Quotes

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.

The documentary explained it better than all The Guardian's articles about it
25 July 2019 | by theohannoset-84220See all my reviews

I believe a lot of people could not follow with the whole cambridge analytica case. Mostly because of how many articles were written about it and you had to read all of them to understand it completely. The documentary however contained all the information of all the articles into an entertaining, exciting documentary that only lasted 2 hours but felt like only 1.
