  • Published on Jun 10, 2019
  • In an unmissable talk, journalist Carole Cadwalladr digs 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 calls out the "gods of Silicon Valley" for being on the wrong side of history and asks: Are free and fair elections a thing of the past?

    Carole Cadwalladr is a complete fantasist. For example Turkey has been in negotiations to join the EU since 2005, even the EU's own website states this. Are they likely to join soon? Probably not and whilst have nothing against Turkey her statements on the matter are outright lies. If there is no prospect of them joining why are they still listed as a candidate country? The Lib Dem's and the Remain campaign were also fined for breaking spending limits but she makes no mention of this. Personally I hope the libel case brought against her as a result of this speech is successful.

    She makes a good point which is vital to be addressed and fixed but is clearly biased.
    She doesn't allow for even the possibility that those people's fears for their country could hold any validity.
    You don't have to live in London to want your country to have it's own say on immigration and other policies.
    And saying if you do come to the country you have integrate is tantamount to a lie or a hate crime, while a new terrorist attack or news about grooming Gangs and their cover up comes out every other week, shows you a lot about her bias in regards to the peoples bias she is talking about.

    In the old days, all governments had counter espionage staff and operations capable of crippling enemy operations and their systems like say ... Bletchley Park. Facebook is the enemy and governments must act regardless of what Facebook, it's boy king, or it's shareholders, do or say because Facebook is no different from the Enigma machine or the toxic organization it served back in WW II. TED presentations or invitations to respond to government demands are as effective as prayers and religions but the people at Bletchley Park had a purpose, had funding and they acted in the best interest of their nation ... not unlike what Putin and Facebook is doing to the world today.

    At 2:30, Ms Cadwalladr claims people in Ebbw Vale, Wales, UK told her they were fed up with immigrants and refugees. Rather than seriously addressing that concern, she said that opinion is odd because she only met one Polish immigrant and she found figures that said this area experiences low immigration. Clearly, people were expressing a national concern, which is why they want a national exit from the EU. Nothing but a casual, disdain for her former hometown.

    She makes some really good points about FB but also 3 fatal factual errors about the EU. Here is the evidence supporting this:
    1) The EU funding of colleges in the Welsh Valleys that she lauds was paid for from UK money paid to the EU, so it was OUR money they gave back to us (how kind! They still owe us approx ££7 Billion to 8 Billion for every year we contributed to the EU).
    2) she rightly mentions the questionable funding of Leave Parties, but forgets to mention that the Remain Parties have been fined for many breaches of Electoral rules too, and also had an extra £9.3 million paid by the Government for a leaflet to promote the EU. The decks were always stacked against the Leave Parties from the start, yet she doesn't query this - or even mention it.
    3) She focuses on targeted adverts published on FB (a limited audience) - many of which I have never seen - saying these "lies" influenced the vote for Brexit, but can only give 1 anocdotal conversation as evidence, and does not mention the very public lies in the national media (a huge audience) that influenced Remain supporters, e.g. the many statements by the UK Treasury who said a Brexit vote will cause an immediate Recession (there's been a boom instead) nor on the promises of the UK Government and Labour Party to honour the vote (which their MPs have now spent 3 years trying to overthrow). Also Leave supporters were accused of lying when they said the EU wants to have an Armed Services and wants to become a United States of Europe**, yet this is exactly what has happened*. Macron now says he even wants a Space Army***.
    So for many reasons this presentation is flawed incomplete and unbalanced, even though its points about FB are often fair.

    American government doesn’t like the power the EU has,so through Facebook etc(mainly American social media platforms)they bombarded us with BS on brexit.american government knows with us leaving the EU it would weaken it.so next time you hear Russia had a hand in brexit,it wasn’t it was American government.this is just my idea on what happened during brexit referendum.

    You have to realize at FaceBooks core, it’s a company. And a company needs money. At the end of the day, it doesn’t what they send to their users, they want money. If people want accurate news don’t use Facebook, use a news site. That’s like using a pig to learn human anatomy, some similarities but you shouldn’t trust the pig entirely

      best way is to mix it for example: read article about same topic in Guardian(lefty eu propaganda), RT(a bit righty, russian propaganda) and al jazeera (arabic propaganda) ;)

    Free and fair? When in the checkered history of democracy was that ever so? When was the electorate ever objectively informed on the issues they were voting for? Elections are always decided emotionally.
    The so called "free" press has degenerated to a half dozen conglomerates virtually all parroting leftist ideology. The traditional conservative voice is, if not outright censored, severely suppressed. The internet is essentially the only outlet left for conservative politics. Cadwalladr seeks to shut this outlet down. She is not interested in giving validity to conservative thought. She labels it all as hate and fear, but is blind to her own.
    To say that Facebook ads enabled Brexit is in my opinion naive and simplistic. The mainstream media more than balances it with its pro-EU slant. Non-assimilation of immigrants is a palpable problem for Europe. Visit any major EU city and the devastating effects of non-assimilating immigration abound. Then there is the issue of ceding monetary control to a central authority. It has been devastating to most of the EU, with Italy and Greece being the poster children. The EU is failing fiscally.
    Just because immigration has not yet occurred in her Welsh home town does not mean anything to people looking to the future and witnessing what has happened in Germany and France. It is not hate and fear, but love for tradition and loyalty of place that motivated Brexit. People do not want to be forced into some amorphous European blob. They are already Welsh and British. For good or ill, they have chosen to stay that way and I say good for them!
    The threat to democracy is not from Facebook, but from people who think like Cadwalladr.

    liberal democracy is broken because leftists broke it, not because of Facebook

  • Ronald Johnson
    Ronald Johnson 2 days ago +2

    Liberal democracy has been broken for a long time. This is just a new face of it. As The Ecconomist pointed out in July 2017, the EU suffers from a lack of democratic process. The leaders of the EU are insulated from the constituents they represent. The speaker also fails to understand the reasons for the effectiveness of the adds. The people of Wales who supported Brexit have something important in common with the people of the post-industrial Midwest of the US that made the adds effective. They do not trust the political systems that have promised them better lives for decades, but have made them the butt of some many jokes. They do not trust traditional journalists who often prove to be toadies for the political party of their choice. They don't want nice new bridges for their communities paid for by the EU so much as they want meaningful employment. If they were swayed by the Facebook adds, Google Adds, Tweets by bots, etc. it was because they wanted to be swayed. They are not nearly so ignorant and gullible as the speaker assumes they are.

    See the like/dislike bar? That's an accurate depiction of Trump's current approval rating and how he will be voted against in 2020.

    • Ronald Johnson
      Ronald Johnson 2 days ago

      Electro Spot, first off, I am not a Trump guy. However, your analysis is quite flawed. I do think Trump will lose 2020. I am, not at all confident of that, but I think he will. Having said that, his approval rating is nowhere near as low as you assert. Nor will he lose by that margin. You are living in the echo chamber of the left wing. If Trump is able to win, it will be because the Democratic Party stays in the echo chamber. More than 60% of the US population does not support a single payer system. A larger majority does not favor an open borders policy. Both of these are currently supported by most, if not all of the Democratic candidates. If the Democratic Party stays on this trajectory, Trump will win reelection. TED is typically viewed by white, affluent, liberal Americans. The fact that the dislikes are so high is surprising.

    Let's go back to the good old days when information dissemination was owned by 3 National News Outlets and usually just a couple newspapers in each local market. Turn the Internet off because if people don't realize that Facebook ads are "ads" and might not be the truth, then we are doomed. Facebook, Google, RUclip, The New York Times, The Washington, The BBC and others are commercial enterprises that buyers have to beware and have to make decisions on their trust-worthiness.

    15 minutes of tripe and blather while it is totally obvious what snake oil is being sold by this woman: she clearly embodies the total continuity of Britain's EU membership and the best she can do is to cherry-pick a region where immigration is low and where EU funds have paid for development projects. Mining in Britain was once a source of employment for many; the fact that it would naturally fizzle out is neither here nor there with regards the modern infrastructure and newly built complexes in her chosen location. We are ignoring the fact that in a country such as Britain, before the EU can submit funds for such ventures, Britain must first make its contribution to the budget, and that as every Remainer knows happens to be significantly higher than what it takes back. With regards Japanese businesses pulling out because of Brexit, this is something of a misrepresentation, and I would say fear-mongering collusion by the Japanese businesses at best. Bilateral relations between Japan and Britain exist and are not contingent on Britain's EU membership, just as Japan has ties with much of the world - most of which is outside of the EU. There isn't a single pillar to any Remainer's rationale to substantiate that a Britain outside of the EU will not be able to conduct business with Japanese firms, quite the opposite no less. Had the example given by this woman been based purely a Japanese investor's obligation specifically to the Single Market (if that is even possible) then she can rest assured that what she loses with one hand she can gain tenfold with the other as Britain's doors would be opened to over 150 economies in this world, including Japan. If the Leave campaign had been spreading disinformation to swing the vote then it was in vein. The architects of continued EU membership have cared little for the will of the 17.4 million voters and the regime has done everything to prevent it from happening - and as we know, their idea of leaving if the push comes to the shove is to keep Britain in the Single Market and the Customs Union (as with de facto members Norway and Switzerland). I also say that if the Leave platform was based on disinformation then the entire Remain lobbying consisted of threadbare cliches regurgitating platitudes of unity, and of promoting ignorance by forecasting uncorroborated apocalyptic prognostics ignoring the fact that Britain's economy is almost three trillion US dollars (World Bank source) and that there are approximately 170 countries in this world who are not EU members. The Remain lobby had its opportunity both on the web and in public to counter allegations of Leave falsehoods. Nobody muzzled the champions of remaining in the media or in the government. The people of the Welsh settlement voted with their conscience, and Carole Cadwalladr doesn't like it.

Now some people will go of and believe it, just because she said it..... how different is this to all the claims... if she's a real journalist she needs to do more investigative journalism in the old school manner I can only guess she's never done that ever, so won't know how. But reading of stats in various publications, does not prove anything.

    fb is targeting people who are posting anything anti Trump or anti police. I got blocked for a picture of Donald and the Queen having an intimate moment. All censored. When I asked for a review they allowed it. Now I reposted it as we are going through the democratic primary and I got blocked for 30 days. The review button shows an error message. I have screenshots of everything. We had an issue of police brutality locally and my girlfriend and I spoke out about it on fb. The next day two local police came to house and tried to walk right in saying that they got a call her boyfriend is trying to break in. The door was locked so they came to the back and looked in the window and started talking to us through the screen. We said to leave and they left but it was very shady. it's actually way out of character for them not to push much further. It seemed more a threat. The US is getting to be a pseudo fascist police state with fb as it's primary outlet of information at home and abroad and I believe Russia and China have much to do with all of it.

People often forget that democracy has to be regulated to be really fair... or else a simple popular vote is just noise of chaos and anarchism. It will be decision making by misinformation, non-intelligence, selfishness and lack of responsibility. It will be driven by hate and fear. Humanity will go backward towards darkness, violence, and conflicts. The solution? I think it lies in the hands of responsible tech giants.
