A secret British intelligence network fed top journalists – and the world – lies and misinformation about the Cambridge Analytica scandal, distorting perceptions, misdirecting attention and public anger, amping up tensions with Russia, and paving the way for World War Three.
Facebook’s record-breaking settlement last year to US-based users whose personal information was harvested by Cambridge Analytica went almost entirely unremarked upon by corporate media journalists. Why?
In addition to the Cambridge Analytica story being used by Hilary Clinton to further the then-burgeoning Russiagate farce, there was a concerted, wide-ranging black propaganda campaign clandestinely run by elements of British intelligence, aggressively pushing the Cambridge Analytica-as-Russian-compromised narrative for a variety of malign purposes.
“Cambridge Analytica was not some start-up created by a couple of guys with a Mac PowerBook. It’s effectively part of the British defence establishment. And, now, too, the American defence establishment.” – Carole Cadwalladr, journalist for The Observer and The Guardian, and formerly for The Daily Telegraph, May 2017
