Unregulated data usage is an “underlying issue” of unfair elections and voter manipulation

Propaganda researcher Emma Briant says unregulated data usage by big tech companies such as Facebook is “an underlying issue” that is stopping “the kinds of policies that would create … a better society.” After the Cambridge Analytica leak exposed how data manipulation directly threatened the 2016 election, antitrust laws and campaign financing must be revisited in order to prevent it from happening again. “The issue isn’t just about what’s happening on the platforms, although that is a big part of it. We have to think about the whole infrastructure,” she says.
