Cambridge Analytica Uncovered: Secret filming reveals election tricks

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

An undercover investigation by Britain’s Channel 4 News reveals how Cambridge Analytica secretly campaigns in elections across the world, including “in Malaysia”. Bosses were filmed talking about using bribes, ex-spies, fake IDs and sex workers. (see above)

The British data firm, described as “pivotal” in Donald Trump’s presidential victory, was also behind a ‘data grab’ of more than 50m Facebook profiles, a whistleblower has revealed to Channel 4 News. In an exclusive television interview, Chris Wylie, former research director at Cambridge Analytica tells all in another video:

The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

These videos debunk any notion that social media “empowers” citizens.

Many years back I deleted my Facebook and Twitter accounts and where I am required to have a social media account such as WhatsApp, I minimise my activity on them.

Most major political changes and upheavals throughout history took place before there was the Internet.

The network of two-way telecreens on walls of rooms in homes and offices, the connectivity infrastructure, coupled with the number of people needed to monitor citizens as depicted in George Orwell’s book 1984 would have been prohibitively costly for any government in 1984 but today, we pay for the platforms, devices and connectivity for companies and governments to monitor us.
