Channel 4 news

It may interest some of you to know that, back in my press officer days, Channel 4 news were, hands down, the people I was most scared to get a call from. (Fortunately it didn’t happen terribly often).

I mention this because, seriously, if at all possible, watch the Channel 4 broadcasts on Cambridge Analytica, because they are TERRIFYING. (And also, weirdly thrilling. Seriously, I postponed finishing Jessica Jones to watch the NEWS).

Seriously, while the show had real flaws, the data-mining storyline in Great News is looking more and more prescient. (And my god, the data breaches in The Thick of It and Veep seem so amateur and harmless in comparison)
