Cambridge Analytica Destroyed by Journalists Who wanted to Stop Brexit
The director of Cambridge Analytica, Alexander Nix, said Wednesday in the British Parliament that he feels the victim of the ‘unfair reporting’ about his company. That would have been destroyed by ‘journalists who wanted to stop the Brexit’, posted by Press Cube.
Nix appeared on Wednesday for the first time since his company went into the bottle in the British Parliament. That in response to the revelations of former employee Christopher Wylie, who in March had denounced how Cambridge Analytica dubiously collected the data from Facebook users and resold them to customers. For example, the referendum on Brexit would have been influenced.
According to Nix, however, whistleblower Wylie has mainly sold lies. “Because of his fabrications, my company has been the victim of a coordinated attack by the liberal media,” he told the MPs.
Nix: “The reports about Cambridge Analytica went viral immediately, while they were full of lies. The journalists who sent all those messages into the world were only out to stop the Brexit, by enforcing a second referendum. ‘
“If you were in my shoes today, you would feel very badly treated,” he told the MPs.
Nix further rejected the assumption that Cambridge Analytica would have played a decisive role in the Brexit referendum.
‘It is truly staggering to find that this conspiracy theory has received so much attention, and our company has done such damage. The research will in the future ever conclude that we did not have anything to do with that referendum. ‘
