2019 TED talk

In an April 2019 talk at the Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED) conference in Vancouver, journalist Carole Cadwalladr dug into one of the most perplexing events in recent times: the UK's super-close 2016 vote to leave the European Union. Tracking the result to a barrage of misleading Facebook ads targeted at vulnerable Brexit swing voters — and linking the same players and tactics to the 2016 US presidential election — Cadwalladr called out the "gods of Silicon Valley" for being on the wrong side of history and asked: are free and fair elections a thing of the past?[2]


On 18 April 2019, Carole Cadwalladr tweeted:

"This is not democracy. Lies spread in darkness paid for with cash from God knows where." Two days ago I accused Facebook of breaking democracy. @TEDchris told them they were free to respond at any time. So far? Nothing but silence...[3]


Carole Cadwalladr has reported about SAGE; on 26 April 2020 she tweeted:

"Ben Warner: 2 years ago he was doing physics postdoc. Now he’s a ‘data scientist’ advising govt & sitting on SAGE. His brother, Marc - who worked with Cummings on Vote Leave - won £250m NHS contract when Cummings entered Downing Street. And now the contract for NHS tracking app."[4]
