Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower: Facebook Is The Biggest Threat to Democracy

Written by:

A Cambridge Analytica whistleblower has come forward and says Facebook is a bigger threat to our democracy than foreign actors attempting to “meddle” in the elections. “Facebook is actually the biggest threat to our democracy, not just foreign actors,” Brittany Kaiser tells CNBC.

Kaiser is a former director at Cambridge Analytica who came forward to The Guardian in March 2018 to share information on the practices of the now-defunct political consulting firm. She left the company after a few years of work in January 2018. Kaiser’s disclosure came shortly after a different whistleblower stepped forward with information, igniting a scandal that brought down Cambridge Analytica and resulted in the Federal Trade Commission fining Facebook, 15 months later, $5 billion for mishandling data.

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Brittany Kaiser told CNBC on Tuesday that Facebook’s approach to political advertising is why they pose a threat to American democracy. “I say that specifically because it was only two weeks ago that Mark Zuckerberg decided that Facebook is not going to censor politicians that are spreading disinformation, weaponizing racial hatred and even using voter suppression tactics,” argued Kaiser, whose memoir, “Targeted,” was released Tuesday.

Kaiser’s main complaint is that Facebook refuses to censor politicians, while others would argue that the bigger problem is the censorship of everyone else.  Back in September, as the 2020 United States presidential election approaches, Facebook said it will not fact-check or remove content posted by politicians even if it is in violation of the company’s rules. Basically, because CNN (another propaganda outlet) declared something false, the propaganda campaign the ad was against (Joe Biden’s campaign) demanded it be removed.  Facebook said it didn’t want to censor politicians the ruling class elites.  Censorship is for everyone else.

Facebook is a bastion of free speech for those who claim authority over the lives of others.  But the slaves are censored and monitored at all times while online. Last week, Zuckerberg said he considered banning all political advertising from Facebook, but decided against it.  At least that would have been an across the board removal of political propaganda and not focused on eliminating speech from one side only.  “I believe that when it’s not absolutely clear what to do, we should err on the side of greater expression,” the CEO said in a speech delivered at Georgetown University.
