Data and Trumping Democracy - Episode 17

By Beth Vaughn

In this episode Beth and Kelly discuss the documentary "Trumping Democracy: Real Money, Fake News, Your Data."  In this boring, yet terrifying documentary (It's like doing your taxes!) it traces how reclusive billionaire Robert Mercer - and his gang of evil masterminds - Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, and David Bossie used Breitbart and another company controlled by Mercer - Cambridge Analytica - to find voters for Trump - and then target them with fake news by using "dark posts" on facebook. Yes, this is all real.  Yes, it does seem like a plot from Scooby Doo, just minus the "pesky kids" that save the day.
