Herself - Former Director of Business Development for Cambridge Analytica: [in front of committee of inquiry] I have been offered introductions to clients that I refused to meet with before, such as the Alternative for Germany and Marine Le Pen's campaign. I refused to even get on the phone call with them.

What are you disappointed for?
30 July 2019 | by amirali-alaviSee all my reviews

For all the people here who were hoping to see Obama as the left villain and been disappointed, I have to say he hasn't done it, in this fashion. Yes he used social media to advertise but not by spreading false news in order to target a vulnerable group of people classified by illegal data.

Why I didn't give it a 10 star? Because from an engineer perspective I was hoping to see some mechanic of their work. I'm still not 100% convinced they could be this effective.
