very rare and possibly completely unconnected medical condition versus the relatively much bigger risk of succumbing to covid nineteen infection.

University's david spiegelhalter specializes in things quite complicated. Because the story is it was ran. Last week was by blood. Clots like deep-vein thrombosis and other things and i looked to that data. What was being reported by astra zeneca. Aaron tim visits the number of Adverse reactions they didn't like anything special tool but it since come out that the actual actual real concern is from norway and germany in particular is is a particular special full of thromboses known as herbal venus sinus thrombosis associated with low platelets so this is clearly a razz syndrome and germany particular. They've at one point six million vaccines and had six seven cases of something like this and tends to be in younger women and in some so i can understand that. There is a concern about Yesterday vaccine but policymakers have to make decisions all the time. Don't they about What you're going to do and what the cost might be and what you're not going to do. And what the cost might be and it is really important not to jump the baby out with the biological bathwater because by deferring vaccination while you investigate a very remote risk of something happening you end up costing people the chance to be vaccinated in the interim one commentator in france pointed out that for every hundred thousand people. You don't vaccinate over the age of fifty four one day that will translate into five deaths. I haven't checked that statistic but it does sound plausible.
How Does Cuttlefish Camouflage Work?
"Cuttlefish be cephalopods stunning ability to instantly change color and texture to blend into their surroundings. Have another newly discovered trick. Researchers have found that these squidgy creatures can freeze their camouflage palette and lock it in place for up to an hour without any energy consuming input from their main nervous system that superpower to hold their disguise for long periods to avoid being detected and thus to avoid being eaten it also helps them snatch their own prey as they can remain essentially invisible as they lie in wait. The finding published in the journal is science not only reveals yet. Another clever strategy of these ocean floor dwelling masters of disguise. It also lends further guidance for engineers hoping to borrow from the animals tricks to develop new technologies such as much that can spring into three dimensions and soft bodied robots. That could say wrap around a human leg to provide support as with many discoveries. Scientists stumbled upon this one nearly by accident. The researchers were working at the marine biological laboratory in whole massachusetts. They were trying to trace. How the cuddle. Fishes nervous system directs. Its skin to transform its three d texture within seconds to blend into the background of say Kelp or iraq when these sliced through one of the two main nerves that runs along the side of a cuttlefish expected. The animal would lose. Its camouflage on the corresponding side of that narrative but instead the three dimensional texture provided by nodes on the skin of the cuttlefish called pathway stayed intact we spoke with trevor ward hill co author of the study and a neuroscientist at the university of cambridge. He said it was really quite surprising. In fact when i saw it generally when you cut input to a muscle it just relaxes and that's the end of it. We thought we did something wrong. But repeat takes. The procedures showed. The phenomenon was no fluke. The animals by the way. We're not killed by the procedure and we're able to continue swimming and feeding in a tank at the nba l. facility.

My business account is optimized. You know and i mean we trust me just. We get started in one month but even when we sign on clients we tell them. Hey you gotta give us at least three months for you to really start. Seeing all of these efforts picking up right and that's just digital marketing. Just how it works because we can sell you the world but it's not. I'm dependent on us. You know what i mean would search engine optimization for example we can be doing everything we can for the package that we sold you but if somebody if your competitor is spending five or ten times more on odds van for those same keywords than they already have an advantage but again but that's where everything kind of comes together as a package and that's where you really want to figure out okay. Let's say you wanna do the online presence package. We will get you through this journey where you're going to end up with an amazing website that converts you're going to end up with great social media platform ages with followers were hosting for you every single day. Wise the day right. It's relevant content branded content. It speaks with your audience. We are hosting in groups for engaging feeble. you know we're creating back links for were zooming search engine optimization both on the website as well as off the website ongoing words doing online review management.

You're seeing that your cost per click for your ads is going down and now you're getting more results from the same ad budget or even lower than what you had right so when you're able to show them those tangible results then that's really the best way that you can then sell services and because you already have these people that are telling about youths through their friends and their colleagues right and i'm lucky enough to be in a community where our small business community is very very involved and everyone knows each other really really well. I'm so it's kind of like you. Start picking up speed then it snowballs right because it's all about word of mouth and that's really what i preach Yes we're marketing agency. And yes. we focus on digital marketing but networking is my big thing. Because it's all about connections right whether those connections are live connections or whether those connections that you're forming on link then ride or on facebook or on the digital World as well so it's really just all about connections that yeah that's kind of how we were able to start know seeing a lot more success by able to show those angelo results and people were like okay. I see what these guys got from you. So how do i get in you. Know right and ukraine talk about a few different approaches. You search engine optimization. Which as you mentioned you expect overnight success story i mean you can make tangible differences quickly it seo but it is a marathon not a sprint and matter of a snowball effect in the more you work. As more success you'll see in cambridge You're gonna invest more. You might get a faster response if you do it. Well and i can take some testing before you get there. It's just nature of the game it to any kind of advertising. that's test when it comes to advertising. You tested those at work you you you try something else and shot you. You have data experience but made the promise to getting kind of dig into your brain a little bit of. How are you getting your clients. These days because i understand you're doing a lot of that to lengthen and a lot of people saying i would love to learn how to use link and tap into that huge resource of business professionals. How do i get started in their opener. On question absolutely i will go into lengthen like to say that at this point we are not doing lengthened generation For ourselves just because the referrals are coming in so quickly that i am just working on keeping up with the referral. So i'm not a place. That is an amazing place to be Ring thin is definitely a huge wade sues. Dr generating leads. It does take a little bit of time. But especially when you're just starting out It's an incredibly affordable and effective way to get leads on something before you heard. Yes out you know i love. Is you said there about referrals because you you talked about. Making connections and connections you real word their relationships because you're not going to get a referral from somebody you haven't built that no like entrust actor was so clearly you're doing the once you make connections. There's a little bit more than say he. I have five thousand connects linked. Then nobody cares. I have five thousand people. I'm actually communicating with you like me. They responded engage. That's a whole different ballgame. And so i just want to make that assessment there because if you're getting all referrals that's it shows the power of getting started and then making that transition so he's pointed out before we dive into lengthened side of things. I think for here what you wish you had in front of you to get you down to past. Before he hit the fully referred type business. You have now. Yeah and you know what we did with lincoln. As far as lead generation we were before covid using a lot or selling event vendor booths as well as event sponsorships. So as i mentioned we are in event marketing company and a well marketing agency that specializes in event marketing at this point so we hosted over fifty different types of events and twenty nineteen and a lot of those were exposed with different types of vendor booths and sponsors and so that was something where we constantly needed new people and we were constantly doing lead generation. Rival lengthened was amazing for that. And i actually developed training that i was teaching team on how to do this on my so basically it all starts with. Let's say you are brand new. Let's say you don't even have a lincoln account get right used by setting it up right you start by putting in as much information as you possibly can make sure that your bio looks good. Make sure that your bio highlights your skills your experience as well as your passions right if you don't have much experience but a lot of the people that are on my team are very young you know i have a great relationship with our local college and so i get a lot of insurance and then after three months i hired them right by i get them and they do not have a lot of experiences. We work on writing their byles together. It's really about while okay. Maybe you don't have much to talk about yet. But what are you passionate about. Would you truly enjoy doing right. Would you see yourself during so things like really matter as well because at the end of the day you want to tell people who you are as a person not necessarily just list your resume. That's not what the really wanna see right. And then of course in your experience yes you will put whatever positions mad and yes the more experience you have the better ride but at the same time it's still about personality still about is kind of like a cover letter right when you're applying for a job a lot of employers myself included. I care more about the cover letter. Then the resume itself because it's not as much about the experience that you have as it is about the attitude that you have and the mindset that you have and from. You went hiring if i can see that you have a good attitude and that i can train you than i don't care. It could never work in this industry or gun. What i'm hiring to you. Because i can sell that you will be able to do it with the right training. So that's kind of how you want to set up your length and you want to bring that out there. You want to be warm and genuine. Be yourself and then of course you also want to have a very professional. Had sean right. If it's not a professional headshot please get one or at least say a very clean image of yourself. You know. Just right about here right. Like short was shoulders above. Do not good something where you know. You're holding your baby or something like that. It's just it's not the platform you know what i mean. There's i'm gonna play. This is something where people are coming to see you as a professional. So you want to eat

I didn't know the good doctor. I don't believe there was a racist bone in his body or a sexist bone in his body. Everything he wrote seem very innocents. And we have to remember this was in different time. A different era. 2017, a school librarian, and Cambridge, Massachusetts, criticized the gift of 10 Dr Seuss books. Why? Well, I'll tell you why? Because they came from the first lady Melania Trump. Saying many of his works were steeped and racist propaganda characters and harmful stereotypes. O Lord.

"Mary frank johnson. Welcome to technician. It's great to speak with you. Thanks so much. Peter i always enjoy talking with you. I do as well so please on the record at this point. I'm i'm as somebody who is a luminary ao space. You do not need a big introduction with my audience. I don't imagine but you are perhaps best known. As former editor in chief of cio magazine the the moderator of the cio leadership live broadcast which is just a phenomenal phenomenal series of interviews with with leaders in the tech space x os with a healthy dose of course of chief information officers as the name suggests and a prolific writer. Somebody who's wisdom. I know my team. And i have have gained mightily from across the years as well so i'm so pleased to to have this more formal conversation after many many informal ones with you okay. Well thanks very much peter. I we've got a lot of great stuff to talk about indeed indeed wipe. We begin at the beginning at least as relevant to the cio space. You're not somebody who grew up with immersed in technology You are somebody who The written word came the more easily to the dentist too many others. Perhaps and and you were focused on journalism. I wonder what was what was the genesis of your time In focusing your skills on the cio. Space okay thanks. Exxon question and i love telling the story because i think that it reflects so much of how many of the it leaders cio's that we both know today ended up in the positions that you know they were music majors or they majored in english literature and history and then they got really interested in data side of things for me. I had started out. I spent ten years at daily newspapers. In florida and ohio in washington state and i reported on everything from city and county commission beats to k twelve education to police even state politics when i was two bureau chief for gannett news service out in columbus ohio and then we were moving to the boston area in nineteen eighty nine. My husband was an atmospheric scientist and he was taking a job in cambridge and so naturally i went reached out to the boston globe and to the boston herald and the it was. Nobody was hiring. So i was. We were arriving in the boston area. And i had heard about a very vibrant technology publishing world here and so i had examined it somewhat and made some phone calls A lot of this was so far before the days of regular emails. And you know we weren't living on our phones. Then so i was just applying my reporter skills to it. And i ended up getting a copy of computerworld mailed to me and sat there. I remember sitting there in my living room in ohio looking through it and feeling somewhat reassured that i could understand about what have the stories were about And then on the drive from ohio to massachusetts. I basically grill my husband One side down the other about the computer industry. Because i was coming into it only knowing that ibm made typewriters and the rest of it was kind of a big mystery. But i had been using some of the very early unix. That was vi editor on unix. That you could use to do work on. He had some sun workstations and very early versions of sun and unix workstations at our house and so i used that a little bit. And i remember when i was in my interview for the computer job with The executive and executive editor in the editor chiefs of computerworld. I think they were very impressed. That i was referring to things like vi editor in youth so but computerworld at always hired. They hired reporters who could learn the beat. And i think that's pretty much the way almost everybody on the tech journalism side got into it. They were journalists bite training. Then they do. They dove into their beats. Because one of the things we discovered trying to hire people over the years if you try to higher in a technical person and hand the technology beat they wouldn't know the story angle with fell on them so it was really important if you were genuinely out there reporting And then i found enjoyed it. I just enjoyed it so much and by the time i was a couple years into my job at computer world when the boston globe was to interview people and hire all. But i wouldn't left for anything at that point it just it was such a. I just enjoyed the way. The story kept changing and advancing and moving forward.

"Literal campaign Cambridge Analytica collected personal data from tens of millions of facebook users and used it to target people susceptible to conspiracy stories and disinformation Christopher Wiley was the research director of Cambridge analytica before leaving in protest over the direction it had taken when he joined the company its goal was countering extremists extremists using social media to find potential converts the things that I was building you know originally for the defensive the democracy had been completely converted to really in my view attack our democracies while has written a new book and Ken Tucker Reviews the first solo album from Brittany Howard the lead singer of Alabama shakes my guest became a whistle blower exposing the role of the British voter profiling company Cambridge Analytica in the trump presidential campaign and the brexit campaign Christopher Wiley revealed how the company at harvested the information of tens of millions of facebook users and combine that with other data decorate psychological profiles and then use those profiles to target susceptible to disinformation racist thinking and conspiracy theories Cambridge Analytica then helped shape the disembarkation narratives and push them out while he also revealed Cambridge analytic has links to Russia while they had the documents and tapes back him up he'd served his Cambridge analytic as search director for a year and a half then quit in twenty fourteen disturbed by the direction it started taking after Steve Bannon became a major player in the company widely became the chief source for a year long investigation into Cambridge Analytica jointly undertaken by the British paper The Guardian and The New York Times Both papers published their stories on March seventeenth last year ten days later widely was called before parliament testify after that several U s US Congressional and Senate committees asked to talk with him within weeks the EU and more than twenty countries had opened inquiries into facebook social media and discipline mation while he has written a new book whose Title I can't say on the radio so I'll just call it mind F- Cambridge Analytica and the plot to break America Christopher Wiley Welcome to fresh air I let me Oh it's my pleasure I'd like to start with a brief overview of how Cambridge analytica figured into the trump campaign and we'll get into more detail about this later brick just so we have a basis of understanding of what what did the basis of Cambridge analytic is mark was essentially to take Large amounts of highly granular data about each individual voter in the United States urge bulk of that came from facebook it came from many sources and to look for patterns in that data to essentially infer different psychological attributes and from that to find target groups of people particularly on the fringes of society who would be more vulnerable to certain kinds of messages they focused on a lot on disinformation are they targeted people who are more prone to conspiratorial thinking and they use that data and they use based on social media more broadly to first identify those people and then engage those people and really begin to crafts in my view wasn't insurgency in the United States feeding them disinformation sometimes conspiracy theories in support of the trump campaign yes and more broadly the when Steve Bannon took over he wasn't just concerned about particular elections he followed sort of this notion of the art doctrine which is that politics exists downstream from culture so don't just focus on the day to day politics try to actually make an impact on injuring Asian culture because politics will just flow from that when you say when Steve Bannon took over he had a big role in Cambridge Analytica and then became campaign manager for for trump yes he did he he found us in in London he convinced the billionaire to acquire the company and then he the company into you know a set of tools that he'd be able to use to in effect manipulate certain segments of the American voter population so I want to talk about your contribution to this before you became a whistle blower so you want to work for a company called Seal Strategic Communication Laboratory raise what were they when you join what's their relationship to Cambridge Dental Annika young so I got a recruited to join a recent each team at seal group which at the time was a British military contractor Based in London most of its clients were various ministries offense in NATO countries and what we were looking at is how to use data online to identify people who be likely targets of different extremist groups and from that Try to understand impact how woods AH fairly extreme ideological message spread through different kinds of social networks and what could we do in order to mitigate its its effectiveness when Steve Bannon got introduced to the company he realized that a lot of that work could be inverted and rather then trying to mitigate an extremist insurgency in certain parts of the world he wanted to essentially catalyze one in the United States this one of your major contributions to Cambridge analytica which started off as SC L. Yeah so one of your major contributions was to find this technique of personality profiling that you thought could be applied to the clown of Work Cambridge Analytical was doing can you describe that personality profiling approach yeah so you know when you think about all of the things that you put online so whether it's you know you're what TV shows you like who are you know what's what movies you watch or what you listen to these are all little discreet clue news about sort of who you are as a person and you know originally when we were looking at this for defense purposes we want it's you figure out beyond what the military had already identified which was essentially young unmarried males with certain demographic characteristics what were this sort of psychological character mystics of those people that would make them more prone and more vulnerable to certain kinds of of messaging so that we can engage them beforehand that was based on a series of studies as many of which came out of the University of Cambridge that looked at essentially how particularly with facebook data you can quite accurately predict a person it's personality profile and from that if you can understand how a person thinks and feels engages in the world and what kinds of biases we have you can then figure out what's going to be most effective at engaging them in a particular objective so originally in some kind of counter extremism or mitigations strategy later when it became journalistic it essentially became identifying people who in the same way that you'd be looking for people who'd be more vulnerable old CEO Isis messaging people who were more prone co conspiratorial thinking or you know paranoid idea in effect it looked for the same kinds of people but rather than discouraging them from joining Isis it would be to encourage them to join the alright you had to figure out a way to harvest data that you could use to create personality profile so that you'd know who to target and a lot of the data came from facebook how to Cambridge Analytica get the data you know when the when the story blew up one of the things that bowl kind of often talked about is how it was a hack facebook or some kind of data breach and what actually happened was that facebook authorized the applications that came analytica ended up using to access the data the company engaged Professors at the University of bridge to create an application that then got put onto facebook where people would go and fill out personnel the inventories like surveys about you know who they are and their attributes but the way the AP words was that they wouldn't harvest the data of the person who responded survey but it would go into their profile and look at all of their friends and harvest all of their friends data as well so when you had one person fill out a survey by default they effectively consented by proxy for you know hundreds of other people simply because they were facebook friends with them so that scaled really quickly and at the time facebook the way facebook worked they allowed applications to have that feature they've since turned it off and rightfully so but at the time you could acquire a lot of data really quickly because with each respondent to that survey you'd get another sort of three hundred profiles with it in return fulfilling out the personality profile you were given like a couple of dollars or something yeah so some you know different kinds of people have different motivations for Philly out surveys so you know sometimes you would have a group of people who just would fill it out because they're bored they don't have anything to do or they just genuinely.

"They pitch them the whole cambridge analytica pitch on how they can do it better and and they got the gig and she actually drafted the contract because she's a lawyer as well for cambridge and the trump campaign so she was definitely definitely integral part of that operation and was a was a right hand to alexander knicks the c._e._o. In terms of how they then parlayed getting trump contract and trump's victory into doing things all over the world as well so just in winding down. I i want to come back to facebook because there's a character sure. I don't remember who it is but someone in the movie says that at the end of the day. It's not really about cambridge etiquette. It's about the tech platforms as long as there are these tech platforms that are unregulated regulated or underregulated. You're gonna have cambridge analytic as doing the kinds of things they did so mark zuckerberg is in the museum in the movie. He testifies for congress at the end of the day having done this movie. Do you think that zuckerberg facebook. The other platforms are going to change their ways that they we'll be regulated in ways that deal with some of these kinds of challenges desperately sign five billion dollars stock when that same the stock drop in the bucket they made a billion billion dollars off as as cara swisher says as a parking ticket look. I think that we have to understand in my opinion. That facebook has become a crime scene. That's just the reality of what's happened and we have we have rule rule of law which is how we've maintained western civilization this long and we should use the rule of law to actually understand what's happened and hold power accountable as we always have have just because it's happening in this fear of technology does not mean that it should be above the rule of law the problem has been is that we're dealing with these borderless monopolistic tech platforms that don't operate under the auspices of one country another mar. The british parliament was unable to get mark zuckerberg to even show go up and attend their investigation. The conclusion of the parliamentary increase at the election laws are not fit for purpose and called facebook digital gangsters. I mean this is british. Parliament isn't tabloids like this is what we're dealing with and yet there's no accountability the way it's being framed from facebook's perspective perspective is cambridge analytic <hes> or these bad actors. They broke into the they broken in the middle of the night. They stole people's things and yet happened on our watch. We're like we didn't have the security alarm system on and we're so sorry guys. We'll do better next time. That is baloney. The reality is is that cambridge analytica yes. He understood how to use the facebook data data but the weaponization of information that's facebook. The weapon is facebook's algorithm. The brilliant is facebook algorithm not cambridge analytica so with cambridge gone so now we are just as vulnerable if not more vulnerable than we were in two thousand sixteen and we've got twenty twenty around the corner and nothing has been done to protect.

Thanks for having us so much to talk about in this film the use of personal data that we all put on facebook and other social media platforms and how how it is now used to manipulate us in political campaigns what got you interested in wanting to do this movie giant it goes goes way back from me the my fascination with tack and also information and dissemination of information and how it affects our reality so in two thousand and one i released a film called startup dot com which was when everybody wanted to start an internet company and bhagat online and we were basically filming a company that was putting government online and we watched as these two guys raised sixty million dollars and then everything crashed and then soon after that in two thousand four. I made a film called control room. I wish you well remember about al jazeera and the iraq war right and so what was fascinating to me about that subject was that i had family and friends in egypt and in the u._s. and depending on what station they were watching whether it was two zero or fox or c._n._n. They had a different completely different view of reality study of what the war kind of like americans now but now it's like control room on steroids so you can be in the same household but have your own personalized personalized news feed and have a completely different view of what's going on and so how could people have a conversation with each other so that was sort of watching that was was salaam felt like this was an area that i should jump back into <hes> and then after control room. I made a film with my partner. Kareem called the square which was about the egyptian revolution and in that film we saw how these various aim tech platforms were incredible tools for change holding government accountable honorable bringing together people to imagine a future together and massing people bringing people together in a way that never had happened before and silicon valley took a lot of credit for those tools and for bringing about the arab spring and <hes> and so you know i it was an incredible moment.

"Into the context of the republican presidential primary and then the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign so first of all cambridge did not start off working for trump they started off working for ted cruz and a ted cruz superpac because that's who the mercer family was supporting at the time the cambridge got a sort of reputation in republican circles as the mercer's somewhat odd pet project and that if you wanted a lot of cash from the mercer's you should retain cambridge to like do this stuff but then people who worked with them oftentimes weren't particularly impressed with what they actually managed to do the cruise team said that they thought that the cambridge's modeling just was not reliable personality modeling or predictive data on voting was was just not useful and and they infect stopped using it in around february twenty sixteen and had a fight with them over money and so on so then this is basically get ten dollars from robert mercer you give two or three of them to cambridge and then at least the mainstream republican pros which is kind of roll their eyes yes this is yeah this is something that the that charles coke has been doing for ages in ages the like charles coke thinks that he has hacked the secret to how to run ineffective company and requires a bunch of the people who you know work through his nonprofits to learn it and basically as market based management it's market based management and basically everyone thinks it is total in uttar bunk and that it is ironic that the very rich and very capitalist charles coke has no understanding of how capitalist firm should operate but everybody you know is willing to sit through the classes because sitting through the classes is what you have to do to get charles coke money but i will say that if it was true that cambridge analytica knew how to reliably target swing voters in the most important electoral college.

"What do you want me do at via the that's the difference between a good system right like facebook's and that's that's not as the data now what's the second claimed the second claim is election fraud and and the the claim of election fraud is that cambridge analytica served as a pipeline between super pacs supporting donald trump and the trump campaign so the campaign legal center has filed a complaint with the f e c a alleging the cambridge analytic acted quote as a conduit for sharing information between the superpac and the trump campaign and that is illegal and and that's true there's they're very few restrictions on super pacs but the primary restriction is that while a presidential campaign is in the works the candidate the official campaign may not coordinate with the superpac supporting that campaign and you know there's another shout out to john oliver right like he's he's exposed the the hilarity of this and we can talk about some of the the crazier examples right like so let's go back to our friend mike murphy when jeb bush announced that he was running for president in december of twenty fourteen what he announced his statement was that he would quote actively explore the possibility of running for president of the united states okay now everybody reported that as jeb bush is running for president but because he didn't say he was running for because he's thinking about it that meant he could work directly with his superpac right to rise and he continued to work with right to rise until the very day that he had to declare his official candidacy to comply with state filing requirements and then from that point on as far as we can tell right there was no coordination no prohibited coordination between right to rise and between bush i should say i happened in i you know i wanted to pick on mike murphy who i think you know if i'm.

"The allegation which seems a very plausible allegation is that that is not true and we have read that you know as i read at the beginning of the segment from mark zuckerberg himself that cambridge analytica was able to acquire information and create fifty million profiles by using the data from three hundred thousand people who had clicked on the game and so even if right so i guess my confusion though is it sounds like so far anyway people are going after facebook and not cambridge lick and i think that's right that the is is it sort of facebook's responsibility to if if it was cambridge analytic who you know somehow broke the law and access stuff they shouldn't have facebook needed to probably a tell everybody right away right and be do some other stuff or sue them and look there is an allegation between facebook and cambridge analytica that cambridge analytica failed to delete the data in response to requests by facebook once facebook found out again we don't you know we don't know how to validate that if it's true that facebook asked cambridge analytica to delete the data in two thousand fourteen and they sold it to the trump campaign did i've heard they did and they got like some certification that they deleted it or something but i don't know that that solves of yeah right and so you know that that is going to come out in these investigations and in these lawsuits that's a factual question writing to what extent where they required to certify that they deleted the data did they certify that they deleted the data did that cover the full landscape and what did they sell onto the campaign if at again what i want to make clear if cambridge analytic had acquired all of the data legitimately right if instead of three hundred thousand people using the quiz and generating fifty million profiles from people who didn't consent if.

"All right indra cambridge analytica what's going on i've i've heard a few breakdowns about this i'm curious if if there's going to be anything the lame stream media's missing that you that you're gonna out well well what have you what have you heard about the story well i've okay if i yeah i'll be i'll be the lay person who's just of hurt a few breakdowns of this and tries to give his account while i would say that cambridge analytica used a some sort of academic i think you had made an app on facebook that was able to collect data not only your data and preferences but like your facebook friends datum preferences and they they use that cambridge analytic did too i do some targeted stuff i've heard that it's not just political stuff it's also been you know selling people stuff selling people products in that kind of thing we've been shaping everything in terms of russia and and fake news and all that but i think there's also just good old fashioned corruption in moneymaking on this as well and that's that's what i've heard so it's you know and then facebook kind of knew about it but didn't tell anybody until they heard a news story was going out and then they're like oh well would you just want to let people know that there's little breech you know right as the news was gonna come out so they did nothing until they had to and that was frustrating and a bunch of people are deleting facebook so how did i do i i think you did you did pretty well so we're gonna we're gonna build our way to the legal cases against cambridge analytica there are two broadly speaking right now as but but from a factual perspective that's that's exactly right so here's here's what mark zuckerberg himself has admitted.
