This week we bring you part 2 of our exploration of the Cambridge Analytica Scandal — cast in a very different light. In part 1 we took a look at Christopher Wylie’s origin story and the sketchy science behind the supposed “psychological warfare mindfuck tool” Steve Bannon employed within Cambridge Analytica on behalf of Robert Mercer, which, the story goes, won the election for Donald Trump by manipulating the masses. In part 2, we’re gonna be taking a look at Wylie’s attempt to create his own Cambridge Analytica, how he turned into the supposed do-gooder whistleblower in the first place, and what it means for the accepted narrative about the scandal. We are joined again by guest writer Anthony Mansuy, a French reporter for Society Magazine. For this two-parter, Anthony conducted months of research and forty exclusive interviews. You’ll be hearing from Cambridge Analytica employees, data scientists, former Obama, Trump and Cruz campaign staffers, as well as friends and associates of Chris Wylie. The evidence lays out how Wylie spread numerous fabrications and exaggerations to minimize his contribution to the development of Cambridge Analytica's tools and conceal the true causes of his departure from the organization. More importantly, Wylie capitalized on the deepest fears held by the liberal media about the far-right, social media, and Russia; allowing him to craft the perfect narrative to fit the political moment — one that persists to this day.
